Budgies you wont find in the sky. They dont have the stamina to fly far, they usually just hop around, sorta jump with wings...they are a form of parrot, known as a parrakeet. There is nothing disgusting about buying and caring for a Budgie.

The are one of the oldest domesticated pets in the world. After all, do you think Christ could buy a puppie or a kitten at the market where he illustrated Intrinsic Value using the sale of birds...?

Nevermind...your unlikely to be familiar with the scripture I'm talking about anyway.

btw...I think your Pepito

i like some birds, but generally i think of them as little, hollow, crunchy things that fly around and sh*t on everything (which is true if you think about it)

my favorite bird is the loon, for the sound it makes

Don't be ridiculous. Go to Australia and I guarantee you will see flocks of budgies in the skies. Your budgie only hops around and doesn't do much because he's domesticated and in an entirely unnatural setting, which is exactly my point. Birds don't belong in people's houses, they are not domestic pets. They should be outside flying around. And I don't care what the bible says about the sale of birds.

And you called him Jens? Is that because he has a wonky eye? Or is it because he keeps falling off his perch?

I doubt you care what the Bible says about anything Blade, that will be your downfall, not mine. I take great interest in it. I love my Budgie, the ARE domesticated pets.

There is nothing wrong with Jens eyes (niether the fighter, nor the bird, just coz he has two different coloured eyes, thats just a genetic rareity) I did however see Jens the Budgie fall off his pearch. When he was getting used to the cage he missjudged the amount of pearch he had, and whilst he was creeping away from the edge of the cage, his little claw went out to grab a pearch that had ended, there was a bit of flapping, a squark, and he unceremoniously landed on the pearch below
