Parakeet Information

Parakeet Information   by Nancy Richards

Authentic parakeet information is numero uno for anyone who decides to keep parakeets as pets in the house. Wrong or insufficient parakeet information can lead to loss of peace of mind to unhealthy and sick parakeets in your house. You wouldn't want anything of the kind in your life, isn't it? Prevention is always better than cure. Here are some basic parakeet information for all you parakeet lovers.

'Parakeets' means "small parrots". Parakeets have as many variations of their breed as there are varieties of their color. Parakeets come in a large variety of colors including pastel blues, yellows, dark greens, violets, solid whites and almost limitless combinations of the same.

Parakeets include Alexandrine ring-necked, Indian and African ring-necked, Rosellas and Scarlet Chested varieties. Turquoisine and Eleganane are types of Grass Parakeets. Their small size, bright colors, and cheerful disposition make them perfect pets. It is calming to listen to their quiet chattering and chirping. Some parakeets even learn to talk.

Keeping parakeets with other species of parrots is a form of punishment. It is known as solitary keeping. This can lead to communication problems and other related parakeet behavior problems. Turning their heads all around and burying them on their backs and resting on one leg are not to be diagnosed as parakeet behavior problems at all.

Parakeet care is the most important step in keeping parakeets as pets. Remember their immune systems can be touchy. This means that at the first sign of illness, you should contact your veterinarian immediately. A constant monitoring of their diet, regular showering and grooming, cleaning of cages can help you avoid frequent vet visits.

Parakeet health includes a healthy diet and plenty of fresh water. Foods that are safe are peas, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, pineapples, apples, banana. You should change the water everyday.

Parakeet illnesses are the usual tag-alongs when you decide to get a parakeet for a pet. Usually, there are no documented symptoms. However, you can detect parakeet illnesses from ruffled plumage, resting often with its head tucked under the wing or rump, not eating, discharge from the nostrils or mouth and cloudy eyes.

I have two male parakeets in one cage and they are always bobbing their heads up and down. What are they trying to say to each other? Is this a mating thing? Also is it better to have one of each sex in a cage or does it not matter. " Thanks " REPLY to this Comment
