Meet Zippy!

Zippy lives in California with Mr. Man.

Zippy is a male Budgerigar who was adopted on November 10, 2017 at the age of three months. Zippy’s owner is a semi-retired marketing professional currently involved in the creative development for several series of large painted acrylic canvases. He is interested in learning about Mister Zippy’s enhanced ultraviolet tetrachromatic color vision as a means to expand his own current palette.

We are great pets to have. My owner knew I would be messy, but he never expected me to be such a unique and precious creature. He has learned a lot about me from reading ornithology textbooks and various written accounts of bird ownership. We budgies are very different from any other pets and have unique ways of sharing our love or or showing our unhappiness, but we tend to be very happy most of the time, chirping and making all manner of sounds.

Mister Zippy has his own blog. You can follow his adventures at

Meet Pixel and Kiwi! 

These adorable little fellows live in the U.S.

Kiwi is a 4 year old budgie who was hand-raised. Within 2 months of taking him home, he quickly started to learn words and phrases. Kiwi was 3 years old when his owners brought him home a companion, Pixel!

Pixel is also hand-raised and came from the same breeder.

You can see more of Kiwi and Pixel on their facebook page, Kiwi and Pixel the Parakeets.

They also have a YouTube channel!

Meet Babadook!

Babadook lives in the United States with Hannah.

Baba loves his bell toys, particularly grabbing them with his beak and swinging them around. He also likes to make funny noises into his food dish.

He’ll always go for a sprig or two of millet, but his secret weakness is baby carrots.

You can see more photos (and videos) of Baba on his facebook page, Babadook the Budgie.

Meet Bobby B. Boots!

Bobby lives in Australia, with mama Glynn.

Bobby was born with twisted legs and French moult (no main flight or tail feathers). He is wearing boots to correct his contracted legs as he grows.

He likes playing with his ball and having adventures with his dinosaur. His favourite food is corn.

You can see more of this little darling (and I predict, future internet superstar) on his facebook page, The Tiny Adventures of Bobby Boots.

Meet Holly!

Holly lives in Minnesota with Karon and Ernie (Cooper’s Cutie, August 2014).

Holly was adopted after Ernie lost his buddy, Bert, to a sudden illness. Holly had also lost her cage mate, and her former owner no longer wanted to keep her.

Holly is a sweet, fearless, smart and very curious girl who adored Ernie from the minute she met him.

She loves her mash, especially apples. And she loves exploring all over even in spots that are supposed to be off limits.

She and Ernie love their afternoon naps on the shadow box and playing with all kinds of toys.

Ernie was so sad before we found Holly but now he sings and chatters all the time. They are so cute together and we are so lucky to have our sweet baby girl for her first Christmas.

Meet Charlie!

Charlie lives with Steve and Georgina in the UK.

He is a great little character who loves nothing more than getting out and about and exploring in the house.

He loves the kitchen and showering ‘occasionally’ on top of his favourite bottle.

Charlie likes keeping an eye on passers by as he looks out of the window.

Charlie is 2 years old and has lots of toys including his favourite glitter ball. He is also a talented footballer and smooth talker with quite an extensive vocabulary. His latest phrase is “I’m a tiger.”

You can find more pictures (and videos!) of Charlie on his facebook page, Charlie Budgie Superstar.

Meet Chirpy!

Chirpy lives in Spain with Pam.

Chirpy’s favourite toy is her penguin.

Her hobbies include throwing things on the floor, tormenting her humans and she loves and running, even though she’s a great flyer.

She loves to roll over to have her tummy tickled and wants lots of head rubs.
