Any parakeet owners out there?
After researching, setting up the cage, and going to four different pet stores, we bought our first parakeet..... my daughter has wanted one forever, so she saved, did chores, got good grades and earned this little guy.
She and I have been reading and learning about them..... any tips from a more experienced bird owner? What are some other K,B, and T words we can teach him? When he is ready, we will be finger/hand training him. No hurries though.
He is a little pale blue with white wings and the juvenile stripes on his forehead- blue nose band.
So far, he is just perched in one corner of his cage. We move slow and talk to him and are singing twinkle twinkle little star whenever we are in his area.
