I had many birds growing , a lot of them budgies. I had wanted another bird since we got rid of our teil 4 years ago. I had two leopard gecko lizards that were not very tame, and that were not cheap to take care of. I called a pet store and asked if they would consider a trade. They said yes, so I went and got a little female named sophie. Sophie was finger tame within a day. She was the lovliest, tamest, gentlest budgie I had ever seen. I took care of her the best I could. Then one week after we got her, she was dead in her cage. We do not know what happened. I just hope that wherever she is, she is happy. I recently got a new budgie named Skylar. She is a great bird, but I still find myself calling her Sophie just wishing it was her.
