Ok! Back to breeding parakeets I was carried away… breeding parakeets for beginners is just a piece of cake to you (Beginners) but commitment and responsibilities are one of the requirements in breeding or keeping parakeets.

I am very sure that this is all natural to them but suddenly I found out that she has a foot disease or fungal infection. I rushed to a near veterinarian after she been checked up and diagnose her disease the veterinarian gave me a prescription and I went to the nearest pharmacy. After that we go home and treated my parakeets after one day she seems alright and having a signs of activeness. Thanks for the veterinarian and also the medicines.

Information About Parakeets

>> Sunday, August 2, 2009


The Beak is an outer anatomical formation of Parakeets. The Beak is used for eating and for grooming, manipulating objects, killing prey, probing for food, courtship and feeding young. Used for pecking, grooming and for eating food; A related formation forming the jaws. The Beak is hard projection on the front of the bird’s mouth. A pointed structure or formation. The Beak is a rigid structure or formation in front of the face of the bird.

The Cere is a fleshy, waxy covering at the base of the upper beak of some birds. The cere (from the Latin cera: wax) or operculum is a soft, fleshy bulge found on the beaks of certain birds. The Cere is a fleshy area above the beak where the nostrils of most birds are located. The cere is a wax like membrane at the base of the upper beak in certain birds, such as parrots, budgies, parakeets and lorikeets through which the nostrils open. In the case of Parakeets, you can determine the Gender of Your Parakeets by looking up the Cere.

The nostril is the nasal cavity opens into the upper jaw. The paired opening in the nose where air passes is called Nostrils. As in humans, birds have paired external openings to their respiratory systems known as nostrils (or nares). Nostril is either of the two orifices to be found on the nose (or on the beak of a bird); it is used as a passage for air and other gases to travel the nasal passages. A nostril (or naris, pl. nares) is one of the two channels of the nose, from the point where they bifurcate to the external opening.

The part of the face above the eyes is called Forehead.

Eyes are organs that detect light, and send signals along the optic nerve to the visual and other areas of the brain. Complex optical systems with resolving power have come in ten fundamentally different forms, and 96% of animal species possess a complex optical system. In Parakeets they can distinguish if they are young or mature.

The ear is the organ that detects sound. It not only acts as a receiver for sound, but plays a major role in the sense of balance and body position. The ear is the sense organ for hearing and equilibrium.

The back side of the neck is called Nape. A bird's nape consists of the feathers on the back of its neck, usually extending from its shoulders to the back of its skull.

The part of the body between the neck and legs on the opposite side to the stomach and chest is called back.

In the variety of the lower back Parakeets have a so called uropygial gland or preening gland. This gland supplies the oily stuff were the birds need for protecting their plumage against dust and water. While preening, budgies apply this stuff to every feather nearly each day.In order to be able to survive in their natural habitat, Parakeets and most other birds need a water rejecting plumage. During preening, they nibble on their uropygial gland, get some oil into their beaks and then put it on the feathers with the help of their tongues.

An opening through which gases, especially air, can pass; A hole for the escape of gas or air is called vent. Parakeets possess a single hole where the rests of the digested foodstuff and the urine come out. It is also this part of their body that is highly important in reproduction. Male budgies emit their sperm through the cloaca, female ones receive it through theirs, and later on they lay their eggs through the vent. The crissum is the part around the cloacal opening. One can find it in front of the undertail coverts.

A leg is a limb on a living thing's body that supports the rest of the birds above the ground between the ankle and the hip and is used for.

Breast is the lower part of the avian body between the throat and the belly. Birds that are overweighed can be recognized by their big breast. It is almost impossible to feel their sternum which is completely covered by adipose tissue.

A crop (or croup) is a thin-walled expanded portion of the alimentary tract used for the storage of food prior to digestion that is found in many animals, including gastropods, earthworms, leeches, insects, and birds. Besides the stomach, the digestive system of budgies includes an additional component that is characteristic for birds. It is a bag-like object at the back of the esophagus. Since budgies have no teeth, their food arrives as a whole (grains and seeds) or in rough pieces (fresh food such as vegetables or fruit) in the crop. The food is pre-digested and stored there. It is very important in breeding parakeets especially when they have chicks.

The passage to the stomach and lungs; in the front part of the neck below the chin and above the collarbone in anatomy, the throat is the anterior part of the neck, in front of the vertebral column. It consists of the pharynx and larynx. An important feature of the throat is the epiglottis, a flap which separates the esophagus from the trachea and prevents inhalation of food or drink.
