Top Ten Birds to Have as Pets

People (not all) love petting birds because they're easier to care for than other birds. They're way easier to train. They don't require much grooming and social. I would also consider them very social. And what's more they're beautiful and interesting to find.

The Top Ten

1 Budgerigars The budgerigar, also known as the common pet parakeet or shell parakeet and informally nicknamed the budgie, is a small, long-tailed, seed-eating parrot.

Best animal and pet to ever live.

I love my budgie!

I had a budgerigar once. It died from cancer. I really liked it. - DontMakeARookieMistake

I have 2 adorable cute little budgies and they are beautiful
they should be number 1! 🐤

2 Cockatiels

Edit: We realised Lily was a boy, so we renamed him Kiwi. Charlie and Kiwi now live with a female cockatiel called Evie, who laid an egg. We named the chick Thomas. They also live with two budgies called Harry and Lila, who are ready to breed - IceBearRules

I have two birds called Charlie and Lily. They can sometimes get aggressive but they are still adorable. Lily is laying eggs as well - IceBearRules

Definitely! They are such funny birds. Mine bobs his head, dances and screeches to any song by Barry White, Randy Crawford and George Ezra! He also sings in my face and nibbles my bottom lip. His name is Charlie and I love him to bits! - Britgirl

I don't have one (yet), but looking at the ratings, my research, their personalities, etc, they seem like really good pets!
