My parakeet, Carrot, was my favorite of all my birds. He was very friendly, outgoing and inquisitive, which was unlike our other two parakeets (one was very shy and the other was a little mean).

He enjoyed flying around the house and getting treats. He would stand on my finger and let me clean his cage without problem.

Cleaning his cage and the space around it was a bit of a hassle, but all pets require some maintenance. Based on my experience, I would say parakeets are great for someone looking for a bird as a pet.
