Parakeet Chicks

Parakeets that have been bred for shows and exhibitions are often referred to as English Budgies or English Parakeets (see Parakeet Varieties, above). In general, these birds are on the large end of the parakeet size scale, often having emphasis on feather features such as crests or tufts. As with any animal show, judges will be looking for the most perfect versions of the various types of parakeets.

Exhibition Parakeets

Successful show birds are placid and will be used to noise, travel and all the activities that come with the show life. Any excitable, nervous or noisy bird will not thrive in the show environment and certainly won’t be scooping up and prizes.

If you want to exhibit parakeets, speak to an experienced breeder who can ensure you buy a suitable bird.

My baby parakeets are 7 days old. Growing quickly. Mom and the 2 chicks are alone in a big cage. The chicks are safe in a box where mom takes care of them. I have 2 male’s one is the papa. When can I put the 2 males back with momma and chicks

if you touch a newborn parakeet without gloves the mom will kill it.

Hi, just wondering how much time a mama budgie should be with a newly hatched baby. I made the mistake of bringing my 2 aviary budgies inside due to bad weather. When I set them and their breeding box up in a flight cage inside I realised their is a newly hatched baby in the box. Mama bird is spending majority of her time out of the box and I can hear the baby crying out but mama doesn't seem concerned. I'm worried because I have moved them she isn't tending to the baby properly. How much time should mama spend in the box with her baby?
