How Much Does a Parakeet Cost?

A parakeet, commonly referred to as budgies or budgerigars, is a term for any one of a large number of unrelated species of parrots.  In general, birds that can be referred to as a parakeet will have a long tail and will be much smaller than their parrot cousins such as a Cockatoo or Macaw.

Parakeets are usually found in warm regions and are typically found in large flocks.  Parakeets have a lot of energy and are very social with each other and with people.  They are mostly bred by their owners and are often sold once they multiply.
