How Can I help my parakeets like their cage?

Hi! This may will make one year with my pair of Budgies. I found that I may have spoiled them by letting them out of their cage all the time. After they have their breakfast, they’ll start screeching because I try to keep them in until 12pm. (Usually uncover their cage at 9am). Will this change if I purchase a bigger cage? I am now trying a different approach, keeping them inside for about 30min at a time when they head to have a snack. Any help would be great, thank you. Have a good day and stay safe!


Hi Ronald,

If they are going to be in the cage more, then you might want to get a larger cage and some new toys. They will probably still want out if they see you, but when you aren’t around it will give them room to exercise and toys to play with.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
