Used to have two parakeets that would become vey vocal at dawn ,dusk, and anytime I was speaking on the phone. Once a week I would mist them with lukewarm water in spray bottle. They would move right into the mist and appeared to enjoy it. Also found sandpaper sleeves for perches which helped keep their little claws from becoming too long and thus trimming was not needed as often. They were very fond of millet and their cuttle bone. :D

thanks Tangy. :)
they are babies and have not been hand tamed,i shall give them time to
adjust to our home lifes goings on,then i will begin the process
of hand taming,i belive millet to be the way to a budgies heart lol.
your budgies are beautiful,i really like the pair,
at first i wanted an all yellow,however that soon changed when i saw
the two i chose.
i need to add one or two things to their cage next week,and hopefully
they will come out of there shells a bit,
i joined a budgie forum yesterday,and played a video of someones
birds,my two were very vocal,then the video ended and i've not heard a
peep from them since.
all in good time i guess. the misting is a great idea and one i shall remember,thanks for that. :)
i have to say i did think about a cockateil some time ago,however the screech that i remember put me off a bit,my sister had one years ago.
