A 15x15 cage or higher will be good. They also like horizontal bars to climb on and they like to perch. The cage right there would be a good cage. Back Diet Toys Training Slide 4: Diet Back Cages Toys Training Parakeets like to eat certain things. They don’t just eat seeds, they also eat fresh fruit like grapes, tomatoes, and other stuff.

Both singing and mimicking are more pronounced and much more perfected in male parakeets. Repeat the words you want your parakeets to learn over and over everyday. Soon they may pick up the words into their speech. Speaking Back Squawk! Slide 7: Let your parakeet get to know you slowly. When you change out the food and water, speak softly to your parakeet and tell them how glad you are that they are going to share your home, and then introduce them to your home and to them. Then, begin just placing your hand inside the cage - don't try to touch the parakeet, just place your hand inside and let it rest there so your parakeet can see that the hand is not a danger. Then go to the next step down - teach your parakeet to step up. Once you have your parakeet stepping up you can then do more bonding rituals like holding a piece of millet on your chest and let them fly to you and land on your chest and eat the millet. Once they come to know that you are not a threat, they will land on your head, play with your jewelry, sit on your shoulder and step up on your finger when you provide a finger and ask them to step up. Always appear sure and confident. Don't hold your finger too far away from them - they shouldn't have to step too far to get on. Never draw your finger away when they are stepping up or they will loose trust in you. Back Getting to know you Slide 8: Toys Back Parakeets need many different kinds of toys! Look for toys with bells, spinning things, anything with mirrors, swings, ladders, or paper that they can chew or shred.

They make signs to say that they are going to bite like by lifting a foot or hissing. It is possible to stop them from biting. First you need to get to know the bird.

Back Slide 15: Speak Get up close to the cockatiel and look into it’s eyes and say a word. If the cockatiel’s pupils are blinking a little, then the bird is interesting in the word. Get a CD, put the word you said on it, and make it play a lot of times. Then the bird will start to memorize it. You need to be aware of if the word is possible for the bird to say.
