BUDGIES ARE EXTREMELY SOCIAL BIRDS. THEY CAN LIVE IN GROUPS OF UP TO THOUSANDS!

These beautiful birds originate from Australia’s deserts, scrublands and woodlands. They are often a mix of colorful shades of blue, green and yellow. Growing to about 7 inches in length and weighing only about an ounce these birds will typically live 8 years. Budgerigars make great house pets due to their vibrant colors and abundance in the wild.
