    Budgie books

    Hello Everyone, I'm new to this forum and new to budgie ownership (not sure who owns who at this point). I've had birds in the past but not Parakeets/Budgies.
    I would like as many opinions as possible about what is the single most comprehensive book about Budgies and Budgie care on the market.
    I imagine there will be differing opinions, but the books I have seen so far are little more than basic pamphlets. Any help
    will be appreciated. Ben
    P.S. I see I should have posted this under Budgies. Can anyone tell me how to move it?

    Hi, and welcome to the community. Congrats on bringing your budgie or budgies into your home. If you are from the USA, either visit Walmart, or go on line to their website by downloading their app, and look for this book.....Parakeets for Dummies! Cost is $8.87. Very good price point for an excellent book. It will be, in my view, the only book you will need. Parakeets and budgies are the same species.

    Parakeets for Dummies is a very good choice for a book about Budgies. Good price also. Regular price new about 20 dollars plus sales tax. Dummie series has great books on dogs also.

    I have the Cockatiels for Dummies. It's a great reference book. It it's good reference for cockatiels, than it would have to be a great reference book for budgies too

    Thank you for the responses. I bought the Parakeets for Dummies, it seems fairly complete. Another good book is The Complete Budgerigar by Dr. Matthew Vriends, out of print but still available.
