We would like to thank Jacky for sending us the picture of her Parakeet Blue on his new FunTime Birdy Freshman Playgym.

Here is what Jacky had to say:

The toys arrived here late Tuesday, so Blue has only had a couple days to try them out. He still hasn’t climbed onto the perches yet, but after walking around the gym a few times and seeing his favorite ball on the gym he is now beginning to play with it!

I have included a couple pics, but will send a better one when he’s a bit more active!

Thanks again for the follow up (it’s very rare here to get great service!!!)

Thanks Jacky for the kind words!!!!

Parakeets as Pets

My first ever pet as a little girl was a Parakeet named Blue Boy.  I have had Parakeets my entire life.  My little “Olive” pictured on the left, inspired me to start my own business.  She passed away in 2004 but her memory lives forever in my heart.

If you’re considering purchasing a pet parakeet, you can’t go wrong. These adorable creatures make delightful companions and are relatively inexpensive to care for. Parakeets are 7 inches long and weigh between 3-5 ounces. Most parakeets live 5-10 years. But with proper care and attention, they can live up to 14.

Here are just a few of the reasons why parakeets are ideal pets:

  • They are excellent talkers and singers. As they play with their bird toys , parakeets will sing, whistle or chatter. This can be quite amusing. If you play music around your little guy you may find that he has learned to sing along with a particular CD.
  • They are fantastic entertainers. Parakeets love to play. If you provide your feathered friend with various types of bird toys,  he’ll keep you entertained for hours and because parakeets are so vivacious, they will put their parakeet toys to good use. So be sure to purchase bird toys that are well-made and won’t fall apart on the first day.
  • They are great with kids. Unlike macaws or African Greys, which tend to be a bit temperamental, parakeets are calm and predictable. They love attention and get along well with just about everyone.

Having a pet parakeet can be an extremely rewarding experience. By feeding your parakeet a pelleted diet and providing him with plenty of bird toys and mental stimulation, you can keep him happy and healthy his whole life.

Review: Parakeet Bird Stand (Freshman) by FunTime Birdy

The Freshman FunTime Birdy Parakeet Bird Stand

I just received this wonderful testimonial from Lynda M. after she purchased the FunTime Birdy Freshman Bird Stand for her two Parakeets Lilly and Herman.

She writes:

“All in all, everything was beyond my expectations.  I couldn’t have asked for a better transaction.  A wonderful product for the price.  Customer service was absolutely A+, and the product was wrapped very well for shipping.

Instructions were easy to understand, too!  It was a pleasure dealing with Fun Time Birdy, and I would do it again without hesitation.  :)”

Thanks Lynda for those kind words.  I look forward to seeing the pictures of Lilly and Herman on the playgym.
