parakeet questions

Do parakeets have feather dust like cockatiels? And if you get them in pairs will they not bond to you as well? Thanks!

Beekle has a bit of feather 'dandruff' but there's not much of it and you don't really notice it. If you get two 'keets they will probably bond with each other more than with you but I don't think you'll be totally ignored if you make an effort.

no parakeets or other birds if in pairs is a meth yes they bond to each other but if you interact and play with both all the time then you will be flock leader and they will be freindly with you , trust me i have 8 conures 14 parakeets and 2 lovebirds who are paired up and im always playing with them infact one pair will only play with me and i cant leave them for long periods because if i do they scream and scream , its all about how you interact with them my parakeets when they lay eggs i get to hold thier babies as the parents feed the little ones in my hand no lies . its all about how you interact and play with them

Parakeets do get a but of dandruff, but nothing major.

My first parakeet really enjoyed playing with me, and thought I was his best friend. When I got Soda a friend, he only pays a little attention to me, but I don't mind, since he'll come to me when he has free range. Birds will bond more with their partners because they understand them better, but there will always be exceptions. I am cherishing every moment I have with my parakeets, because one is in the hospital right now.

My friend has two, and I've never noticed any. And my violin teacher has one, and he doesn't have any dust that I notice.
