"Last November my husband and I went to the National pet show at the NEC. We knew we wanted to add to our pet family (we have 3 dogs & 3 chickens) but we weren't really sure what species we would like or what would fit best in our family.
While we were there we went to The Budgerigar Society stand and met Eric the budgerigar...... Wow! What a little cutie! And so so tame.... We had no idea a budgie could be like that.
When we got home we had a long chat and couldn't stop talking about Eric. Over the following weeks I contacted Rob from the budgerigar society (accredited breeder) over Facebook and bombarded him with more questions and did loads of research on budgies.
On 16th January we brought Elvis the budgerigar home.
Rob had hand tamed him for us and he settled in straight away.
He is an absolute delight to have around, he is so loving and I've recently started clicker training him which he seems to enjoy.
We really couldn't be happier and that's all down to you at the National Pet Show & The budgerigar Society. Thanks to you all we were able to make a thoroughly informed choice"
