Well silver, you can tell your mom that I, and I'm pretty sure everyone else on this forum, loves keets just as much as you do. LOL
I love the way they are so playful and SMART. They're fun to watch when they are just doing things keets do..playing, bathing, flying, quite the little acrobats. they're fun to interact with/play games with once you have earned their trust and they are SOOOO much more intelligent than some people give them credit for. They DO understand what we are saying to them...they associate words with objects and actions.
They each have their own individual personality and crazy little quirks.
AND they can talk just like the bigger parrots do
The fact that they come in such a wide array of colors is just icing on the cake. To me, color doesn't play as big a role as their personality. They're all beautiful in their own right, but yes, there are some very VERY gorgeous colors out there.
So there ya have it Mom...I LOVE budgies too
