Parakeets: Latinos LOVE Parakeets. What is there not to love about them? They are cute, lovable, inexpensive, easy to care for and child friendly. I dare say that 9 out of 10 Latino households have a few parakeets in their home. Aren't they the cutest things ever? They are also REALLY annoying! Growing up my mom had many of them. I wasn't the typical child. When they'd die I'd do a victory dance and then she'd go ahead and purchase more. Nothing in the world would shut those things up, all you hear is constant chirping throughout the day. This however, doesn't seem to bother Latinos who are animal lovers and aren't hesitant to purchase a pair, preferably a male and a female one to watch them cuddle and kiss. Awww, how sweet— NOT.
