Hi everybody and thank you for a brilliant website I've looked at many times.
I just adore budgies, got my husband hooked too!!!
11 years ago my then 88 year old parents turned up on Christmas day with a budgie as my Xmas present, sounds a bit random but they knew I wanted one and they knew a breeder.
Well, Freddie became a big part of our lives and he was loved so much. We lost him 3 weeks ago and are gutted. I've surprised myself at just how much it hurts me still not having him around talking and whistling's welcome Brucie, our new lilac and white budgie who only arrived yesterday.
I've a concern with him and want to do everything right so I hope you don't mind me asking for advice on the forums, I think I'll be in safe hands on here.
Thank you everyone

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them! ;)

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Hi Bruciebudgie! I am still a little egg in terms of number of posts loo, but I love all my birdies (I have a LOT lol) and we are happy to have you!!!

Having parakeets has made me a happier human. I love them so much.
