I owned a blue parakeet as a child and thoroughly enjoyed her company until learning I was allergic to bird dander. Molly, my parakeet was fairly intelligent, but made somewhat of a mess in her cage that needed cleaned weekly. Feeding Molly was a cinch. I would recommend a parakeet with proper guidance and parental monitoring as a first pet for a small child.
