Parakeets at the Farm

I now have a beautiful group of bright turquoise blue parakeets.

I hope you saw my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48 debuting the latest addition to my farm menagerie - 14 gorgeous and colorful birds. Parakeets are indigenous to Australia, where they are known as budgerigars or budgies. They are very social, both with each other and with people. My parakeets are in one of two large wooden cages I designed after a 1900 French antique that was originally used to house doves or quails. In the other cage are my vibrant and melodious red factor canaries and two Combassou finches. All of them are singing and communicating with each other and enjoying their days from my airy, light-filled porch.

Enjoy these photos.
