Sandy perches are not good for parrots' feet! As a matter of fact, sand or sandpaper covered perches can actually produce sores on parrot's feet. Parakeets love to chew, especially wood. They will do this to sharpen their beaks or out of boredom. Try placing wooden toys around the cage. Also, try small "foot" toys - loose wooden toys that you place on the bottom of the cage that they can pick up and throw or carry around. If the problem persists try replacing the wooden perches with sand covered hard wood perches.("Sandy Perches") These are also good for the feet, beak, and claws.

If it is really hard and aggresive, it is probably angry or it feels invaded. If it is light and cutish, it is probably affection.

It is very rare that a parakeet right from the store is going to be nice or even perch on you hand. It take a while for them to trust you. You have to prove to them that you are not going to hurt them.

Parakeets need toys, a cage, food, perch, ladder, and food and water containers.

Perch? A fish? Plural would be Perch I believe. It would be plural from the sentence it is used in. I caught a Perch. I caught a few Perch. Perch as in a resting place for a bird I believe it would be perches.

A perch could be on a perch after some sort of storm that would cause the perch to be blown from the water and into a tree or a telephone pole.

You can usually tell if your parakeet is happy because it will be singing and "dancing" (running back and forth across a perch, bobbing head, etc.). Sometimes a happy parakeet's pupils will dialate.

Birds don't really control when or where they poop - they just, as Nike would say, do it. So if they are sitting on food bowl, that's where they'll 'go.' It's not uncommon for a parakeet to perch itself on the edge of its food bowl.

The adverb form of the word "cheery" is cheerily.An example sentence for this word is: "the parakeet sung cheerily as he danced on his perch".

When they rest, most of their body heat escapes from their feet (like our heads), so by keeping one up tucked under their feathers, they are preserving body heat while being balanced on the perch.

synonyms for nibble would include: chew, nip, gnaw, or bite

No, the pike would eat the perch. Walleyes are large members of the perch family.

This is normal, it just means that you have a LUTINO parakeet or an ALBINO parakeet. All LUTINO and ALBINO parakeets have red eyes, because they have have a large absence of melanin pigment, which is completely normal. Also, if your parakeet is white it is an ALBINO parakeet, but if you parakeet is mainly yellow it would be a LUTINO parakeet!

There are certain types of perch that live in salt water, so in that case nothing would happen. However, if a fresh water perch was placed in salt water it would die. There are very few fish that can go between salt water and fresh water and perch is not one of them.

User Avatar

Some signs that your parakeet is dying is their feathers start to thin out, it seems very sleepy, and the face might even be a pinkish color. The bird also might hang out on the bottom of the cage instead of its perch. If the bird shows these signs, it should be seen by a veterinarian.
