That depends on the species - there's a lot of parrots that are called "parakeets". Some of the most common ones include Budgies (wingspan 25 cm, size 18 cm); Ringneck parakeets (wingspan 42-48 cm, size 40-41 cm); various species of Rosellas (wingspan around 40 cm size 26-33 cm).

There are many birds that are considered parakeets. They are small to medium parrots. Most of the parakeets you'll see are actually the English Budgerigar. These birds are between 3" to 6". Interestingly, the budgie is the second best talker of all the bird species following the African Grey.

A full grown parakeet isn't very big. It will depend on whether it is male or female, but you can expect them to run from 7 to 9 inches from beak to tail.
