Interaction & Behavior
In the wild, parakeets dwell in big groups and are highly gregarious birds. Parakeets, as a result, require a lot of social engagement with their owner or a partner in order to stay happy and healthy. If you want to train your parakeet to be friendly to humans, we recommend starting with just one bird. When housed in pairs or groups, parakeets are the most active. To avoid harm, however, great attention should be given before any two birds are placed together.
If exposed to a variety of words and sounds on a regular basis, parakeets are one of the best talkers in the avian world. You can use a range of training methods to assist your bird in learning to talk, including digital speech recorders (Wordy Birdy) and CDs. However, your voice is your most effective training instrument. Simply by conversing with your bird regularly, you can teach it to speak. Please remember that while many birds choose to communicate, the decision to learn is entirely up to the bird – not every bird communicates, and there are no guarantees.
Parakeets are active birds who require a cage that is at least 18 square feet in size “18” x 18″ x 18″. The bigger the cage, the more comfortable the bird will be. Because hookbills like to climb, a proper cage should include horizontal bars on at least two sides. Climbing is made easier with horizontal bars. Bar spacing should not exceed 1/2 inch “in order to avoid harm.
