While our budgie babies are typically reserved before they are born, we often have young adults available for immediate adoption. Like all of our birds, they eat an organic, wholesome diet and are provided opportunities for exercise, flight and play. Adoption fees are $5 and up depending on age, color, variety, and level of training and/or tameness. Please read the description below each photo for details. Sorry, no shipping. Pick up is in Fort Collins, Colorado. We also have cages, organic foods and other budgie supplies available for purchase at time of pick up.
PLEASE NOTE: Our specialized breeding program is on hold until further notice. When we moved to a new home, we retired our breeding pairs. I will need to replace them – and I’m extremely picky about pair selection. In the meantime, my family and I are taking a break from the round-the-clock care that raising baby budgies require.

Like to buy two for my mom who is a senior and loves birds
I am in the process of filling out your adoption form I have a few questions I am not particular on the sex or age of budgie or what breed it is also I would like two companion budgies. Do you have anything availale at this time? What would be the cost for both buggies? Thank You Marilyn
I had a parakeet when I was young that I loved and who was a happy health bird, so when my son wanted one, I jumped on board. Unfortunately the parakeet we bought from a local pet store was terribly tramatized when he was removed from the others and it has taken him a full 6 months to start singing and acting like a happy bird. We have him out of his cage daily and he allows my son and daughter to handle him, but his is still skitish. We would like him to have a friend, but I am very wary of buying from a pet store again. Do you have any adults available for adoption or can we be placed on a waiting list for a baby?
interested in buying a hand-raised budgie for a friend to a blue one I already own.
I am interested in any full grown or otherwise hand fed and tame budgie as a companion to my budgie. I am looking to take one home right away and am interested in particular in “Homewood”. Is this bird available?
We got 3 parakeets in 2005. (Buddy-blue, Sunny-yellow, Herbie-white). Since then, Buddy and Herbie passed away 🙁 . We have since gotten “Silly”-(blue and white) for Sunny. It has been about 6 months they were together. Now Sunny has sadly passed away, leaving just Silly. I want to get 2 more and my wife wants to get just 1 more. We have a pretty big cage, about 24″x24″x36″. What would be best, 1 or 2 more? Thanks
Sorry for your losses. 3 parakeets would fit in your sized cage (refer to https://puppiesareprozac.com/budgie-parakeet/care-articles-links/ for measurement recommendations), however many times, parakeets prefer even numbers so they can pair up with a favorite buddy. With threesomes, one often gets left out.
E-mailed sometime ago .. Never heard back. I hope you will be up & running in 2016. I would love to give a baby parakeet a loving home.
Budgies, hand-fed are the PERFECT pet. In the past I’ve had males and a female. I would be interested in adopting a hand-fed young adult. I have a 2 yr. old male parrotlet. Do you ship? What is the price to N. Georgia? thanks. Linda
Am interested in finding a breeding of English Budgies. Do you have any or know of a breeder that may?
