We had a lovely parakeet for 5 years. On Sunday while the grandchildren were here, they left the door open and he flew out. We are devastated. Is there a chance he could survive? We are 5 miles outside of Philadelphia, the weather that night was rainy and chilly. Anyone have any ideas where he could have flown (lots of trees and woods) and what we could do to find him? Appreciate input. Thanks.

    Place the cage outside, higher is better. Turn on some music or any sound and have it play outside and then turn on some sort of light or spotlight by the cage. Frequently they are attracted to the sound and the light as dusk approaches. Most likely she will be fine, however, I don't know if she will come back to your home or fly in someone elses home. Many 'find' parakeets and write in. Look in local newspaper or put a small add in local paper.

Sadly I believe we now only have one baby, as only able to hear one for a few days. I do hope this survives, but Mildird has been a good mother.

    Managed to have a sneeky look in the nest, looks like there has only been one baby all the long, my mistake, could have sworn there was two, must have had two cries.

We are getting our first bird, a ringneck in a week. I have read online you can't use non stick cookware, or candles or any scent stuff around birds. Is this true? I have non stick pans and candles and reed difusers all over my house. Can I just move the bird to another room when using these things?

    It is true. Non-stick cookware was made for the space program and is toxic to birds and actually to humans and I believe the US has banned the production by 2014. It isn't the cooking so much as the fumes if you burn something or overcook or heat something. Birds are very senstive to scents, fumes. Remember they would take them into caves or tunnels to see if the air was OK to breathe. Scented candles - one scented candle in another room is probably OK but all the diffusers releasing chemicals - I sure wouldn't do it. For the bird or myself. Also, aerosoles are toxic. So the good news is you will save lots of money on cleaning products and diffusers.

I have bought a parakeet she is all white with a little blue on her stomach. I'm having trouble with her she will not eat her food or drink her water she is a very scared bird and hides under her food dish also she does not chirp like other parakeets do. I don't know what I should do about this bird. I'm just wondering if she is scared or lonely. I don't know what else to do can anyone give me some suggestions as to what is wrong with her

    Give her some time to calm down and get used to your home. She is probably very frightened with all the new sounds and smells. Let her calm down and then leave the door open to her cage so she can come out on her own. Talk to her, sing, laugh, whatever so she gets used to you. Put treats outside the cage door if you need to. Approach her slowly and then just pick her up. If you could hold her in the pet store, you can hold her at home, it will just take her getting used to sites and sounds. If you couldn't hold her in the pet store, you are going to have to tame her.

I have a pair of rose-ringed parakeet......
They are now 3 months - apprx.

The male one is a little bit weak. He can't produce a high sound.
He can't make even good grip with his claws. He looks as if he is tired.

What to do.....

    Obviously the best thing would be to find a vet. If there isn't one available then let's get the little fella warm and fed. Turn a lamp on so it shines on just a corner of the cage so he can go to a place where it is warm or cooler as he feels he needs. I would sppon feed him baby bird formula - whatever you have at a pet store there. If you don't have bird formula, then feed him baby food from a jar heated slightly with a spoon. If you don't have baby food, then mash up cooked sweet potatoe or mashed up vegetables so he can eat more and easier. He might have been weaned too quickly. He might be ill, but he just might be hungry.

    She obviously doesn't want kids. Seriously, you don't want her doing that. Next time she lays an egg - remove the egg and put a heavy egg looking object in the nest. They have fake eggs for birds but possibly a hard boiled egg would work. You don't want her to keep laying eggs. Another thought is where is she laying the eggs? She needs a nest box - whether the eggs are furtile or not. Be a lot harder to throw the eggs out that way also. Not a behavioral problem as much as a has no idea what she is doing problem.

Our parakeets were given to us and they do not fly around. We've tried to be patient and all but after the one guy actually bit my finger while I was trying to put him in his cage they don't want to go out of their cage(s). They LOVE celery and the younger ones love the leafy part while the older one loves the stalk.
Every time I reach in slowly to change their food/water they fly around like like I'm going to grab them. I do not want then to have a heart attack.

    You can get them a small flight cage where you change the food and water from the outside.
  • Jim - 2012-05-19
    I was looking at small flight cages and saw they were 24 X16 X16 and the cage we have is 18 X16 X16 and didn't want to handle the birds to change cages because of fear of them having some heart attack.
