Taming and Training the Bourkes Parakeet

Bourkes parakeets are easily trained or tamed if they aren’t already tame when you bring them into your home.

Unlike other parrots such as the Quaker (Monk Parakeet) or Parrotlet, the Bourkes parakeet will remain tame, even if not handled for a while.

A hand-raised Bourkes parakeet or a hand-fed Bourkes parakeet makes just as good a pet as a parent-raised Bourkes parakeet.

Each can be tamed at any time.

When you teach them using positive reinforcement techniques, they will become tamer and tamer.

They respond very well to positive reinforcement bird training techniques.
