    Hi everyone!!!

    I saw this forum a lot when I looked up bird questions I had, but never joined until now. I have two budgies that have been with me since last year, Pufkafa and Martı. The green clearwing one in my avatar is Pufkafa and the white and blue recessive pied one is Martı.

    Hi from australia

    Hi, I am from australia and own one female budgie and just got our new cockatiel from the breeder 24 hours ago. They are in separate cages and will be some time before they meet out of cage. Our cockatiel is very scared and timid at this time but that is to be expected.
