Are budgies good birds for beginners?
Posted On October 17, 2019
I would say “yes?” reason for this is because unlike some of the bigger birds you can get, Budgies don’t really like to cuddle or be handled. Or at least not like cuddle in the ways you might want. They don’t like being grabbed, or handled in those ways, generally speaking. You can train them to sit on you, like your finger or your shoulder and they might give you little kisses. That would be about the extent of cuddling and handling they might want. But, if you can get a Budgie as a baby, you CAN teach it to like things such as laying in your hand, or on your belly.
If you have only 1 budgie, it will bond VERY strongly with you if you give them the attention they need.
