And you though only hamsters and gerbils were "fast reproducers!" BWahahaha!

Parakeets - budgerigar or budgie - live up to 12-15 years. So this flock will only get larger.

Did anyone else read this at the bottom of the article?

These birds are native to the area; I suspect most of the 4000 are not the progeny of the original pair. They are not budgies; but are actually a small parrot, have established feral populations in Europe and the U.S, and can live for 30 years. Polly want a visa?


What the flock.
