The large parakeets as pets

Large parakeets live in large flocks and definitely need a conspecific in the aviary. Grand parakeets all have in common that they are very social animals, which also perform mutual grooming. For a species-appropriate attitude, a lot of excursion is necessary, because most large parakeets are very active and curious and need the movement for their muscles and their well-being. An aviary should be equipped consequently with experience food and also in the apartment or the house no poisonous house plants should stand. In any case, it is necessary to pay attention to this, otherwise health problems may occur.

Großsittiche und ihre Ernährung

As different as the individual species are, so different are their eating habits. But what always fits as a species-appropriate food mixture are seeds, berries, fruits and vegetables. Always pay attention to a varied diet. Our food mixtures are low in fat and for large parakeets they offer a very good basis, in addition best still fresh food and mineral stones or Probiotika. Large parakeets generally tend to become fatty quickly. The offered food in the free trade is absolutely not species-appropriate and triggers sooner or later health problems. The parakeets can be fed with herbs or grass stalks and keep themselves busy without having to pay attention to the weight. Sprouted food and cooked food is gladly eaten by all large parakeets. It contains many vitamins and minerals and is a nice variety in the diet.

Keeping large parakeets species-appropriate

In order to give your parakeets plenty of space, you should provide them with an aviary. Although this is very large, it is the most appropriate for the species. The aviary should also include species-appropriate accessories. All furnishings should not contain plastic. By nibbling smallest parts can get into the body and harm your parakeet. Rather fall back on natural raw materials. Perches or toys made of natural wood, but also climbing ropes made of hemp would be possible. For the bowl you should use stainless steel. Galvanized products are toxic and will poison your parakeet in the long run. If it is possible for you, put a big bowl with water. Great parakeets love to bathe and can then maintain their plumage. Best of all would be an outdoor aviary. That would mean even more space to fly. The animals have fresh air and they get their urge to move much better. If you decide to keep them in an outdoor aviary, consider the following things. The roofing of a part of the aviary would be useful to provide some weather protection. Also you should think about a shelter, because there they can breed in a tree hollow and also in winter your parakeets have then a retreat. In the best case the room is also heated or at least insulated. Consider also that outside animals roam around, which your parakeets like to eat. Secure the aviary accordingly with floor-to-ceiling wire or a concrete slab. Cleaning of the aviary should be done regularly. Drinking bowls and food bowls need to be cleaned daily. A complete cleaning would be every two to four weeks. This is the only way to ensure a species-appropriate husbandry.
