Meet Nigel

Hi, my name is Nigel! Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Curious, chatty, a little undersocialized/does not like being handled
-Lifespan: 5 - 10 years
-Can Live With Kids: Yes, but an adult must be my primary caregiver. I am not super social and would not make a good pet for a child.
-Experienced Bird Home: Not required, but we strongly recommend doing plenty of research if I'm going to be your first parakeet
-Can Live With Other Birds: Yes, parakeets are naturally flock birds! Will need a gradual introduction to ensure everyone gets along
-Additional Information: Nigel came into WHS with some mites, he has received two treatments, however this may be something to talk to your vet about especially if his skin begins to appear flaky or he looses an abnormal amount of feathers. Nigel will need a nice roomy cage with different levels and perches as well as toys, swings and a cuttlebone to keep his beak trimmed. He will also need fresh bird seed daily, but be careful not to leave a bowl full of empty seeds! Parakeet favorite fruit treats include: apples, pears, melon, kiwi, berries, grapes and oranges. Parakeets are very social and love to live with a companion. If they are the only one in the cage, they must be handled daily without fail. Parakeets are capable of picking up speech, becoming finger trained and so much more!
