How big is your cage right now? If its smaller than what 1 parakeet has i ADVISE you to get a larger cage or get rid of themif you do live out in the country or even in a small town maybe consider getting a few chickens wish the best! Just remember, parakeets require care just as any other animal does!The nthat means that our cage is too small. My mom refuses to get a bigger cage.
You could explain to your Mom you've researched & learned that your birds need a minimum cage size 30"L x 18"W x 18" D for their health & sanity (show her Chicken_Crazy081 post). JaeG suggests letting them exercise in your room, don't think your Mom would appreciate that. Starlings and dogs suggestion is a good one....Ask your mom if she'd get you a bigger cage, you'd work it off doing extra chores around the house, or figure out ways to earn the monies (babysitting, mowing lawns, walking dogs, washing cars, etc....)
It wouldn't need to be a new cage, check on your local CraigsList if there's one someone don't need anymore. If you're able to get a used one disinfect it well & air out before putting your birds in.
Hopefully you and your Mom can work out a solution./QUOTE]
Unfortunately she doesn't want a biger cage because she thinks that it'll take up too much room and it's too much for two little birds, and I'm like "MOM, DO YOU WANT THE BEST FOR OUR BIRDS?!"
I guess it's 'cause we spend all of our time with our chooks, but I can't imagine life without my 2 parakeets.
