Bought smallest food dish but parakeet is still finding a way to lay across it
I just purchased a parakeet a week and a half ago. I tried to go for a boy (his beak has a blue stripe over it) but I’m wondering if this might be a girl. The cage I purchased had really nice, large food and water dishes. Pretty soon, my parakeet climbed right in the food dish and made himself comfortable. He just wanted to stay there. So after reading a bit, I got a much, much smaller food dish. But now my parakeet is just laying his body across the top of the food dish. If I wasn’t worried it would be comical. Also, he hasn’t begun singing yet. He’s made a few random noises. He does preen and stretch his wings and looks at us when we talk to him.
