Species: Parakeet
Sex: Male
Sub-Species: Standard Budgie
Adopted on 2020-01-07
Hi, I`m Flapjack. I was surrendered to Mickaboo by someone who came across a person trying to sell a bedraggled and very unwell budgie to a pet store owner. My foster parent thought I was tame because I would flatten out like a little pancake at med time. After meds, I would just lay flat in her hand and allow my head to be scratched. Well now I`m feeling better, so I bit and she realized I am nowhere close to tame, simply and sadly only terrified. I came in with a broken leg! so I`m currently wearing a splint and on two medications twice daily. But my foster parent says I am a very energetic and feisty guy would would do well with a couple of other budgies to play with. Anyone looking for a very special budgie who will need some help becoming used to people? I`m your guy!
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.
