Do Budgies Make Good Borbs?

The Budgie Community was recently graced with the cutest photo of a snoozing budgie, courtesy of u/snurph on Reddit. It was so heart-meltingly adorable that I couldn’t resist sketching it. To my delight, another Redditor joined in, captivated by the little fluffball’s charm.

Do Budgies Make Good BORBS?

“Note that parrots and budgies rarely make good borbs”


Budgerigars, commonly known as budgies, undeniably excel as companions. Their vibrant personalities, tiny stature, and playful antics make them a delight to have around. Yet, the ‘borb’ status seems to be a matter of debate, as highlighted in the r/Borbs community. A lot of budgies are adorable little floofs, but don’t quite meet the “borb” status.

On the Other Hand…

But when Budgies Borb, they BORB!

While not as common as in other birds, certain Budgies make adorable borbs! Their petite frames, whether nestled in snug corners or dozing in charming bundles, capture the very essence of spherical cuteness—a rare but delightful sight among these feathered companions!

In Summary…

So, do budgies make good borbs? The answer, it seems, lies in the eye of the beholder. Budgies undoubtedly possess an irresistible allure and bring immeasurable joy to those who welcome them into their homes. Whether they fit the canonical borb image might spark a delightful debate among bird enthusiasts.

In the end, it’s not just about the designation of ‘borb.’ It’s about cherishing the unique personalities and endearing quirks of these feathered friends, regardless of where they fall on the borb spectrum.
