The Many Wonderful Birds in Texas

Pets are a lot of fun and they are good at stealing your heart. In a fairly short period of time they become your family. Parakeets are one of those pets many people do not even think about yet they make a marvelous companion. A parakeet will live up to fifteen years and they are not difficult to care for. You can tell how old a parakeet is by black bars located on their forehead. A parakeet under four months old will have bars that go all the way down to just above their beak. If there are no bars the bird is older than four months of age.
