Parakeets, or Budgies, are low maintenance, low cost, beautiful to look at and quite personable! They love fresh fruits and veggies and I found that mine especially loved organic baby spinach. They enjoyed worms as an occasional, and fatty, snack as well. Like any bird they need access to fresh water at all times and also a beak stone. The parakeets that I cared for loved to sing and be outside (in an area free of predators and where I could see them) in their cage for hours until the temperature began to drop. When I owned my parakeets I also had a dog that befriended one of the birds. He would lay next to the cage and the bird, Bogey, would perch next to him and sing! It was adorable.
