    I just have a question regarding budgies/parakeets in
    general and just how hardy they are - And what you guys
    think of this situation...
    The people across the street from us have two budgies,
    these little birdies are outside all the time. I mean -
    they are out when I get up and they are out when I am
    getting ready for bed at 9-10 p.m. Rain or Shine, Hot or
    exceptionally cool.
    We are in California where of course weather is pretty much
    ideal most of the time. However - I feel bad for these
    little ones being out all the time in the extreme heat, and
    cooler/cold evening temps. They are never covered up -
    they hang from a hook on the front porch about 5 or so feet
    up from the ground.
    Am I being a picky neighbor or are these people being
    incondsiderate of these little guys in the disregard for
    them?? I have never seen anyone pay any attention to the
    birds and I am not sure that they even take them in at
    night.
    I have often considered calling animal control to report
    them, but talk myself out of it because I don't know just
    how hardy these little ones are and maybe in aviaries they
    are outside all the time??
    Anybody have anything to say or comments as to if you think
    this is inappropriate pet care?? Should I report them or
    mind my own business??
    I personally have two conures, 1 sun, 1 nanday and believe
    me, I know they are hardy, but would never expose them to
    the elements/situations etc. as these little guys across
    the street are.
    Thanks of your input !! :)
