Waved parakeets are the most popular of all parrot species, and were the earliest parrots to be bred and domesticated. waved parakeets arrived in Europe as early as 1840.

They are Australian parrots that fly in large flocks in the wild, always together, so it’s best not to keep waved parrots singly in the home. Although a single parrot is more comfortable for humans, as humans cannot be with them all the time (and they need interaction from early morning to late evening) it is better to keep a pair. In addition, if you buy domesticated parakeets, they will both be comfortable not only with each other but also with you.

The natural colour of the Waved Parakeet is green, but nowadays different colours have been developed – white, blue, yellow and variegated mutations. Worldwide, these parrots are the third most popular parrot after the dog and the cat.

Waved parrots are called waved because the feathers on the head of the young form a wavy pattern.

Waved parrots, which live in the wild, are known asThey are much smaller than domesticated parrots, and in the UK, waved parakeets have been developed, which are twice as large and have longer head feathers, but shorter lives.

When fed properly (not just seed mix), Waved Parakeets live for about 15 years.

Young Waved Parakeet

How do I tell the sex of a Waved Parakeet?

You can try to guess the sex by the behaviour of the parrot, males are more likely to sing, be more active, approach females and may even learn to repeat words. Although males are considered to be noisier, females can be noisy too. However, sex is more accurately determined by the colour of the wax. The wax is the part above the beak where the nostrils are located.

If the Waved Parakeet is a juvenile up to 6 months old, the wax is light purple or pink in young males and white-blue in young females.If the Waved Parakeet is an adult, the wax is blue in males and white, pink or dark brown in females. However, albino (white), lutiThe waxen of both (yellow) and monochrome parakeets remain as they were when they were young.

The main mistakes made in rearing small parakeets:

Unbalanced diet. For Wave Parakeets, millet alone is not enough to keep them healthy. Waved Parakeets that are fed on seeds alone live twice as long, so give them fruit, vegetables, pellets and sprouted seeds.Round cages. Do not buy round cages for your parakeets. Although they are very decorative, the bird feels unsafe in such a cage. Not letting them fly.

Be sure to let your parakeets fly, even though they are small, they need to fly because it is their element.Plastic perches. Wooden anvils are best for parrots. Plastic anvils are often too thin and cause wounds on the toes of parakeets.Don’t forget that parakeets need to be bathed from time to time, they love it, and bathing keeps their feathers and skin clean. Place a shallow bowl of water in the cage for bathing or spray them with a spray bottle.

Nutrition of Waved Parakeets

Waved Parakeets in the wild feed mainly on a variety of cereal crops, and are therefore best suited to the needs of MICRO parrots. These parrots need to be fed special parrot sand, which improves digestion.
