Well, I got totally stunned today when I saw this baby silver Budgie that is 6 weeks old at most and at a small mom and pop pet store that hand-fed this baby. It is super friendly & loves to be around you, and they will NOT sell to a breeder and scrutinized me too making sure I know how to care for it and give it a good home. It impressed me because they have A very clean pet store and super nice people. I had to wash my hands before holding the bird with some special soap they had to be sure no germs get on the baby.
I ALMOST brought this one home. I am going to "sleep on it" and they're going to hold it for me until 3 pm tomorrow.
I KNOW this baby will have to be in her own cage and I will have to DAILY spend lots of time to keep this baby sociable.
I was shocked to see how easy going this baby is. I have never seen a budgie friendly like this. The ones I see are so skittish, but not this one
I wonder, is it a male or female? I can't tell. They feed this baby zuoreem pellets, & veggies and they showed videos of them hand-feeding him when he was smaller.
I love the idea that this baby is so friendly My budgies I have now Oz and her new mate Pepper that she isn't 100% fond of are both skittish and Oz now being 5 I won't even try to tame her. She lets me pet her and hold her in her house that's about it, And Pepper the new one it scares him to come out he flutters and acts frightened I DID though make progress with Pepper as he will let me pet him IF I don't try to take him out of his cage. BUT this one at the pet store I have already named him STERLING because he is silver& is super friendly, he really loves attention.
I did step away and went home to give it a day to be 100% sure I'm going to do it. But I have never seen a budgie so friendly.
Any thoughts on this??
I will have a 2-week health guarantee and I can take it to my avian vet tomorrow (they said after 4) I can show up and they will examine him, and any issue I will get a refund. I was told they have their vet check them as thet have other birds too. But I can and would take Sterling to my vet tomorrow IF I decide to get it.
I wonder too if this is a male or female? Does anyone know?? I forgot to ask them when I was there
