Parakeets: not for me!

Posted Jan 16, 2015

When I was a child, my parents bought us 3 parakeets. My brother, my sister and I each had one. I was really happy at first. I remember loving just looking at them when they were feeding and moving around their cage. I spent A LOT of time trying to train them. It used to hop on my finger... but nothing more. I wanted them to come back to me after being freed in a room. I wanted them to mimic some sounds. Nothing. I was probably too young to be a real effective trainer! I also remember them being very loud and the cage being very messy. A lot of feathers all around the cage. Again, I was probably too young to take care of a bird...!
