I have a new parakeet..( Have had for about 1-1/2 weeks).. He has been eating, not too much
but I haven’t seen him drinking any water. Also he doesn’t sleep at night with his head on his
back.. should I be concerned? I use to go to see Ted with our cocker back in the 50′s when he
was in Niles.. What a wonderful vet..
Your parakeet is probably drinking. They do not drink a lot of water, so I’m sure he is getting a drink here & there. If you are using a drip bottle or some type of water bottle, I don’t recommend those. An open dish is best and just keep it changed and clean daily.
Birds sleep in different ways, so that is nothing to worry about. He needs time to settle in and he will get more comfortable with you over time.
