Due to their gentle nature and small size, budgies are the most popular pet bird in the world!
- Australian farmers sometimes consider budgies to be pests since they can travel in large flocks and raid crops.
- Budgies, as with all parrots, have two toes that face forward and two that face backwards!
- Boy or Girl? Look at the area where the nostrils are located. If that area is blue it is a boy, if it is brown or tan it is a girl.
- Budgies have between 2,000 and 3,000 specialized feathers on their bodies! Each type of feather has an important job to do from helping the budgie fly to keeping it warm.
- On average a budgie takes 65 to 85 breaths per minute!
