many variations of their breed as there are varieties

Parakeets are one of America’s most popular pet

Alexandrine ring-necked, Indian and African ring-necked,
Rosellas and Scarlet Chested. Turquoisine and Eleganane
are types of Grass Parakeets. Their small size, bright
colors, and cheerful disposition make them perfect pets.

chirping. Some parakeets even learn to talk.
Parakeets should have
a large variety of grain and millet seeds. They need
fresh water, and their water dish cleaned, everyday. Honey
sticks are another good treat. Favorites include broccoli,
leaves of flowering kale, shredded carrots, peas, corn,
slices of apple or pear, and grapes cut in half. Trained
parakeets are absolute dolls in the house.
Untrained ones, however, can cause a lot of embarrassment.
