Bourke parakeets are grass eaters, in the wild they forage on the ground for grasses and seeds. In captivity we feed them parakeet mix, i add extra canary seed, nigger seed, help seed, oil sun flower and grip to the mix. Any fruit and vegetable that comes available. i feed my birds, apples, celery, kale, romaine lettuce, egg food and plenty hemp seed when cold weather or breeding season.
Bourkes parakeets are relatively easy breeders. once they decide to breed they don't mind nesting is a parakeet nesting box or even a finch box. they are not picky about nesting boxes. i personally use English nesting box for easy inspection. Bourkes are not jealous to be check when they have chicks, i can peak at their babies with the female not even moving from the nest.
Breeding season for the Bourkes parakeet tends to occur in spring time here in California. I have some pair that will breed year around.
