Facts about Winter

  • Breed: Budgie
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 848694
Brazil, Winter, and Snowflake are three little parakeets looking for their forever home. They are bonded and need to go home together. They are a little skittish but that is typical for parakeets; with time and patience they should warm up.

Temperament: Parakeets frequently use their voice to sing, whistle and chatter. They need to be interacted with daily to maintain sociability. Parakeets are delicate--Please show children how to handle gently.

Diet: High quality parakeet pellet/seed mix, such as Lafebers, Zupreem, or Pretty Bird. Small amounts of veggies/fruits and fresh water daily. Millet spray makes a great treat.

Habitat: Provide a large square cage with a variety of different sizes and surfaces. Place perches at multiple levels. Parakeets also LOVE swings. Clean cages once per week to prevent illness and disease. Recommend black and white newspaper at the bottom to catch droppings and change daily.

Mouth/Teeth: Beaks are generally maintained if a bird has access to wooden perches or mineral blocks.

Skin/Coat: Flight feathers have not been trimmed. Feather trimming should be done every 6-8 weeks by a vet to prevent escape and injury. Offer a shallow dish of water for bathing, or gently mist with water.

Additional Info: Please provide plenty of toys for play and stimulation (Parakeets LOVE mirrors!), and rotate on a regular basis. Be sure to bird proof your home, such as covering exposed wires, keeping windows shut and toilet seats down. Never use aerosols, scented candles or perfumes near your bird. Do not take your bird into the kitchen while cooking, Teflon fumes can be fatal. Parakeets can live up to 12 years! Please be sure that you have the time patience and love to make a lifetime commitment to your bird.

Exam: Recommend finding and avian vet in your area in case of emergencies and for routine care. Recommend purchasing books and magazines on bird care. ****DO NOT ENCOURAGE BREEDING.***** If an egg is laid take it away.
