With all due respect, the question answers itself. There are a 350 species of parrots and about 372 species of parakeets As opposed to there only being one species of dog.
Further, the individual who acquires a single parrot can be considered a pet owner or companion, our term is “pet bird keeper” Once a second parrot is introduced the aforementioned individual becomes a zookeeper.
Mary J. is concerned about her cockatiel,
I was wondering if I could ask your advice? My cockatiel has laid 9 eggs in the past two months–no mate. Do I need to be concerned enough to take her to the vet? It’s $185 a visit….thank you. She is healthy and happy and energetic as always.
Kim M. requests advice,
I have been reading your emails for quite some time. I finally need some advice.
I have a 28-year-old Blue and Gold McCaw. She has been fairly happy over the years. She was my son’s bird until he got married and didn’t take her with him. Now she has to deal with me and misses my son very much but now has resigned to the fact I have to be her person.
Barbara T. wants to know
My darling birdlings, parakeets, happen to both be female. One, Moonshadow, is approx 7 years old…a rescue.
When her partner passed last year, after the funeral, Moonbirdy was sooo lonely, depressed, inactive.
We, in mid pandemic, bought a pet shop friend for her. Of course, the pet shop attendant assured my husband Mercury was Male.
Kristy L. asks,
How can I help my budgie stop laying eggs?
We have allowed her to have two clutches and I can’t have any more babies.
Our vet wanted a depo shot which we did once with the vet’s advice and I don’t like what it did to her personality.
It’s been three months and now she has laid 2 eggs.
Mary S. is concerned,
Can prolapse in parakeets be prevented?
Most important is prevention – assure that your birds, especially breeding hens, are in good health and are receiving optimal amounts of calcium and other minerals and vitamins. Upon noting a prolapse, you can try lubricating the tissue with a water-soluble product, such as Wet Original.
