It’s World Budgie Day on March 18th so if you own a Budgerigar or just love these smaller members of the Parrot family then read on.
Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans celebrated the day with his listeners in 2012 so let’s hope he marks the occasion again. He originally believed it was Budget Day but quickly changed his mind and realised it was World Budgie Day.
Facts About Budgies
Budgies (called Parakeets in the USA) originate from the inland regions of Australia. Adult Budgies can grow up to 18cm tall, weigh 30g upwards and live for up to 14 years of age. They are a variety of colours, including white, blue, green and yellow.
Budgies are easily tamed, making them the perfect pet for many people. They are also quiet (by bird standards anyway,) easy to care for and have a fun personality. Male Budgies are excellent mimics. Although they only have a small voice they can learn an incredible number of words. Female Budgies don’t learn to mimic as well.
Budgies are social creatures and more than one should ideally be kept together.
