I don't know why we got the first budgie, Jimmie. when I was 11. I just remember walking to a pet shop with my Mum and leaving with a budgie in a cage. I suspect Mum really wanted one as she was marvellous with him, endless patience. He lived for 11 years and the day he died he came to see each of us in turn for a cuddle as if he was saying 'goodbye'.
I was smitten and had budgies through the years, but it is very recently that I have gotten into them in a BIG way, breeding and training.
I don't think I could live without a bird in my life anymore
