I argue with my sister about this all the time. I clean my 5 budgies'(common parakeet) cage, feed them, vacuum around their cage, make sure they're ok, etc all the time. My sister holds them a few times a month. The reason why I don't hold them is because they all have each other and don't really need human companionship. If there was only one or two of them, then yes I'd hold them because they're very social birds. Since they are in a small flock, they've bonded more with each other than they will with humans. Now my sister was supposed to help me with taking care of them, which she did for a while. I ended up being the sole care provider. I was mad at first, due to the deal, but now I'm not, because I got them looking beautiful. They talk to me in budgie and whistle to me and all this other stuff while I take care of them. I complain to my sister for not keeping up her end of the deal, but she says I'm wrong for not holding them. So who is right?
