Parakeet/Budgies come in two sizes: English budgies (10 inches long) and American budgies (7 inches long). English ones are bigger, more majestic and less active, they are more like show birds. But most budgie owners have American ones (most known as parakeets). They are active, curious birds who can make as great pets as any other small animals. And because they’re not too loud, you can even keep them if you live in an apartment.
Parakeets are extremely hardy birds, playful and affectionate, will win your heart in no time!
