I had a budgie named Calypso(he was all tropical colours) when I was a kid. He was the best one I ever owned, very tame, would hop around on the floor after me when I put him down. Loved that little guy Until the dog got him one day

What do I do about his desperation to escape his cage when I'm home??? I can't let him out all the time? He gets really angry and is tries to squeeze through the bars, some of which I think he might actually be able to squeeze his squawking head through now that I've seen him try.

I am a vet that sees a ton of birds so I can help with any questions. The book "Birds for Dummies" by Brian Speer is actually an excellent beginner's resource!

I have a green Quaker parrot named Pickles. Just a word of caution on the mirror, in case nobody has mentioned it (I'm cooking dinner, and I'm too lazy to check!) - some people avoid putting mirrors in a bird's cage because the bird can sorta fall in love with the bird in the mirror and shy away from human contact. So you may wanna think about excluding a mirror while you establish a bond.

Does anyone else have one of those big round huts for the birds to sleep in? I'm debating on buying one but I've heard conflicting stories.

Me, too.

We had a beautiful budgie named Birt. He looked exactly like this:



He lived for years, I'm sure much longer than he should have. I came home from school one day, and he was bunched up in the corner of his cage...no longer with us. I found a little box and buried him in the yard right away.

He was a great bird...I'll never forget the grip of his tiny claws on my finger when he'd swoop in for a landing after being let out of his cage.
