    As naturally social birds, parakeets for sale need plenty of stimulation so as to ward off potential depression or illness. This stimulation helps them to be healthy and active. Of course, remember that parakeets may be active at different times of the day to you.

    When you first bring your pet parakeet home it will need time to adjust to its new surroundings. You will also need to allow your old parakeet (if you have one) to adjust to its new companion.

    Feed your parakeet a healthy, well-balanced diet. Most parakeets need a combination of seed, leafy green vegetables and grit to remain healthy. Make sure the vegetables are as fresh as possible. Hang them in the cage rather than putting them on the floor or in a food bowl.

    Parakeets need lots of social interaction so make sure to spend time with them every day, talking to them, feeding them treats and playing with them. Allow it some time out of its cage once it has accustomed to the house. You should buy toys for your parakeet to play with when you can’t be there – take a look at some of the toys in our product reviews.

    Get another parakeet as a companion. Parakeets are naturally social, and they crave the company of other birds. Another parakeet may help to make your bird more active.
