Just like people develop at different rates, so do our pets. Quaker parakeets, also known as Monk parakeets, usually fledge at 6-8 weeks of age. This is the age when they have most of their adult plumage in, and start to fly and walk around. It is pretty amazing how quickly they develop from a naked chick out of the egg to a flying, talking, beautiful green bird. To learn more stop by for a visit with one of our technicians or doctors. We have a New Bird Owner kit for you. Or simply call 813-885-4477.
