We only had one pet in our family, approx.60 years ago. It was a budgie & when Joey died, we all cried ! How many have you David?


Comment by peterp on 17th February 2010 at 07:47
Brings back memories used to have a aviary myself,nice colours.


Comment by dave marsh on 17th February 2010 at 08:46
In 1955 when I was the Saturday boy in the pet shop up The Wiend,cock budgies were 10 shilling and hens 7/6p.I expect they were a lot 'cheeper'then.


Comment by peterp on 17th February 2010 at 09:07
You would be lucky if you can buy a budgie fron a pet shop for less than £20


Comment by june on 17th February 2010 at 10:43

Lovely, We had both Budgie's and Canary's when I was young, but I haven't seen a budgie or a canary in years..


Comment by David Barker on 17th February 2010 at 12:57
Used to have about 50 down to 22 at the moment Ernest ,breed them since 1992 ,just a hobby be pairing them up in the spring.The Aviary 30ft long so plenty room.
Had to go into the flight to take the photo then i wouldnt get the wire mesh in front of lens.
Thanks everyone, glad you like them ,thanks June

I like the way budgies chatter, it sounds so peaceful. I wouldn't keep one in a cage though, that aviary sounds very good David, plenty of room for them to fly around.

In the words of Billy Bradshaw - mam can I have a budgie.


Comment by josie pennington nee beckett on 17th February 2010 at 22:33
