New Pet Parakeet
We have had our new pet parakeet for 2 weeks. He only eats his pellet/seed when we take out the honey seed treat. I do not ever see him drinking any water. Should I assume that he is since he is eating and his poop seems to be fine?
He never plays with his toys. When he first came home I was able to pet him alot in his cage but now he seems moody and wants to bite when I put my hand near him in the cage. Not so bad when he is out of his cage. We take him out of the cage for 10-30 minutes every evening and let him walk around and be with us. He will walk up us and get on our shoulder so he really is not a bad bird.
I understand that parakeets do not like the dark and silence so when we are gone during the day we leave the ceiling light and radio on in the room his cage is kept in. Wondering if this is too much light or is it ok to leave them in this much light all day?
Should I be concerned that my parakeet is not playing with his toys and pretty much perches in one place since we have only had him for 2 weeks.
