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
So......it'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
I'm so very sorry for your loss of Freddie.
How wonderful that he was able to share your lives for eleven delightful years!
Welcome to your new little Brucie. I look forward to meeting him via pictures once he's all settled into his new home.
Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.
These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.
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.

He came down from Heaven unto this earth below
