Small but busy birds, parakeets need several small cage accessories to make their cage a comfy home. Parakeet sized bird perches are a must. Dowels are cheap but not a healthy choice for birds that use their feet daily. No pet bird wants the equivalent of carpel tunnel syndrome in their feet. Parakeets love bird beds, bungees and cage top perches. Make sure that your favorite budgie has plenty of parakeet cage accessories so his cage a real homey place to hang out.
