Jessica,

Tiki looks very cute with his "bird friend".
However, please be aware that budgies can become obsessed with toys that look like budgies - just the same as they do with mirrors.

Most budgies with "bird-look" toys will never talk and many become aggressive and territorial.
This is something you'll want to keep in mind.

Thanks Deborah. Yes I was very well aware of this before getting the toy for him, and was hesitant because of those very reasons. Many months later after having it though, it does not appear to affect him in terms of him being overly attached or agressive (I only have the toy on his playgym and never in the cage with him, so he's not with it 24/7).

I have also not had issues with him speaking. While he will actually mimic the sounds the bird toy makes (lol), he also speaks other human phrases like "I love you" and "Whatcha doin?"

Thanks for that clarification, Jessica.

Tiki certainly looks adorable in the picture.
