Hello friends - I hope this forum is for keet owners as well as budgies! I recently acquired 2 meets from the MSPCA (Massachusetts shelter), one male and one female. I'm excited because I just got them to start eating homemade mash!! They we basically seed fed birds prior, I believe. I will post a picture. I look forward to getting lots of advice and ideas.

Welcome! There are members here with many different species of parrots ranging from budgies to macaws. Some members even own finches, canaries, pigeons, ducks, and chickens.

Enjoy the site! Come back often - post comments, ask questions or just read! In the US we have "parakeets" unless someone gets an English budgie. Just read "budgie" as "parakeet". People don't make a distinction between a parakeet and budgie. So nice of you to take in a pair from rescue.

This is so true lol! If I'm talking to people who don't own birds I usually just call them parakeets because if I call them budgies they look at me like I'm crazy and ask what a budgie is :laugh:
