Product Description

Identification: The Budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus), also known as common pet parakeet, shell parakeet and informally nicknamed the Budgie, is a small, long-tailed, seed-eating parrot. Budgerigars are the only species in the Australian genus Melopsittacus, and are found wild throughout the drier parts of Australia where the species has survived harsh inland conditions for the last five million years. Budgies are naturally green and yellow with black, scalloped markings on the nape, back, and wings, but have been bred in captivity with colouring in blues, whites, yellows, greys, and even with small crests. Budgies are popular pets around the world due to their small size, low cost, and ability to mimic human speech. The origin of the budgerigar's name is unclear. The species was first recorded in 1805, and today is the third most popular pet in the world, after the domesticated dog and cat. The budgerigar is closely related to the lories and the fig parrots. They are one of the parakeet species, a non-taxonomical term that refers to any of a number of small parrots with long, flat and tapered tails. 

Coloring:  Coloring can vary from images posted, as they can range from a very soft color to more vivid coloring.

Temperament: Budgies are very easy to tame if acquired at a young age. They are very playful and active, and quieter than most other parrots. After the domesticated dog and cat, these sweet parakeets are the third most popular pet in the world, even available to mimic human speech. 

Breeding: Budgie breeding is a relatively easy process but requires experience gained overtime. In both captivity and the wild, budgerigars breed opportunistically and in pairs.
