    Do the males or females talk more or at all?

    Thank you,
    Lynn

  • Lynn, generally speaking, hand-raised males are more apt to talk more. You can read more about the gender differences on our FAQ page: http://puppiesareprozac.com/budgie-parakeet/as-pets-faq/

    Hello,
    I am going to be getting a budgie from you, and I was wondering if a boy or a girl would be better personality, training, cuddling, etc. wise.
    Could you also tell me everything you teach your budgies before they are sold? Thank you!

  • Malia Busekrus

    Which is better a boy or girl?

  • I’m so proud of our birds. I love the birds that we raised together. And I love you mom.

    Hi!
    I’m new to parakeets. I bought one today at the pet store because I’ve done my research and found out that they make great pets. I have been trying to figure out what the coloring of mine is considered. Could you help me out if I sent you a picture? I’ve viewed your website a couple of times and you sound like an expert! It would be awesome if you could help me learn more about my bird.
    Thank you (:
    Rielle

    Your birds are just stunning!
    What a great treasure you have in these feathered friends.
    They would win competitions, I am sure. (Perhaps they already have!)
    Thanks for the photos.

    Hi,

    What are the evident benefits to breeding the “american” strain back into the “exhibition” strain? How does lifespan compare? I have two crossed budgies in my room, but the sampling is too small for me to draw any conclusions. They are much more flight adept than my English have been, and so they reap the benefits of much more exercise. So far they have both been exceptionally healthy, owing–I suspect–to the genetics material they inherited from an exceptionally long lived, uber-alpha American male who sired almost everything in my room. They inherited their mothers size, but they have there fathers sleek athletic lines instead of her waddly inept physicality. I think the are exquisitely proportioned and have already outlived their English budgie mother, but not come near their father’s 15 years. I believe, at least in this pair, that they embody the best of both strains in idealized form….

    Just curious what your larger sampling has indicated.

    Thank you,

    Heidi Boyd

    PS: Do you know of anyone breeding “crosses” in the central Florida region?
