My parakeet experience.

My sister gifted me my parakeet when I turned 14 in June 2010. From the get go, my bird wasn't very friendly with me. Granted, I had not training experience with birds, and to be honest, I was quite fearful of birds. She eventually grew used to/tolerated being handled by my other household members and me. She was very easy to take care of. We had a birdhouse with a newspaper slot in the bottom that only needed to have the newspaper replaced about once a week. As we had other animals, we didn't let her fly around the house, so I have no comment on that. She passed about a week after we changed her to a brand of food that our vet recommended. I'm not completely sure what led to this. I don't think I'll ever own another bird, simply because they aren't my favorite animal, but owning Sheena was an okay experience.
