Aww he is so cute! I always had a parakeet growing up, I’d love to get another. One I had for a really long time, her name was Silver, she even said “pretty bird” it wasn’t very clear but you could make out what she said. I probably had about 3/4 of them up until I turned 18, she was the only one that I ever got to talk though. I think she said something else but I can’t remember. They’re such happy, friendly little guys.

Aw so super cute!! I'd love to have a bird, but I'd have to live in the garage to make room for another pet in the house lol.

Congratulations! When I was a pre teen we had a parakeet names Dudley I loved him so much! I got to take him when I moved out of the house to college. He said all sorts of things. Make sure you give him a Cuttlebone and oystershell

Congrats.

I use to keep/breed budgies when I was little, amazing little dudes! Keep them well stimulated, and if kept similarly ensure that you're socializing with it as they can get lonely.


They also love fruits (watermelon, rockmelon and apples) so would also reccomend giving them fruit for a varied diet!
