I just got a new parakeet last night and he is very smart, he eats out of my hand and I already have him perched trained and somewhat finger trained. But I am afraid that when I go off to school he will be lonely and grieve himself! I truly do not want this to happen, but I also do not want to put a mirror in the cage with him because I want him to be more attactched to me instead of another bird (even if it is himself) I thought maybe I could put a mirror in his cage while I'm at school, and take it out when I get home. Will this work? confused

Your bird SHOULD be okay... If there are toys and maybe some music in the background, he should remain entertained. I suggest not to put a mirror in, otherwise he might become attatched. When I go to school, he is fine.

Okay, thank-you very much. I thought that, but I just wanted to be sure.

Yeah, your keet will be fine. smile Especially if you turn on the radio for him before you go. And then when you get home, he'll be so happy to see you! :p laugh

I turn the radio on for Birdie when I go to school. He's fine.

When I go to college in the morning, I turn the radio on in my house, too. If you get a second parakeet can you stop turning the radio on? or should you still leave it on?

I doubt that you would need to keep the radio on if you have 2 keets, cuz they can keep each other occupied. But since one can get really bored by itself, the radio is a good thing to give it some entertainment. But I'm sure it wouldn't be bad to keep it on with more than one of them. Just not as necessary. smile smile

I also turned on the radio when I leave the house. Sometimes I would call home and listen to what is going on in the house with the phone monitor. Lot's of times, I would hear my birdie chirping along with the music

I have two keets and I still always leave the TV on for them. Not just for the lonlyness, but also because they do not like silence except at night.
Maranda, have you considered getting a second keet? They are so happy as flock birds.
