Age of parakeets in pet stores
by Ali Sabour
How old are most young parakeets when they are sold to pet stores?
Young parakeets in pet stores are usually 6-12 months old. However, the ages can really vary at a pet store since they carry birds from babies to adulthood. You also cannot normally trust a pet store employee to give you correct information about the birds for sale. In my opinion, if you are not adopting, it’s much better to purchase from a breeder rather than a pet store.
