During childhood my family had cockatiels and while they were rewarding and could talk, they were also messy and high maintenance. As an adult, I decided to give parakeets a try. I always thought of them as silly little things. And it turns out they are, in the best way possible! I started off with an English Budgie whom I named The Boog. He's slime green, beautifully colored and a crooner. But he was lonely when I brought him home and acted very depressed and went on a hunger strike. The pet store had me bring him back for a week to cheer him up. When I went to fetch him he was like a totally different bird - so happy. I decided that he needed a friend since I was away at work much of the time. Then came Scooter. But, parakeets are like potato chips - you can't have just one. Now I've got five and they behave as in a flock. They sing so sweetly every night and are a lot of fun to watch. Especially when I put fresh vegetables in the cage. They definitely have a "pecking order."
