Adoption of budgie, parakeet?
My neice wants a parakeet (budgie) and I am well aware that there are several birds in shelters needing a home but I cannot find a budgie for adoption as any none have any or they want so much money for one that I could literally buy 20 from even the most expensive shops.
What are other ways to get a budgie needing a domestic.
Oh, and I'm not looking for a cheap or free bird as the cage, supplies and ongoing food and toys doesn't come with a free or cheap bird.
Firstly It is great to read someone with common sense
" I'm not looking for a cheap or free bird as the cage, supplies and ongoing food and toys doesn't come near a free or cheap bird."
That is the most important thing ...
If you lived in NSW AUSTRALIA I'd afford you one .
But have you looked up a budgie club or looked for a local breeder
Here is a website and most of the members are selling their birds
$10 - $20
