The most popular pet bird, by far, is a type of parakeet called the Budgerigar (parakeet). Parakeets are native to Australia and have been domestically bred since the 1800s. In the wild, the only color to occur naturally is green, but through selective breeding, a variety of beautiful colors are available. No matter what color or sex you choose, your parakeet will be an excellent student. Both males and females can be tamed and taught how to speak. With adult parakeets, you can usually recognize the male because his cere, a soft wax-like covering where the nostrils are located, is most often blue. Most females have beige or brownish ceres. Baby parakeets are sometimes difficult to sex, the cere is often a light purple and not the blue or beige color of the adult.
