Rare Blue Parakeet

I took the kids to pet stores some times, just to look at different critters that they have. To see the children look so excited and all happy was a real motivation for me to get out of the house during the dreary winter months.

We came upon this beautiful Rare Blue Parakeet, and I couldn't help myself from snapping some pictures.


Many stores don't like you to take pictures of their critters for some reasons, so after a few shots I was told to stop my pictures fanatic behavior. I didn't understand why it was a big deal to them, but I respect their wishes.


I feel so bad for this gorgeous bird sitting in a cage days after days, and my little boy wants to have one. It was on sale too at a reasonable price of $27.99, but I just couldn't keep looking at this bird in a cage.


Can you imagine seeing this bird in nature? Do you think it will be happier flying free, and singing with its kind rather than being isolated in a cage? I might not have a chance to photograph them if they were free, but I can live with that.

  2. I had a bird growing up.....it really is a confined life. I would let it out of the cage to fly around LOL!!~ I will tell you too birds are messy, they get their seeds all over, wings...hey I can't blame them, they really are not meant to be house pets......this little guy was a beauty!

  3. I have never had a pet bird, but I've been assured that they are just as messy as any other kind.

  6. I think they probably don't want pictures taken because they are afraid. They probably never know if it is someone like you taking it just for the beauty or if its someone trying to catch them doing something wrong. Beautiful bird.

  8. So pretty!! As a child, I had a blue one and a green one. So did my grandpa, he let his fly loose in the house-my mom wouldn't let me tho:) Great memories.

  10. Lovely photos and thanks for expressing your thoughts, in a perfect world they would indeed be free but after years of breeding parakeets in captivity could they survive in the wild? I know they couldn't where I live. Maybe the answer is to give them as large of cage as possible with lots of fly room and lots of tender loving care, I know parakeets can develop bonds with people. Not sure..........I do not have any birds but I think by dogs would rather be with me than outside all the time, the cats, not so sure about them.........lol.......no I'm sure they are happy here.

  14. Yes, it would be wonderful if all of these birds could be free, but that is a sentiment which cannot be realized anymore. The photos are wonderfuly detailed and clear. I'd love to have that bird ...

  16. Mums, you are talking my language. I love birds. I have always had birds. Right now I have a 21 year old male cockatiel, and a 6 year old female parakeet. This rare blue/grey parakeet you show is adorable. I can see he is an older bird because the bars on his head are gone. So, he has been at the pet store awhile. (I too take pictures at the pet stores and bird fairs). The price is steep, that is probably why he is not gobbled up and remains at the store.

  17. First, what wonderful photos. Blue is very rare and he is very special. You could not stop looking at him because you wanted to set him free. I've had many birds in my lifetime and I love them but keeping them caged is just like if we were in prison. Birds were meant to fly and spread their beautiful wings.
