I had several of these parakeets growing up but the one I remember the best is Rockin' Robin. He was green.
Rockin’ Robin was mostly just fun to look at. We couldn’t let him out of his cage because he would fly around the room, we couldn’t stick our fingers in the cage or else he would snap at us (unless we were feeding him) and at night we put a blanket over the cage because he was so talkative. When I think about it I have no idea why my older sister and I loved him so much – we just did. It was probably something about decorating the bird cage with stickers of Pegasus and Lisa Frank animations. Or maybe it was the fact that Rockin’ Robin was an inside pet – we were never really allowed to have pets indoors.
