Unfortunately to a change in personal circumstances, I’m having to sell these beautiful, sociable budgies. £70 for both. Current cage (including extras) also available - see below
About the birds:
Clive is the mainly-green multicoloured one. Eric is the blue and white one. Both are approx 11 months old (exact date is unknown)
Eric is fully tame, will happily hop onto a hand and enjoys spending the day playing with Clive, eating and proclaiming his joie de vivre
Clive is more timid and wary. Eric has helped him be less anxious, but as yet haven’t been able to tame him. Hopefully with patience and perseverance, he’ll also warm to his human companions. But, like Eric, he enjoys spending the day watching the world, singing to the radio and playing with Eric
Both are, to the best of my knowledge, healthy and illness free. They are currently on a seed-only diet and *adore* millet spray and stick treats
The pair get along well and would be suitable to remain as the only birds in the household or join a larger flock, as they’re both exceptionally sociable with other budgies
They are currently housed in a relatively large cage (black one, pictured), with the main cage door open all day for them to come/go as they wish, as I am usually home most of the day
Cages and extras:
This cage can be sold with them for an extra £70 - this includes cage, 2 wooden perches and 2 plastic food/water bowls (as pictured), as well as 2 smaller plastic perches, 4x toys, a metal food/water bowl and budgie bath
I also have a smaller cage (very similar to white one pictured), which can be purchase for £25 and includes the cage, 2x wooden perches and 2x plastic food bowls. This would only be suitable for 1 bird for short periods - E.g. trips to vet, or for quarantining a new bird
It is with a very heavy heart that these birds are going. When enquiring, please confirm if you have any prior experience with budgies (or birds generally) and who will be at home with them, as these are friendly but delicate birds, so not suitable for households with (young) children. Previous experience is greatly preferred but not a requirement.
Please be prepared to bring a box/own cage if not purchasing one

Be extra cautious with online transactions!
We encourage you to read these guidelines before buying or adopting a bird.
Carry out the research so you have the necessary knowledge of the pet bird you are getting. Since owning a pet is a big commitment, you should research about the breed fully to make sure it fits your current lifestyle and budget.
Take time to visit the advertiser's home to confirm if they are genuine. Do not settle for online communications and photos. UK Pets does not verify the authenticity of all advertisers. The advertiser should allow you to personally see the bird. If they keep on giving you excuses why you could not visit their home or the address stated in the advert is not the accurate and permanent location of the pet, consider this a red flag.
Never pay anything online through money transfer companies especially if you have not personally visited the advertiser and seen the pet, this includes deposit and delivery cost for the pet. There is also no means to recover your money if issues arise. Before closing a deal.
The advertiser should only release the birds when they are 6 - 8 weeks old or older. They should be responsible enough to know that separating the bird from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.
Sure, being a veterinarian has its perks, like spending most of the day surrounded by pets. It is a very rewarding profession, but there are frustrating issues that need to be faced. Of course, you will not hear these things from your veterinarian.
