Parakeets love to be stroked and held and want to interact with their Pet Parents as much as possible. They require at least one hour or more of daily interaction. Smart and easily trained, these birds should be taught basic commands such as "step up" onto your hand and "step down" when putting them back into their cage. This will ensure easier handling. Their friendly, loving personalities make parakeets great companion pets. With practice, you can even teach your parakeet to say a variety of words.

Things to remember

Feed her 3-4 teaspoons per day of a pellet or seed-based, fortified parakeet diet.

Long-term companions
Before purchasing, be aware that a parakeet requires a long-term commitment of approximately 10-15 years.

Be sure to provide a cuttle bone or mineral block in your parakeet's cage at all times.

Your parakeet's cage must be large enough for her to comfortably stretch her wings, climb and play with her toys. The bigger the cage, the better. The cage should provide a secure area where she feels safe, but she should also be allowed out of the cage for socialization.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally amazed We got two fancy parakeets on 12/10 as an early Christmas gift, and they adapted very quickly. With the first few hours they were singing, playing, eating and flying around. I was able to put my hand in without them minding at all and they were interested in our talking and whistles. Today 12/11 I was able to get them on my finger. They either weren't there long or petsmart is very good at keeping them social. Very Happy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So perfect! We bought a Fancy Parakeet for my son, Isabella is gorgeous! She's grey, white and black. She allowed us to hold her and stays on our finger the first day, she eats great, plays and is very active. Thank You so much for giving my son a lifetime friend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWSOME! A couple of days ago, i bought an albino budgie! At first, he was a little shy, but just one day after i purchased him, he was a confident and playful little bird! I could not have asked for a better bird. He is amazing, and way better than any other bird i have had in the past. Birds are my passion, and i have hight standards for birds, but most of the bird sold at petsmart are way past my expectations! I hope that anybody wanting to buy a bird, buys a budgie because although they do require fresh food and water daily, they are very low maintenance, and are very friends if trained properly. I hope this review is of some help to anybody that may want to purchase a parakeet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice and sweet! I didn't even have to put any effort in taming him. I bought him tamed! He flies and jumps to my shoulder and loves to sit on my finger. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our new pets! I bought my white and grey girl (Moana) a little over a week ago along with a blue boy (Maui) and they are just the cutest little things. They are my first birds and my husband's 4th and 5th and he says they are the tamest ones he's ever had. Moana sat on our fingers the day after we brought her home and, while Maui is a little more skittish, he has made major progress in the short amount of time we've had him. They adjusted very quickly to our crazy household and aren't intimidated by our other pets or our family coming and going. They are little messy, which is to be expected of course, but they are overall just great pets to have and I would recommend them to anyone looking into owning a bird. It has been such a wonderful experience for me and I feel very lucky that I got such a great experience with my first birds. I am sold for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! So i've recently got one of these parakeets so my green one wouldn't feel lonely. At first it was shy but I was suprised how I was able to pet it after only having it for 1 day! It's very calm but still shy around its new partner. It's gender seems to be female but it's too young to tell yet. She doesn't seem to chirp that much but that could be because it's getting used to the area and other parakeets that are nearby. Although she does love the mirror in the cage! I don't mind the price at all! I'm most likely ending up buying a pair in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from grate for a first time pet! Easy to train. Learns better if it's young, my parakeets a great companion! You would need it's wings clipped, they try to get out every chance they have! They learn easy commands such as step up and step down, head bang and more! ha ha ha!..... there great first pets! If you were going to get a pet I would recommend a parakeet! They're easy to clean up, they like to talk and chirp. They're fun companions! fyi You don't need to lock up there cage because they won't typically get out of their cage.

I have a few questions.. Number one is how old are the parakeets at the store (Or does their age very?)? Another question I have is what food are they currently eating, can I change their food right away or do I have to wean them to their new food? Thanks

Asked by: Anessa
I suggest weaning, just like u would a dog or cat, and it varies.

Yes. You can tell the difference on a male parakeet and female by the male having a blue or purple fleshy part above the beak (nostril) and the females having beige, tan or white nostril
