I am very sad today, because i had my parakeet since December 1999. It's name was Merlin, and it passed away today 7-15-05. It was white with a blue star on it's belly, and black tips at the end of it's wings. We only had Merlin, so im sure it got lonely. I still dont know if Merlin was a girl or boy. All i know is that im sad and i really miss my baby birdie.

A budgie is a very good pet for anyone especially for kids. The like to have fun and they are able to be taught many thing like talking and singing and much more. I've had a budgie for 6 months and enjoy him very much.

I have a parakeet named "Benny". He is very friendly and loves to talk. but about two months ago he got out and flew away. So we made flyers and put an ad in the newspaper. then after a devastating 3 days we received a call and they said they found a parakeet. So we quickly got into the car to go get him. When we got there we were so happy that we got him back. We then took him home and we were so relieved to have him. it turns out that he went seven miles away from where we live. At first he did not talk but about a week later he was back to normal. We are so lucky to have Benny.

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.

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!
