Bijou, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bijou
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green & Yellow Budgie
Home: Chesapeake, Virginia, USA
   This is Mon Petit Bijou (French for my little Jewel), we call him Bijou (pronounced Bee-zhoo). Bijou is the best little budgie in the whole world. He is smart, very sweet, and loves attention. We got him from a local pet store when he was only eight weeks old. He was "tamed" and willing to sit on our hand in seven weeks. He loves to eat treats out of our hands... his favorite is millet, but he also loves fresh broccoli and carrots. He doesn't like any fruit so far except for fresh peaches. He loves to get out of his cage. He flies around a little bit, but mostly just enjoys playing on top of his cage with his cage top toys. He is very adaptable and takes right to new things. We recently went on vacation for a week, and he took his first car ride since leaving the pet store to stay with "Grandma" while we were away. Last weekend he got a new, bigger cage. He has accepted everything happily and is more responsive and affectionate toward us than ever. He loves to sing and chirp, and rarely, if ever, makes a fuss about anything. That's what makes him so special. He really is the best little bird in the world!
