An RSPCA centre in Cheshire is appealing for bird-lovers to get in touch after becoming inundated with budgies.


Stapeley Grange, in Nantwich, currently has 21 budgies at the centre – 18 of which came from the same household after their owner passed away.

Lee Stewart, manager at Stapeley Grange, said they were keen to rehome them as soon as possible. He said: “It is unusual for us to have as many budgies as we do at the moment and we’d love to see all 21 of them rehomed for the new year.

“All are in good condition and are feeding well. They would be an excellent addition to a bird-lover’s household. The only condition is that initially they would need to be rehomed indoors.”

A home visit would need to be carried out before they are rehomed. Those interested should contact
