The Budgie Nest

What to do when you are at the pet store.

Go look at the budgies(parakeets)and find a few that look in good health. Make sure the budgies are active, no bald spots and are awake. When you see one you like, whether it is because of its colour or looks cute, ask a store helper to get it out to inspect. Check the bird all over to make sure it looks in good health. Then ask the helper how old it is. You should try to get the youngest bird possible. It doesn't matter what sex of bird you get, even though some say males are better pets. Unless you plan to get an english budgie, they should price between 12 and 20 dollars.
