I got about 28 budgies at home. Interestingly in India they are known as Love Birds only. Do let me know how you like the pictures I took with my 6600. I am sure that you all love the quality;-). I wanted to teach one of them to talk, but i had to leave home for work. so right now they are in the hands of my family.

We own two budgies. Sunny is almost completely yellow, and Sam who is blue. They are very smart little birds, and they can learn to speak. They are like mini parrots ... :)

Sam will say hi ya or hello ... :) He tries simple stuff or will chirp back at us. Sunny was one year old when we got her and was never taught to speak, but we try. I think the younger they are the better they learn. It takes a lot of patience and repetition. Good lucks!!!

yea, you got to start young, otherwise you may never teach them to speak, also for better results you have to be its only family. means, if there are other budgies, then they would prefer to speak in "budgie tongue". if there are no other budgies, then you are its family and it will try speaking your language.

28 is a lot of birds. I bet they keep you busy. I call them parakeets but I have heard them called budgies. I don't have any now because I have cats and I don't trust them. But I did have them before but was never able to teach them to talk.

My budgie is much smarter than I am. He is a brilliant little fellow and I marvel at how he looks at the computer screen and watches as I type or when I put on a video he watches it with me sometimes. He also can recognize people on Skype that he has seen and he enjoys chirping in whenever I make a voicemail!

I like Budgies very much,they are very cute to see.These Budgies are similar to Love birds.I have brought two budgies to my house and for these birds i have brought one cage and it is very expensive.Everyday i take care about these Budgies and their food and diet.Whenever i went outside i will keep them in a safe place i.e cages.These budgies look very cute,funny and pretty looking.

I only have one budgie but I love her dearly. I wish I had more. I think in the future I want lots and lots of budgies. I love watching them interact and play together. Happiness is a happy budgie. :)
