Hey, We have 2 parakeets. One is green, and the other one is blue and white. We do not keep them in a cage becase it makes them aggravated to be in the cage all the time. So my dad got a branch for them. They both sleep and play on the branch. Their feathers are fully grown so they can fly around the house. we also put a mirror by the branch so they are always looking at their reflection and kissing it. IT IS SO FUNNY! Well you do have to be careful with them because if they know how to fly they would want to go. My mom just got a *cockatiel* and we tried to see if like they could live together, but the parakeets are so scared because it is like three times the size of them. We will try again later to see if they get better their relationship. If it does we will come back and tell you about it.

Thames pet shop has sold us a bird we named Sunshine. He eats out of your hand is not at all aggressive, drinks when offered water. Preens our hair sits happily on your finger, shoulder arm, flys short distances from one person to another. He is more out of the cage than in and has so far been watched very carefully so he doesn't bite the furniture. We are totally in love with our new bird. Thanks for sharing your stories too they are interesting.

I grew up having parakeets around. My husband had never had one, so we got one. He named her Birdie. She is albino, we think. She's all white with the pink eyes. She's adorable. A bit flighty, but he's learning to take it slow with her. She greets the morning everyday with songs and really likes it when he talks to her. We haven't allowed her to fly yet as we just got her a couple of days ago. She's very loving and will already sit on either our wrists or fingers! I'm really happy that she's not mean or overly scared. My dad had one that didn't like my mom or my brother. He'd sit on either my dad's finger or mine. Another that we had would play hide and seek with my brother and I when I was growing up.

My budgies are the sweetest in the world! One is blue, white and black. The other is completely yellow and very small. Her type is a dark-eyed clearwing so they don't grow big at all. She is always pulling on the elastic I put in their cage. the blue one is also a female who is very dominent.

I have had my budgie for about a year. Her name is Banana because she is yellow and black. I love her so much. When I take her out she will sit on my shoulder like she is right now. banana is learning to talk and she sings all the time. My budgie is a very good friend because she listens and doesn't talk back at me. When she is in her cage, she dances to the music on the TV. She bobs her head up and down and jumps all around her cage and will start singing. I love my Banana.:)

Last year for my fiveteenth birthday, a got a female colbalt budgie. Her name is Delilah, which I named her after the radio talk show host on a certain light rock station. I was sad when both Huckle and Clarissa died last year. The cause of death was unknown, even though I think it might have been from natural causes. Anyway, my dad tought little Delilah a new noise. She kinda sounds like a pigeon when she chirps. The other day I was training her how to talk, and when I left the room, it sounded like she said, "Don't leave me." Parakeets are the coolest!

Hi, I'm from Australia and we found our Alexandrine. Actually he found us. He walked (didn't fly) into my wifes work one day and started talking. When it became her turn to take him home for the weekend we both fell in love with him. We placed posters at the local shops, city newspapers, etc about a missing parrot (we didn't know what he was). No body collected him so he was ours. 9 months or so later he grew his ring, and we've taught him a lot.
He gives kisses when asked, can say a lot of stuff. Has a diet coke addiction (doesn't like normal coke), eats breakfast lunch and dinner with us (I work from home).
He goes through toys and ladders like there is no tomorrow. We've even made him a stainless steel ladder because he was eating through two a month. We've since placed a nice softwood we found in the bush in his cage.
The only weird thing is, he lets almost every female pat him, he actually loves it, but never lets me or any male touch anything but his beak. I guess he must have been mistreaded by a male owner previously.
We absolutely love him, he is a part of the family.
