I have 7 parakeets but Im only gonna talk about 1. My third parakeet is PARADISE. He has a yellow face, dark blue tail, a bright green body and his wings lined with black. I had Paradise for maybe 2 years or so, but he is my all time favorite. But, if I count all the parakeets I ever had, I would have ten. Now I am down to 7, but out of ten Paradise is my favorite little buddy. The first time I ever took him out of the cage, he looked at me and jumped on my leg. Then climbed up my shirt and onto my shoulder. He cuddled up in my hair. He just loves to snuggle in my hair or in my shirt. After a couple of hours of playing Paradise was pooped, but we wanted to keep playing with him so we put him in a small car and he fell asleep in the back 2 seats. it was so adorable. Then we pushed the car around our room. Then we tacked up one of the barbie horses I had and put him on it. He just fell asleep on it. It was the cutest thing in the world. He was so pooped. He just fell asleep wherever we put him.

Parakeets can be extremely cheery birds if kept well. I have rescued birds that have been found in the wild and managed to tame them yet again. Have perserverance and you will have one of the most loyal pets you can have. I sometimes see my birds as more of a character and more fun to be with than even my dogs, especially my red bellied parrot.

My parakeets are so noisy they wake up my neighbors.

Just lost my Indian Ringneck (Casey)and her loss affected me more than any other pet that I have had. I had her 12 years and from day one she loved me like no other. Her personality and spirit exceeded her size. She would sway on her perch and put her little head under her wings when she saw me. I absolutely loved that bird and I am desperately trying to find another one. I have had many pets in my lifetime including birds but none have touched my heart like her. Highly recommend

I had purchased a female yellow mantle and find this bird to be absolutely prolific. She was approximately 1 year old at purchase. She used to "keek, keek" a lot..thought I would get her a mate, some how I thought she was calling for a mate and ever since I bought the male for her she has been somewhat quiet. I will always have these birds as one passes on I will acquire another. Also the female accepted the male immediately, and they mated in an active home environment. About everything the books said they would not do.....THEY DID! I also believe they are very acceptable to family life to be held and played with. The female I have was adaptable to just about everything....this may be unusual but I have had very good luck with the rosellas. They are now paired and breeding and as far as I know never fight. The female is attentive and loving both to her babies but ALSO to the MALE.

We have two parakeets, Sunny and Sky. we got these birds from dad, after his mother passed away. we built them a fairly large cage so they could fly around. They seem to be much happier. Before visiting this site we had no idea we could let them out to fly around. We will try that. We thought they may be attempting to mate. we hung branches in their cage and it looked as though they had gathered leaves in a corner of the cage, we are now building them a nest box. We did not know that they could talk, we will try to teach them. Thanks for this website!

I have a blue ringneck named Virgil. He is by far the best bird we have ever owned. He stays on his cage and likes to sit on top. We have never closed the door to his cage and he has never flown off. He loves his home. We also have never had a need to clip his wings. He has learned to say a few words and is very talented and does a few tricks. His favorite foods are fresh corn on the cob, mango, grapes, broccoli, and peanuts. I highly recomend this type of bird!!

i am from Turkey. firstly i had 1 parakeet, the sky blue kind and a female bird. i got that from a parent. next i gave the parent to a petshop because i wanted to care just for the baby. i made him talk. his name is CIKO and he whistles. 6 months passed. i thought that i am feeling bad by having a lone bird, because i felt it is a pity to be alone when i cant be with it, so i got 1 more male. now both are so cute and flying in my room. Its sure ciko is more sincere for a long time...

Hi, My name is john.I have two keets JAY AND WILL they were a birthday gift 3 years ago. I cant lie, till i discovered this page I was oblivious to these birds. Just today I discovered jay had 5 eggs that she was sitting on. To my amazement I went online found ur site and now i have a greater understanding on caring for my birds. I love them greatly. When i moved away from home, I left with my clothes on my back and my two birds Will and jay. Thank you for helping me to realize the precious pets I have.
