Caring for Parakeet Wings, Claws, Beak, Eyes

Parakeets are small animals with a simple system. They do not need large amounts of care to remain healthy, but they do require SOME care! The four main body areas that you need to keep an eye on are the parakeet's wings, claws, beak, and eyes.

These pages will provide a summary of the things you should understand, so you can do quick troubleshooting of your keet acting odd. Always be prepared to call a vet, though. Keets have tiny bodies and can go from “slightly sick” to “quite ill” in a short period of time.
