Large numbers of Macaws have been exported to the United States and Europe where they have been kept as pets since the beginning of the 20tth century. Several Macaw species were popular in the early 1900's, but because these birds were generally sold singly, and difficult to sex, breeding was not an early priority. This period also saw interest in large parrots fluctuate up and down with turns in national events. Parrot keeping was affected both by the two world wars, as well as several periods of bird disease outbreaks. After World War II, with inexpensive air transportation, importation rose. Keeping large parrots again become highly favored. Parrots of all types arrived in abundance into the United States, spurring aviculture and captive breeding. Today bird importation is greatly restricted, but many species are successfully captive bred and Macaws are readily available.

Parakeets have all the great qualities of the larger parrots; they are active, intelligent, very social, and have the ability to talk. But they have a few unique characteristics of their own. Because they are smaller parrots, they require less space and are generally less expensive than large parrots. Depending on size, in a good environment parakeets can live up to 10 years for a smaller bird, with a lifespan of 25 years or more for the larger species. Parakeets are very social, active, and outgoing birds. They adapt well to captivity and will adjust easily to their cage or aviary. They are intelligent little birds and are generally easy to tame. They will bond to their keepers, and may soon begin to mimic their sounds. They are relatively good at learning to talk and adept at learning tricks. These parrots enjoy interaction with people, and just like human companionship in general. They can mix very successfully with children once they get used to the child. The same is true for other family pets; they can do very well, but be sure to use caution until you are certain they will get along. Parakeets also enjoy the companionship of other birds, and do best when kept in pairs or groups. A single bird can become restless or distressed without companionship, and may start demonstrating undesirable behaviors like feather plucking or become depressed. In the wild, parakeets live in colonies, but form monogamous pairs. Most parakeets are fairly easy to breed in captivity, and many can be sexed by sight. Once a pair is harmonious, many types of parakeet will bond with their mate for life. Top 7 Best Types of Bird Species to Have as Pets in Georgia
