Does a Female Parakeet Make a Good Pet; Everything You Need To Know - Fumi Pets

Last Updated on October 1, 2021 by Fumipets

Male and female parakeets are lively, talkative, and entertaining companions. Females have a slightly different appearance, as well as a slightly different behaviour. Female parakeets have smaller vocabularies and meaner bites than male parakeets, but they are just as good as males for keeping as pets.

Sexing Your Parakeet

Check the cere to see if your parakeet is male or female. Your parakeet’s cere is the coloured fleshy area above its beak. It’s difficult to classify parakeets under the age of a year, but the cere colour of mature parakeets varies by gender. The ceres of male parakeets can be blue, purple, or pink. The ceres of female parakeets are thicker and tend to be brown, white, or tan in colour.

Female Parakeet Behaviors

In general, the female parakeet is slightly more aggressive than her male counterpart due to her role as the builder and protector of the nest. Her harsher bite comes from her strong beak, which was designed to chew through wood for nest-building. A female parakeet, on the other hand, can be just as tame and relaxed as a male parakeet if you stay on her good side. Female parakeets are still safe pets because most parakeets are docile until provoked.

Female parakeets are generally quieter than male parakeets. They are less likely than males to mimic human speech, though they can be taught to speak. Female parakeets chirp less and display fewer social behaviours than male parakeets. This isn’t to say that all female parakeets are quiet, uninterested, or unfriendly. They are, on the contrary, lively and playful birds that can form strong bonds with their human companions.

Deciding To Get A Female Parakeet

If you’re unsure whether to get a male or female parakeet, keep in mind that they all have unique personalities. Female parakeets tend to be more docile and talkative than male parakeets. In the end, the personality of your parakeet and the bond you form with it will determine how much you enjoy spending time with it. It has nothing to do with the bird’s gender.
