Parakeets make wonderful pets

Over the course of 7 years I owned 4 different parakeets. All were purchased from pet stores. After purchasing the original set up for your bird, they are fairly inexpensive to maintain. Parakeets are very relational and enjoy attention. They can be taught to mimic sounds, like to be hand fed, will sit on your shoulder, and simply enjoy their owner's attention. They do like to have their cage covered so they can sleep better without light or distractions. With adult supervision, parakeets are great pets for children who can remain calm around the bird when it is being handled.
