The budgerigar (scientifically known as the 'Melopaittacus undulatus') is a species of parrot that is characterised by its small body, long tail and seed based diet. Budgerigars are also commonly known as budgies, parakeets and shell parakeets. The species originates throughout the drier regions of Australia but has become a very popular house hold pet in recent years. The budgerigar has survived the harsh, dry and hot conditions of Australia for the last 5 million years! In the wild the budgies colouring is primarily green and yellow with black scalloped markings on their nape, wings and back. However due to their popularity as pets the budgie has been selectively bred to have colourings of whites, blues, greys and oranges. Budgies are popular pets due to their interesting colour morphs, their ability to mimic human voices, their wide availability, their small size and their relatively low price.

I have owned parakeets (also called budgies or keets) since I was a tiny toddler. I have photos of my pregnant-with-me-mom's parakeet (named Gandalf), so she owned parakeets even before I was born. Sometimes I've had four parakeets, sometimes just one, but in one way or another parakeets manage to wiggle their fluffy ways into my heart. This book is a compilation of my years of experience, not only with my own parakeets, but also with helping the tens of thousands of parakeet-loving visitors who come to my parakeet forum. Between the group of us we've probably experienced everything there is that could happen to a keet, good or bad. There is information on choosing a parakeet, feeding a parakeet, and full step by step instructions on hand training your parakeet. You can learn about parakeet activities, parakeet toys, and parakeet socialization. While the web is of course an awesome resource, often there are times that it's simply easier to read an organized, sequential set of instructions on an e-reader. Also, it seems that web access goes down during emergency situations! Having an ebook version of those "what to do" instructions available on your e-reader has saved many a keet owner. Think of it as part of your emergency care kit for your beloved pet. If you have any questions, always feel free to email me! I'm happy to lend a hand with keets. Enjoy!

Parakeets make delightful pets. We cage them or clip their wings to keep them where we want them. Scot McKnight contends that many, conservatives and liberals alike, attempt the same thing with the Bible. We all try to tame it. McKnight's The Blue Parakeet calls Christians to stop taming the Bible and to let it speak anew to our heart. McKnight challenges us to rethink how to read the Bible, not just to puzzle it together into some systematic belief but to see it as a Story that we're summoned to enter and to carry forward in our day.
