Rated 4 out of 5 by BirdManBrandon Can be great, with things to note
Five and a half weeks ago, I bought a green budgie. He looked mature in the sense that his head fathers were fully developed, but was not fully mature because his eyes still look all black and because his wings are mostly solid yellow. I got him at around 8 PM, and by the next morning he was out of his cage, comfortable, and I even got him to step onto my finger, all less than 24 hours after getting him. Four weeks after buying Turbo, I returned to Petsmart to get him a buddy. I picked out a younger looking bird that was noticeably smaller than Turbo, and although Ibthought he was a boy because of his whitish-blue cere, I now know it's still at a point where its color could go either way and it could be a boy or a girl. I've had him(I still think of him as a boy) for 1.5 weeks now, and he's still afraid of me. My other bird won't step up onto my finger outside of his cage without flying off to be with his friend, unless I put the younger one in his own cage and take him all the way down to the basement where they can't hear each other's chirps. I'm mostly certain that this weekend I will take him back. He has negatively affected my bond with my first bird, and I think I will trade him in for a finch. My advise: pick a mature one as your first, and if you ever want to get another then go for another mature one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goldythegoldfish12345 Wonderful bird
I really like these birds, they are very easy to tame, they are gentle and sweet and beautiful.
However, please do not relay on these reviews, please do your research. I recommend to buy them if they are a first bird, if you are getting them for a child then the parents must supervise them. If the parents do supervise, this can be a great way to teach a child to care for an animal. For better advice buy a book, you can get good information on the internet but books are written by experts and edited by experts. So overall they make good pets.

I have 2 parakeets, one is green the other is blue. They live in a big cage and they have enough space to fly around
They are really nice birds. I recommend them for beginners because they are so easy
