We were considering getting ourselves a budgie, just so we'd have a reason to buy this beautiful Zentique Wire Bird Cage Set ($113). But these cages might not look so elegant if they were covered in newspaper, tiny mirrors, and bird crap. Budgies also bite, and have a thing for squawking like fiends at four in the morning, which would go over in our house like a sack of bricks. Perhaps we'll buy a stuffed parrot instead.
