Species: Cockatiel
Sex: Male

Deacon here. I was found outdoors in the East Bay, unable to fly because of a broken wing. A kind stranger took me to an animal shelter and the shelter called Mickaboo. Thanks to Mickaboo I was able to get prompt veterinary care, and boy did I need it! Try walking around for days with a broken arm and you`ll understand what I mean. At first, doctors were saying that they might have to amputate part of my wing but after looking at the x-rays and performing some adroit bone-setting and casting, Mickaboo`s expert avian veterinarians were able to avoid that! Even though the doctors saved my wing it still doesn`t work perfectly I can still get around fine by climbing and even fly a little. I was adopted and met my pal Buster but had to come back to Mickaboo recently. So, we are looking for a new person to love. If you have a nice window and some love to give, ask to meet Deacon and Buster. Maybe I will let you scratch my head!
In nature, cockatiels live in large flocks. A single bird in a cage spends much of his/her life being lonely because humans have things they must do that take them away. We therefore will only adopt a single cockatiel to a household if there is already at least one cockatiel living there. Otherwise, cockatiels must be adopted in groups of two or more.
