I just got two parakeets from my aunt because they work alot and wont be able to take care of them. Ones a boy and the others a girl. they are sooo cute!!! but around the 2nd, 3rd day after we got them i noticed the boy was acting strange. I told my mom and stuff but no one believed me, but now that I've read the last comment I think that he might have a thyroid condition!! Hes been shivering, ruffled, and hes acting as though hes coughing up a hair ball! I'm very worried and I hope hes OK so as soon as my mom and dad come home (cuz I just found out whats wrong) I have to tell them and see if we could find an iodine supplement or some kinda fruit or something that the bird will eat that contains iodine... I'm so worried and sad, I've only had them for a week and one might die...

"i like the prukts", writes my son Amory. Our yellow parakeet Goldie flew into my apartment. Then we got Azul so now they are a lovely pair. We love them very much.

I have two budgies named Citrus(the green one) and Splash(the blue one). I love my budgies a lot. Splash gets hurt a lot when we take him out of the cage. An example of this is when he flew into the kithchen and landed in a pot of hot spaghetti! One of his legs got burned and scarred and we had to put him on special medication. Advice: Don't take your budgies out when you are cooking!

I agree parakeets are very cute and worth it. I have 3 parakeets. the first one i got is a year old, his name is rocket. i had him for a year and realized that she needed a friend. so i go buy a baby one and put them next to each other in different cages to see if they get along. 3hrs go by and we put them in the same cage. rocket starts pecking the bird and annoying him. we go to the store and tell them what happened. we put them in separate cages and got another bird for the baby. they are doing fine. the one year old is named rocket and the babys are named indigo and snowy.

I have two birds and they both must be boys b/c their beaks are blue,
but they wierd thing is, they feed eachother and play around with eachother. When we got our green bird( Neon ) we thought he was a she,
but i guess not. Weve had our blue bird ( Blue-bell ) for a while and we thought he needed a friend, but i guess we just didn't get the right bird.

I have a blue female ringneck parakeet, I have owned her for six years. I work for a petshop and bonded with her the day she came in.. I have had several types of birds, but she is a favorite..Only one thing, she hates everyone but me!LOL I am the only one who can handle and feed her, she doesn't talk.........but she is very vocal with sounds....I think this is a great beginner small parrot.....Be prepared they do have a loud scream!But I wouldn't give her up for the world =)

I have Parakeets named Scotty and Skye. You can tell if they`re lonley because Skye (a girl) will whistle high pitched. Scotty (a boy) will whistle low pitched if he wants to rest.

I have 2 Alexs, they have more of a stand offish personality than other parrots (ie not always as cuddly) but by far more personality and individuality. They LOVE toys and things to chew on, I have had to use branches for perches as they love to chew through them (bit cheaper) and they love the McDonalds toys (so long as no small moving parts etc).
Excellent bird - splendid colours as well. though a lot of photos miss it their feathers have a nice silvery shine when the light hits it. They are very smart and have been known to be compared with African Greys on their abilities on several occasions. I think they are very much the underestimated parrot when it comes to abilities.
