    Hi guys,

    This summer I'm thinking of getting a budgie! Whoohoo! I used to have them as a kid, and I don't have the time/money/heart for a new piggy, but I get lonely without a pet so my dad suggested a bird, since we still have one of the cages.

    Anyway I've been wracking my brain trying to remember the life expectancy of Australian budgies (those are my favourites) but I can't remember, it's kinda been a while.

    Anyone?

    some say 7-10 and others say 6 -15. i think it all depends on how their kept and the way their cared for.

    i read recently that if you put a eucalyptus leaf in their cage for them to chew on they live alot longer and they get nutrients from it thats unlike any other.

    HERES ONE OF THE SITES FOR YOU ABOUT IT :)

    I suggest you do a lot of homework on this. Animals need someone who knows what they're doing.

    Good luck with your budgie. Hope you have a very long happy life together.

    MoonjavaSeed Yeah, Toast!

    roughly about 8 years on average, though some live to be about 14 or 15.:eek:
