I was torn between the Eastern rosella and the scarlet chested parakeet, but I ultimately choose Eastern rosella because hen scarlet chested keets are not as colorful as the cocks. Eastern rosellas are almost sexually undimorphic, which mean I still get the pretty colors as the cocks.

I choose parakeets because I was thinking of Hannah's game and it made me start to look at all the different types of parakeets, and there certainly are a lot of them.

I was surprised you said budgie Carolyn. I was expecting you to say POW as well.

I should have said specifically that I'd be a MALE budgie. They're always singing and dancing and having fun. They can talk a lot too. I choose talent and personality over looks lol. I haven't seen too many princess parakeets in real life, and the ones that I did see weren't putting on a show. It's possible that they CAN put on a good show but I've never seen them do it.

If it came down to a beauty contest the scarlet-chested parakeet would be hard to beat. OMG. The picture is from http://beautyofbirds.com/grassparakeets.htm

Rosellas are parakeets too. The picture is from http://paradise-pet.blogfa.com/cat-12.aspx

I would love either, but I read they are not good pet material. They are pretty though.
