    Wild and talented parakeets

    I have a very wild parakeet named Jay.She is really talented and wild.She has a blue body with a white head.She has black and white wings.If I play music she begins to chirp along with the music.If I play something that has a chirping sound to it then she will chirp with it.If I am singing then Jay will chirp along with me.I think she is so talented.She likes to climb up poles and fly around.She won't let anyone hold her if she don't know you.She will chirp to you if you can chirp or if she is lonely.Jay is best pet I had!!!!!
