Some people love their parakeets, but I am not one of those people. We kept ours in a cage in our kitchen, and they were incredible loud all the time! Even if we covered their cage. I have never owned any other types of birds, perhaps I am just not a bird person. If you get parakeets, I would recommend keeping them somewhere that gets less foot traffic so they're not constantly being disturbed. They were definitely happier when we had 2 birds. One of ours passed away before the other, and the surviving bird seemed much more subdued afterward.
