I've had parakeets for about 25 years (obviously, not the same ones!) and one cockatiel for the past eight years. We currently have five parakeets and one cockatiel right now. I got into birds years ago because I could not have dogs or cats. I LOVE pet birds, but they can sometimes be seen as "throwaway" pets since some of them (parakeets) are so cheap.
What would you like to know?
