So fun to witness Budgie Love in the fifties!
Don’t let your budgies eat grapefruit!
The article (“A Rage for Parakeets”, LIFE April 20, 1953) says to give them whisky for a cold.
It also says Macy’s sold 200 to 500 budgies per week.
They were really popular in the 1950s. I hope all those budgie found good homes…
Yikes on the whisky! I’ll have to post the whole article soon.
I like the aviary the petstore has
I believe the Flock was eyeing that, too.
