The parakeet is great for those who are looking for a caged pet. Though they are not so good with children they do give hours of entertainment for an adult. My home was filled with several other pets and I must admit that the parakeet was the messiest pet I owned. Tip: do not hang a bird cage close to a wall and make sure you have something under the cage bigger then it is to catch the droppings and feathers that they love to fling. Covering the cage at night will also help your birds internal sleep clock.
