Iíve recently adopted a young rescue parakeet from the Seattle Animal Shelter, who had been found flying loose outdoors a couple of months earlier and was taken in by a foster parent. I havenít had a companion bird since I was a kid. In my research about caring for parakeets, Iíve found that both online advice and books often give contradictory recommendations. But I tend to trust Tweeters. If any of you have budgie experience and would be willing to answer the occasional question or two, Iíd be grateful. I promise not to inundate you with queries about my new little companion.
Thanks much and best wishes to all for a Happy New Birding Year,
