So, I've always wanted parakeets but didn't really ever want parakeets. Love birds, not sure about the mess and upkeep part. I do keep a bunch of reptiles, they are super easy (or I just have it down to a science now). My sister apparently decided it was time for me to finally get some, she gave me a cage for Christmas with the promise of two birds when I get all set up for them. I guess the best place for them would be my bedroom, it has the most room/space for a cage and isn't too cool or drafty. I would like them in my office/den area but there are a lot of windows, hence drafts, and it is cooler than the rest of the house (like 66-68). The geckos and tortoise are OK as they have heaters and 'draft free houses'. It's not like they would be isolated or anything, I go in there a lot during the day (two snakes in there already). Anyway, if I do this crazy thing, I'm looking for general care/training/making them happy suggestions!
