Parakeets

The Parakeets are considered the littlest member of the parrot family, and therefore the word "Parakeet" means long tail. They're small to medium-sized parrots with long, tapered tail feathers instead of the larger parrots with stockier bodies and square tails. Their small size, bright colors, and cheerful disposition make them perfect pets. It's calming to concentrate on their quiet chattering and chirping. Some parakeets even learn to speak.
