Parakeet vs bantam Ameraucana

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have experience with both who could tell me what they're temperamental differences are once they have imprinted? (Trying to find a way to explain it to my daughter and realized I didn't really know.)

 

I really am sane, too, in case you're wondering. LOL

in chickens they are precocial meaning they are in an advanced state where they hatch with down feathers eyes open and usually able to walk within a few hours while a parakeet is altricial ( someone correct me if im wrong)  which hatches completely bald with eyes  closed and unable to see let alone walk for  many days  i hope this helps and let me know if there was anything else in particular you wanted to know about :D

Parakeets need their parents for about 4-6 weeks.
