Hi my name is Jane and I'm new to the forum. I am also new to keeping a pet Budgie and looking forward to bringing him or her home next week. Despite doing my research and not going into this lightly i am hoping to get lots of tips on whats best for my new feathered friend. In the past I have looked after Syrian Hamsters, the lifespan of a Hammy is only approximately two to two and a half years and I unfortunately lost my little Bailey last November. I am not going into this lightly, after looking after a friends Budgie while she was on holiday I absolutely loved it. I decided to research Budgies with the view to getting one of my own, the cage is set up ready and next week (Friday) to be precise is officially Budgie day, and I'm looking forward to it.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

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

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.
