I had a parakeet that lived for 8 years - this is probably a bit longer than most that are kept in a cage, but then I think they can live for a lot longer. I'm not sure if I would have another, I didn't think at the time, but keeping her in a cage maybe that was cruel, not sure. But she was always happy... very very chirpy!! Also her coat was beautiful, such nice colours, the greens, yellows and a touch of blue. Easy to feed and clean, didn't really teach her anything, but she did sometimes walk on the table when I fed her. Was really sad when she died.
