Where Budgies Like to Live

When choosing a place for your Budgie to live, take into consideration the size of the cage. If you are planning on getting one budgie the minimum cage requirements would be (46cm x 30cm x 30cm), and for two budgies minimum cage size of (80cm x 60cm x 60cm).  

A wire cage is the most suitable as it allows the budgie to climb around the cage. Choose a cage that has no more than half an inch between the bars.

Use sand sheets as bedding for the cage and perches and toys will also be needed.

Exercise and Play

Budgies are playful birds and need toys to occupy themselves, toys like ladders, swings, bells and ropes are good options. Whether you have one or two budgies it is important to let them out of the cage to exercise at least once a day to stretch their wings. Make sure that the room is secure, and that they cannot escape.
