Parakeets

A few years back my household had an abundance of parakeets. I started with a small cage, enough to hold 2 – 4 birds comfortably, and eventually graduated to four large cages that held twenty birds each. At first, I did not mind the droppings and scattering of food debris all over the floor. However, the more birds I bread, the more it was inevitable the mess would increase. I tried different ways of maintaining the mess so that the cleaning process would not take too much time. There were many lessons learned from breeding parakeets, some lessons were fun to learn, and others were unavoidable. I eventually went from having four cages to one cage. Any parakeets born and that exceeded the cage capacity I joyfully gave away as personal gifts. It is very important that I give my parakeets away to a good home and ensure the new owners know what it takes to maintain a lovely bird habitat. Parakeets can be high maintenance and require a good amount of consistent cleaning to ensure good health for you and your parakeets. If you do not mind the constant droppings and food debris all over the ground, you might be a potentially good candidate to own birds
