Moustache Parakeets can make great companions to both beginner bird owners or those who have more bird experience. They can be fantastic talkers if you work with them, but more importantly, they are very social and affectionate. Moustached Parakeets are a great size, they are very playful and they enjoy being out of the cage and with their human companion. Ideally, the minimum cage size for this bird would be 25’’ long, 21’’ wide and 29’’ high with ½’’ wire spacing. Every hand fed baby is weaned on to a high variety diet. They are weaned onto fruits and veggies, a soak and sprout mix we make here in the store, high variety seed that we also make here in the store, and naturally colored pellet.
