My new Friends.....Kiwi and Sweet Pea

We were able to give a set of parakeets a home this week.  They were given to our family by another homeschool family.  They are about 3-4 years old.  The girls name is Kiwi and the boys name is Sweet Pea.  I have really wanted birds, and dad said I could have these.

We checked out some books from the library, and this is a few things that I learned.

  • Parakeets have curved beaks that they can use to crack open seeds.
  • Parakeets should fly outside their cage about 1/2 hours each day.
  • They see very well.  Their eyes are on the sides of their heads.
  • You should always check for open windows before letting your parakeets fly around the house.
  • If you keep saying the same word over and over, a parakeet can learn it.
  • They like to eat seeds and fruits and veggies.
  • Parakeets lose their feathers once a year.
  • Parakeets like to play with toys.
