Monk parakeet for sale, these parakeets are generally quiet birds and their sweet disposition makes them exceptional pets. Besides being known as Quaker Parakeet and Monk Parakeet, they are also called Green Parakeet, Grey-breasted Parakeet, and Montevideo Parakeet. This is the only member of its species and there are 4 subspecies mostly distinguished by size and color intensity. The Quaker “Monk” Parakeets cheeks, throat, crown and lores are gray. Its upper breast is gray with light edges, giving them a scalloped appearance and the lower breast is yellowish. The back of the head, neck, rump, wings and the rest of the underparts are green, and there can be some blue outer feathering. It has a long, pointed tail with a mixture of yellow and bluish green. The female is lighter in coloring than the male. The normal green Quaker Parakeet is by far the most common, but other mutations are also available including yellow, blue, pied, and albino varieties. The young birds have a gray forehead with a green tinge. These birds grow to a length of 11-12″ (29-30 cm).

Care and Feeding of Monk parakeet for sale

Fresh food and water must be provided daily. Quaker “Monk” Parakeets eat a variety of sprouts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, and commercial pellets. They like nuts with the shells cracked, such as walnuts, pecans, and almonds. They also enjoy the same nutritional foods humans eat, including cooked chicken. Cooked beans, rice, and grains are also enjoyed, but soft foods like these will spoil in about 4 hours. An occasional millet spray is a nice treat. They do like a regular bath. A heavy crock placed on the bottom of the cage will do fine.  

Social Behaviors

In the wild, these birds live in flocks and are very social. In captivity, they have a peaceful, pleasant nature and will become very tame with attention and patience. However, if they are neglected, they can start screaming and become aggressive. They can also be very territorial about their cage. Hand-fed babies or a well trained older bird make the best pets.

Maintenance

The basic cage care includes daily cleaning of the water and food dishes. Weekly you should wash all the perches and dirty toys, and the floor should be washed about every other week. A total hosing down and disinfecting of an aviary should be done yearly, replacing anything that needs to be freshened, such as old dishes, toys, and perches.
