Hi, I`m Sapphire, the one on the right. I was surrendered to Mickaboo by someone who found me in their backyard. I get very excited when a sprig of fresh fennel is clipped to the bars of my cage, and I`ll hold it with one foot and eat away! I also like to play with the fennel while my foster mom mists me. I am fairly bossy with other birds, I sometimes want my space and other times hang on the bars to be close to budgies in other cage. Guess I`m a gal who likes to change her mind! At the end of the day, I like some gentle beak strokes with a finger before my case is covered for the night. I`m not too flighty and I am slowly getting braver. I watch my foster mom closely when she interacts with other budgies... I`m thinking about giving it a try! Maybe I`d fit right in to YOUR forever home?
In nature, parakeets (budgerigars) 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 parakeet to a household if there is already at least one parakeet living there. Otherwise, parakeets must be adopted in groups of two or more.
