Acquired: Pet store
Posted Aug 19, 2014
For my birthday as a child I received a blue parakeet for my birthday. The bird was lovely--quiet, calm, and hopped around my room. The bird was not too messy, and ate what it was fed. Very mild-mannered pet for a child, and not too noisy. Unfortunately, this bird died a very early death because my brother put cotton balls in its cage hoping it would make a nest. Please be aware not to put anything strange in the cage, because if the animal is not prepared to understand things (coming from a pet store it had no experience in nature, of course) and therefore tried to eat the cotton.
