Where To Buy A Parakeet Near Me

Parakeet breeders are a very popular source of good pet parakeets. You will want to choose a breeder with a good reputation and a well-established business. Ask your friends or other parakeet owners for recommendations. A good breeder will let you visit their facility and see the birds in their cages. He will not hesitate to provide information to you when asked for it and most will offer it to you before you ask.

Meet Sammy, who is a green parakeet for adoption and is approximately 4 years old. He loves human companionship all day long and will not be happy unless you can spend all day with him! He is very loveable, extremely social, and if you can imagine for a parakeet, he will even play kick ball with you.

Since Parakeets naturally spend their entire life in a flock of other Parakeets is common to find Parakeets for adoption in bonded pairs. Meet Sugar and Spice, a bonded pair of brightly colored, energetic parakeets. Both are friendly and verbally responsive when talked to, but don't like being handled. They will eat millet seed from your hand through the cage bars but get excitable when you open the cage. They prefer the standard parakeet seed mix and don't seem very interested in fresh fruit or other foods. They will chirp and chatter when spoken to.

A parakeet is not the only thing that needs to be purchased. It may be necessary to also buy that parakeet a companion, food, and accessories. One also needs to know how to take care of him/her because birds have specific needs and complications just like any pet.

Even though your parakeet may get lonely, it can build an even stronger with you and other humans if it does not have a companion. Being lonely will make it happy to see you when you get home and it will want to be with you more.

Purchasing a budgie or budgerigar, also known as a parakeet, is a big commitment because they can live to be 9 to 14 years old. Because they live so long, you really need to make sure you are buying the right bird for you and your family. In order to find a good budgie, you need to assess the bird's health, personality, and happiness before your purchase. Finding a budgie that will be a long-term happy member of your family takes some diligence on your part, as well as a willingness to walk away from a bird that's just not right for you.

The shell parakeet (Melopsittacus undulatus), named for the shell-like wavy undulations on its wings, is better known in America as the pet parakeet or the Australian budgerigar or budgie. As one of the most popular, colorful and easy breeders of the entire parrot family, its whimsical personality has endeared it to the hearts of millions with its natural charm, cheerful chatter and kaleidoscopic tints, tones and pigments.

Getting two budgies or adding another bird is a smart move if you are at work all day, or away a lot and cannot interact with your budgie as much as you used to. Female parakeets are dominant in their social interactions, so base your selection of a second budgie on gender. If you own a male and its cage is small, your best option is to select another male. Male budgies get along well together; they serenade one another, and usually interact harmoniously.

Because females are more prone to territorial fighting over space, it is less advisable to keep two females together. Female parakeets bicker more among themselves, stand their own ground, and their disruptive arguing leads to squawking beak duels that disrupts everyone.

When you introduce a new bird into a flight with other birds, watch the reaction of the flock. The newcomer will immediately be tested and confronted by other birds to learn where it fits into the social hierarchy. Its social standing will determine where it is allowed to perch, and in what order it is able to eat, play with toys or find a mate.

Provide a quality parrot bird food that includes budgie-size pellets and/or a quality parakeet bird food with plenty of dark green leafy vegetables, legumes and grains, orange/red/yellow vegetables, seasonal fruit and fresh, clean drinking water each day. Offer millet spray and other treats occasionally and always keep a fresh, clean cuttlebone. The combination of healthy foods and plenty of exercise will give your budgie the potential to live as long as 10 to 15 years or even more.

Because budgies catch cold easily, any location you choose should be completely free of either hot or cold drafts, so avoid nearby heaters or air conditioners. Test the air to check for any sign of a breeze. Comfortable room temperature is ideal although temperatures above or below 68 to 72 degrees are acceptable provided budgies are gradually acclimated and the temperature remains constant without continuous fluctuations.

Taming and training parakeets is pretty easy. Parakeets become accustom to their new environment fairly rapidly. Consequently very little time is required for parakeet training, they can quickly become easy to handle. Repetition, patience and time are the keys to successful parakeet training!

Initial TrainingSpeak softly to the bird to calm it and always move slowly. Start from the floor and approach the bird from the side rather than head on. With a treat held between two fingers, coax it onto your hand. It may try to fly and you may have to repeat this several times. Once your parakeet steps on your hand, you then start having it step up from one hand to the other.If necessary, you can repeat the hand-taming lessons several times a day but for short periods of time, about 20 minutes a session. Depending on the tameness of the bird, these two steps can be instantaneous as in a hand fed baby. Or it can take several weeks or longer for an untamed bird.

Advanced TrainingRepetition and frequency are the keys here. Almost every parakeet can learn at least a few words, although they are not generally as vocal as African Greys or the Amazons.

The restocks were selling out in seconds on Etsy, the high amounts of traffic caused glitches in their system. I decided it was time to make my own website. This marks the beginning of!

For these reasons and countless others parakeets are frequently surrendered and you will easily find many in need of new homes. A rescue near me currently has upwards of 10 parakeets that need new homes.

Reading over the list of cons it might seem like I am not in support of bird rescues! Far from it, I hope my next parakeets are from a shelter or rescue. I simply want to point out all of the due diligence the rescues undertake to ensure the parakeets are not surrendered to them again and again in an infinite loop of unprepared owners.

Local or home-based breeder:Selecting your parakeet from a small breeder will guarantee you get a very young parakeet. Some home breeders hand feed the babies, and some let the parents deal with feedings but make sure the babies are introduced to humans as early as possible and are handled as frequently as is healthy for them.

If you take a day or two, you can cruise by every pet store in your vicinity and make a selection from upwards of 50 parakeets. Although you may not be able to handle them beforehand, you can observe for as long as you like and get a sense of the personality of each bird.

Although their living conditions will likely not be ideal, you can also easily ascertain whether the parakeets are kept clean and comfortable. By knowing what to look for you can also visually check to see that the parakeets are healthy.

To be fair, I also felt it was pretty magical picking out our Petsmart baby, and I want to give them a shout-out for having clean living conditions and friendly (if not particularly knowledgeable) employees. I would not trade our experience of taming Toby for anything in the world, and I think the fact that we put in so much one-on-one work has made our bond with her exceptionally strong. Although there were periods of despair along the way where it seemed like she would never trust us, the moment I realized she was excited to see me come home from work was full of unparalleled excitement and pride.

Baby parakeets need to feel comfortable in their surroundings. Let it settle in for a day or two. You can sit quietly by its cage and talk to it, offer it bits of spray millet, and just observe its behaviour. Your budgie should be eating, drinking and exploring its cage and investigating his toys before you start to work with it. 041b061a72
