Most parakeets are wonderful and amazing birds that people love to listen to. Unfortunately, my parakeets are anything but that. Sunny and Axel are two peas in a pod when it comes to getting in trouble. But maybe their mischievous nature is what makes me like them so much.
Anyways, Sunny & Axel, like most parakeets, are highly active and love to play around. They always tinker with their toys in their bird cage and are always making noise. They make quite a lot of noise and then make even more noise. Did I mention they make noise? Yes, parakeets make quite a lot of noise! Opening your windows when birds are around make my parakeets make even more noise as they "talk" to the outside world.
Maintaining them couldn't be easier. Clean out their cage once a week, change the food and water daily, and your feathery buddies will be happy. Minimal vet bills since they are such a hardy breed also contribute to such a low cost, making parakeets great choices for if you're on a tight budget and want a pet that's both exotic and fun.
I don't know about other parakeets, but my parakeets are always tweeting and making noise whenever the family is around. But as soon as a stranger steps in the house, they act like they're statues. I have no idea why, but it's the funniest and cutest thing.
Overall, if you want very cheap pets to look after that will last a very long time, and have them properly maintained, Parakeets will be a great addition to any sized family and home. Just remember that Parakeets are social birds and should never be alone, always keep at least two or your parakeet will not really do much of anything!
