    this is my old thread. Since that thread I decided to wait a bit, and decide some time latter because It wasn't handy, the parrots already had a pretty good cage. Some time ago I got an idea of using a plastic mesh (polythene) instead of metal wire mesh. The cage will be for two budgerigars...

    New budgie

    I'm a new owner of a budgie. I've had her for a few months now and bonding is tough. I've studied as much as I can and been very patient with her. But no matter what I do she's still scared to come close to me. I need some advise. I don't know what to do now.

    Live Plants for budgies

    Hello again everyone! I would like to add a few live plants into my budgies’ cage. I feel as though it may be an enriching and exciting for them to have a new component in their cage other than new toys. Can anyone recommend some safe live plants for budgies? Thanks!
