Cool Holiday Shopping for Budgies

Hey there, frivolous money-spenders. As you all know, Christmas, Festivus, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc., etc., are coming up, and that means it's time to spend some cold hard cash on our budgies. Anyways, I thought I'd help you with your holiday shopping this year by sharing some of my favourite online parrot stores with you guys. This list is more for the newbie parronts out there, so apologies to my fellow budgie veterans.

There's another website that I'll add, but I won't be doing so until I order my kids' Christmas presents from them. Some of the items I'm getting them are of limited supply, and I refuse to surrender those goodies to your budgies! So, there's a certain site with "Things" in the name that I won't be listing quite yet. Anyways, if you guys have any other online stores to share, that'd be great .

Feel free to drop me a PM to hire me as your personal budgie shopper . I'd love to help you come up with a wish list for your budgies .

I still do most of my shopping without resorting to online stores, but surely these links will be very helpful to members here.

I just had to laugh at your Festivus reference "A Festivus for the rest of us!" My brother and I have our own way of celebrating it on December 23rd.

Hey, you've got to stay inclusive with the holiday thing, eh aluz . I don't know what Portugal is like in terms of parrot supplies, but there's hardly anything at the dozen or so places I've gone to in Ontario. All there seems to be is basically JW Pet products and other generic brands. Anyways, I do a lot of my shopping online. Or in the US.

The Beak Boxes site should definitely be checked out by North American members.

When shopping for my pets I always travel to Lisbon (capital city), because the pet stores there have a wider array of toys/accessories at more affordable prices.
Most of my birds aren't that demanding when it comes to toys, so I usually replace the old toys for new ones on their hatchdays/Christmas (mainly wooden chew toys) or the standard more long lasting bird toys found in most places like swings, toy bells, ladders, etc. Besides the toys or some other accessory in need of replacement (food/water container, perches), the flock also gets special treat sticks to feast on for Christmas.

For my very playful and extremely toy oriented lovebird Khaleesi, I have to be more creative to meet his needs and many times adjust children toys or parts of board games to keep my boy happy and satisfied. Even despite the many fancy toys he has, his favourite toys to play with are still the bottle caps and plastic coins.

Norm, you monster! I bet Tiki thought the truck was for him!

What CDs did you get for the kids, Jo Ann? I'm getting Budgerigar Country and Spirit of the Outback for my kiddies. Actually, my dad's getting them for me as incentives to finish my university course. And no problem . I'm here to help you spend money .

I have no clue what Lisbon is like, but I can just picture my dad trying to navigate around downtown Toronto to go to pet shops . It was painful enough trying to get to the Humane Society for my new trio. I guess if I do go shopping in Toronto, I'll have to make a point of going to Hogtown Vegan. I've always wanted to go :3.

The thing with my kids is that I only have around a dozen toys for them, which isn't very fun. Heck, some of them should just be thrown out. Everybody thinks that 12 is plenty of toys, but I'd have to disagree.

The Natural Bird Company that has some amazing perches is going to cost me a fortune!

Those are some pretty awesome perches, eh ? Man, if only shipping, handling, customs, tariffs, and other money-grabs weren't in my way .

It's nice to have some UK sites to go too. I'll be treating my birds to something soonish.
