What do parakeets eat?

 

What do parakeets eat? A standard parakeet diet should consist of pellets, seeds, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and treats.

While seeds and pellets should make up a big portion of their diet, they should be fed small amounts of legumes, veggies, and fruits every day.

When it comes to what seeds you can give them, they range from safflower and groat to white sunflower and canary seed. Pellets are made to mimic seeds, and they are often mixed with them so that they provide the nutrients of both grains and seeds.

Fruits have a somewhat high sugar content, which means that you should feed them to your parakeets only two or three times a week. Vegetables are to be fed every day as they are healthier.

Some safe fruits range from banana and apricot to peach, apple (without the seeds), and fresh berries. Healthy vegetables range from tomato and cucumber to carrot, zucchini, and asparagus.

 

Housing Parakeets

 

For parakeets, the length of the cage is more important than the height. Ideally cages should be about 14” long, 16” high, and 17” wide. Perches are a necessary addition to any parakeet cage. Remember to use perches that are the correct size for your parakeet’s feet. If they are too large, the bird will not be able to easily grip the perch and could be injured. Providing a variety of shapes and textures of perches will help exercise a parakeet’s feet. The placement of perches is also important. Try to strategically place them so droppings do not contaminate the food or water, and to keep the tail from hanging in the water dish. Toys such as climbing ladders, ropes, and bells can help keep your parakeet entertained.

Parakeets are very social birds and do well if kept in a colony setting. They will, however, be more difficult to hand tame since they will get their needed attention from the other birds rather than the people in the home.

Remember that birds are very sensitive to temperature. Be sure to place the cage away from windows and drafty areas.
