The parakeet is a very common bird native to Australia as a pet. Its other popular names are parakeet or Australian parrot. They are characterized by being easy to tame and by having a good relationship with humans. If you plan to have a parakeet or already have one, read this article to find out how to care for a parakeet.

Steps to follow:

1. The first element to take into account when raising our parrots is their home. If, for example, we are going to have a pair of specimens, we should get a cage whose minimum dimensions will be 70 cm in length, 40 in width and 50 in height. In the cage it is essential that there is a feeder, an automatic watered and a stone to sharpen the beak. Here you will find more tips on how to choose a cage for birds.

2. Once we choose the place where we are going to place the cage, we must bear in mind that it must be at a considerable height. For the hygiene of the cage, we will cover the surface with a quantity of sand about 2 centimetres thick. We will change this sand after a few days so that our parakeet lives in a healthy environment; you can also see what other actions you must take to clean the bird cage.

3. Parakeets are ideal pets because they are affectionate and playful. If you want to enjoy a playful parakeet, you must provide them with toys that you will exchange from time to time. These toys can be swing objects, small ladders, twigs, and any small objects that they might find fun. We can also make them fly freely around the house and place a coat rack made by ourselves with natural branches and where the parakeets will go to rest to rest from their flights.

4. In order for them to exercise the muscles of their legs, it is convenient to use wooden crossbars of different diameters, in order to avoid that your bird has beak and nail problems.

5. As for food, the base is millet and birdseed. This meal will be complemented with diced fruits and some vegetables, as green foods attract them a lot. You will find more information in our article on how to feed a parakeet.

6. In the same way, you should also know what the main diseases of parakeets are and be attentive to any symptoms that may indicate that your parakeet is sick.
