Parakeet is a term for any one of a large number of unrelated small to medium sized species of parrot, that generally have long tail feathers. Parakeets, Budgeriers, Keets, or Budgies, breed best in groups, but are usually fine breeding in pairs. Hearing other parakeets encourages a pair to breed, which is why breeding in groups is more successful. Many different species of parakeets are often bred and sold commercially as pets.
