    The only pet peeve I have with parakeets, and your great article reminded me of that, is that either you are best friends or you are nothing.
    I mean, if you get one, you need to spend a lot of time with him and you guys will become best friends.
    But if you somewhere in between with free time and you decide to get him a bird buddy, you can almost forget about being friends.
    It is so much harder to get them used to human interactions when there is more than one.
    Lovely birds in the photo!
