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?

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.

You would be lucky if you can buy a budgie fron a pet shop for less than £20

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.
