Whether you are a parakeet breeder or just have one parakeet, understanding its behavior can give you major headaches. Before buying a parakeet, you should inform about its health and read about the parakeet’s behavior. Otherwise, it is possible to buy a sick parakeet, and your efforts to understand your companion will be in vain. You should know that caring for parakeets takes time and understanding. Consult a book about parakeets or read various articles on the Internet, like this one.
Sometimes the parakeet may scream. This will happen when your parakeet is missing something. The cries of parrots are stressful and annoying. We need to understand your needs quickly. One of the reasons could be a lack of food. The staple food is millet, but the parakeet can eat oats and sunflower seeds. As fruits and vegetables, you can give your parakeet apple, banana, parsley, and dandelion. Another reason is that the parakeet likes to bathe. The bath cools them down, helps remove dust, and more than that encourages them.
Sometimes the parakeet stretches one leg and one wing on the same side as the leg. We can compare this movement to the human morning stretch. Therefore, the parakeet relaxes the fingers and the body.
To scare the enemy, the parakeet puffs up the feathers to look more impressive. Raise your wings and open your beak and start screaming. Another reason is to conserve body heat and warm up.
Sometimes the parakeet raises its wings when it feels too hot. If the bird yawns frequently, it means that there is not enough fresh air and the room needs to be ventilated. The parakeet can sneeze. This allows you to clear the nostrils.
Parakeets hate being left alone, being kept in small dark spaces, not getting enough affection, being scolded or hit, having unwashed cages, not getting food and water when needed. Instead, budgets love to be constantly with the owner, to be loved and to play a lot, to have many toys and to be rewarded from time to time with treats, to be on the finger or on the shoulder and to have a clean cage. .
No matter what your parakeet is doing wrong, never hit him because he can no longer trust you. On the contrary, the relationship with your partner must be strong. Birds generally do not understand that hitting, spraying, yelling are corrective methods.
A very interesting fact is that the parakeet is strongly influenced by the outside atmosphere. If the morning is gloomy and rainy, your parakeet will be quite upset and listless, if it sees the sun, it will be happy all day.
