Default Top 3 Parrots For Apartment Living

Some people automatically assume that parrots are a poor choice of pet for apartment living. After all, these highly social animals love to sing and dance, which could anger some of the nearby tenants. While certain parrots do in fact make a fair amount of noise, there are other species that are quieter and more docile. If you're looking for an apartment-friendly parrot, check out some of the suggestions listed below.

Let me first start off by stressing the importance of providing your parrot with a healthy living environment. If you don't provide your feathered friend with everything they need to grow and remain healthy, they may either lash out in aggression or screech loudly using their vocal abilities. You probably don't want either one of these things happening, especially if you live in an apartment.

Parakeet

Parakeets are a wonderful choice for apartment living. These medium-sized birds are both affectionate and quite. The term "parakeet" actually refers to a broad range of different parrots, but the "Budgie" is the most widely known. It features soft green feathers with hunts of yellow, dark blue and black. Budgies make wonderful pet parrots for apartment living.

Cockatiel

Cockatiels are another highly popular choice for apartment living. These brilliant-colored show birds love to dance, play and sing, but they are surprisingly quite compared to most other parrot species. While cockatiels enjoy singing in their cage, they do it soft enough so that it's really difficult to hear from far away. As long as your cockatiel is tucked inside, their singing shouldn't disturb your neighbors. Cockatiels can live up to 20 years in captivity, but only if their nutritional needs are properly met. Feed your pet cockatiel a diet consisting of either a brand-name seed or pellet mix along with fresh fruits and veggies.

Pinous Parrot

Of course, some apartment dwellers will probably want a larger parrot than a cockatiel or parakeet. Unfortunately, most larger parrots are naturally more vocal, making them poor choices for apartments. Before you go throwing in the towel, though, you should check out a pinous parrot. They aren't quite as large as macaws or African Greys, but pinous parrots are still relatively big compared to cockatiels and parakeets. These parrots possess an arrangement of multicolored feathers along with a large, prominent beak. In addition to their docile nature, pinous parrots are also incredibly quite and make minimal noise. The bottom line is that these make excellent pet parrots for apartment living.

It's a nice short overview. However, from my personal experience of owning two cockatiels, I can say that they can get loud when they flock call. The thin apartment walls easily carry their call

I agree. I live on the 5th floor and believe me when I say that I can regularly hear my female tiel when I'm down at street level, especially when I'm coming home from work. I swear she knows its me coming into the building because as soon as I hit the first front step outside she starts yappin' it up, and very loudly at that!

Haha, when we used to live in a third floor apartment (Not so long ago in fact), mine also recognized the car beep.

One of the benefits of living in a senior apartment with birds is that many of your neighbors are hard of hearing. My Linnies can get loud at times and neighbors day they cannot hear them. I can hear a TV on in the apartment next to me so the walls are thin as they say.
