Happy New Year and welcome to you and your mum Tara. It's great to hear that she did a lot of research beforehand - usually when budgies are gifted as presents there isn't much in the way of previous research.
Tara, you've come to a great place to learn even more about budgies and stay updated on all the best practices for budgie care! Please be sure to read through the forums' many budgie articles and "stickies" as a start; if you have questions afterwards please feel free to ask as we'd love to help.
We hope to see you around!
and Princess Mallorn!
Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic
Ringo, I'm looking forward to seeing your picture.
Please tell your Mom to get you the largest cage possible. Width is more important that height.
The Prevue Hendryx F040 and F050 are great cages.
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.

I got Ringo a flight cage! Hes very very happy in it, and can stretch his wings and try to fly around, but he will just make like he is flying and has those wings going a mile a minute. He seems content. He is chirping and singing and babbling. it took him a few weeks, but I think he is slowly coming around.. Not really.. he still runs away when I put my hands in the cage. I dont try to grab him though. I am giving him time and space but I do talk to him a lot and play mexican music for him when I am at work. Why Mexican you ask? Because he likes it!!! hahah. He also llkes Stings voice on Enigma radio... lol.... so thats my update for now.
OH, and I am seriously considering getting him a buddy. I have heard so much about them being social and living in packs. But I dont want to have any set back with how far he has come by himself.
