The Australian budgerigar, also known as "budgie" or English parakeet is probably the most common parakeet. Budgies are such wonderful birds that it seems every bird enthusiast has owned at least one.
Because of their small size, they are easy to keep and care for, making them a wonderful option for children or those that lack the time required to maintain a larger bird. They are a snap to clean up after, inexpensive to feed, and can easily be kept in a small condo or apartment.
Despite small size, Parakeets have big brains and personality. Many have been taught to whistle tunes and talk, and are just as intelligent as some larger bird species. With proper training and socialization, they can be a delightful companion.
