How to hold a budgie

There are a lot of reasons to hold a budgie. They're so adorable and they love it when they can rest in your warm hand. Also, it's always a good idea to check on your budgie's claws, beak and eyes. If the claws get too long, you can clip them. Some budgies get an overgrown beak - when the beak grows faster than usual - and then you have to trim it a few times a year. Most budgies never get problems with their beak, though :)

This is how you can hold your budgie (pictures from
