I didn't let her out to fly yesterday so today she was flapping her wings around and running back and forth on her perches, so I opened the cage door so she could figure it out. Normally I just take her out. After about 20 minutes she finally tried to climb down her cage and flew out:)

I just hope now she will know how to get back inside

Been 2 hours and she's been outside still, I held the food upto her and she hopped right on, and I had to slowly bring her in the cage again

I would definitely recommend creating a "landing area" at the doorway of the cage, so that the keet can gently land in the door area and not have to fly in through an opening. It is much safer for the keet, and keets like to hang out in their "doorway" and survey their domain!

She's acting really wierd, she got used to the cage and uses everything in it now, but today she's sitting on a perch she usually doesn't sit on, and she's all crouched down and not singing/chirping to music

Should I be worried?

Edit: Nevermind, moved her near a window and now she's fine and chirping

I love hearing updates on Paris smile Sounds like she has come a long way since your first post here. Awesome!
Sounds like she was just a little tired earlier huh?
I agree that a landing platform or something in front of her door would be really nice. What kind of door is on her cage? Is it a slider or what?
If you google bird cage platforms you will find some you can attach to outside of cage. Or you could even just attach a rope perch to the outside, in front of and just below the bottom of door opening.
If your door is a slider(slides up and down?) you might be able to modify it into one that opens into a platform like I did with mine.

oh but illusive..they ARE geniuses! LOL At least I think so smile

Parakeets are extremely smart, many studies have been done on their intelligence levels. It is a main reason I enjoy them so much as a pet!

Yes kksuns has an excellent idea there - if you take a bendy rope perch you can "create" a landing spot by making a loop of the rope in front of the doorway. That should be an easy fix to give a landing spot for now while you research more sturdy solutions.

She looks bored everyday now, I want to get another parakeet for her. All she does is sit on the top perch looking bored and not chirping, and she still hasn't used her cuttlebone. She hasn't even touched her toys and it's been over two weeks now.

Is it okay if I put the new one in her old cage? And what should I do when I get it? Should I keep them both in the same room, or will the new one feel bad since Paris has this huge cage, or will she feel bad because the new one's in her old cage?

Should I let them out to fly to meet each other, and when will I be able to move them both to the big cage? (I know when I do I'll have to rearrange the things in the big cage)

Please reply, thanks smile

P.S She's not hand trained, and I doubt the new one will be, but I can't watch her being depressed everyday, and I want to let her out to fly around, she knows how to get back into the cage herself.

Also should I not let them fly out for a week or so after I shift them both to the big cage, just so the new one can adjust to the new cage and hopefully learn that's his home now?
