Hi, I am known as jeanebug, I lost my husband about 16 months ago, I moved into a retirement/ assisted living apartment, where I have found lots of senior friends my age, I am a handicap lady, I bought my budgie 'Heeny' last April 9th. he has become my baby, I havent had him outside the cage, but he knows his name and he knows he is loved. I am here to find out more information about budgies. three ladies here have budgies, and we talk about them at lunch in the dinning room. this is a pet friendly community. so far I have really enjoyed this site, and I am getting plenty of help on the subject of budgies.
