Did you know that a parakeet is a parrot? Their correct name is Budgerigar but we also call them a budgie for short. These guys are very smart. The males can be very good talkers and can say long sentences and phrases. The parakeet family is huge with many kinds of parakeets from small to large.

Parrots Feet

Did you know that your birds feet tells you if your bird is a parrot or not? All parrots feet look the same. They have 2 toes forward and 2 toes back. Outer 2 toes are longer than the inner toes. This makes them to be able to perch easily, use them as hands in climbing and holding food and toys.  Canaries & Finches have 3 toes forward and one toe back.

This is a pair of eclectus parrots. Can you guess which one is male? If you guessed the red & blue one you are wrong. This is the only species that I know of that the female has prettier colors than the male. For years they thought these two birds were two different kinds of birds because they look so different. 

Veterinaries

After spending a lot of time with your bird, you will learn his habits and what is normal for him. If your bird starts sleeping more than usual, sitting fluffed up or his poop changes, you should find a vet fairly soon. I rely a lot on my instinct. If your instinct says he is not acting quite right and you are wondering if you should take him to a vet, it is better to be safe than sorry.  Depending on what it is, I may watch them for a day or two but sometimes if you wait it might be too late. In the wild they have to hide their sickness or they will be attacked by other birds or animals. Believe me when I say birds can hide their sickness really well. Don't take chances if you think your bird might be sick - get him to a vet.

Sometime people panic when their bird breaks a blood feather, but it usually clots on its own. If it doesn't, you can put flour or corn starch on it to help it clot. It is important to note that you should NEVER USE QUICK STOP! It is poisonous and birds can accidentally eat it when they preen their feathers. Although the Quick Stop bottle says it is safe, avian vets will tell you to only use it on the toe nails to stop bleeding caused by a nail trim. If there is a cut on the skin, only use flour or corn starch. Quick Stop can kill the tissue and make the situation worse.
