I inherited a couple parakeets once and despite not thinking I needed or wanted them, I grew to really enjoy having them. They're fun for kids in particular.

Pros: personality, they each have distinct personalities and do little things they know are cute or funny. They're playful and can be affectionate and human-friendly if you get them when they are young.

Cons: Fragile, I had one that literally bit the beak off another and it died. Messy. High maintenance and will get disruptive without attention. Better to have in pairs.
