I have been doing lots of research on parakeets because I want one extremly bad. My Dad said that I can not get one but I am trying really hard to talk him into it. Hope he says yes soon!

I owned the same parakeet from 1984-1996. His name was Felix, he was blue,and white. He never talked, but he was quite intelligent and had an adventurous life. He flew outdoors, got lost and came back. He survived a horrible injury by getting slammed between a door . He survied a long car trip from Minnesota to Massachusetts in the winter time, and finally almost got attacked by a cat. Wow what a life !!

I love my parakeet, Huckle. He is such a cutie. When my grandma bought me a mirror for him, the next few days he was swinging on his mirror like it was a swing! Also, when I turn on my stereo, he will chirp like he is singing. Parakeets are the best pets anyone can ever have. Especially for girls. A while back, he stared whistling at me. Like when I put my make-up on, he will chirp and whistle. I love parakeets. I even like cockateils. They are so cute, but I heard they are messy, mean, and louder than a parakeet. Tropical birds are the best!

Parakeets are fun, but are very hard to care for. I am 10 years old and named my Parakeet Pez, wich is short for pencil in Spanish. I named him that because he is so thin. You should name your pets discribing them.

I am 8 years old and just got my first pet, a parakeet that I named Lavender Joy, or L.J. for short. He is so cute and a sweet and friendly bird already. I love him.

My mom and I had a parakeet named AL he would say pig, beast, boopers, come here, give me, what?,give me kiss, tootie, come here, and dizzy. We lost him August 26,2003 due to my mother accidentally sitting on him without knowing he was on the love seat. We got a new one that was captive bred and he is already doing some things close to the other bird. We made a dvd disc from a camcorder tape for him to watch and he listens to it and whistles to it.

My sons and I just got a parakeet. She is a cutie. She is blue and we named her Spirit. She is already finger trained and loves to crawl on us. The funny thing is my cat is scared of her!
