Adopted on 2021-08-15
Hi, I`m Artichoke! I am a young male budgie who came to Mickaboo in October 2020 from a huge aviary rescue. I am a bright, active, little guy. I love toys, swings and greens like kale, lettuce, cilantro and parsley. Broccoli...not so much. But that`s pretty good don`t cha think? Wouldn`t I be a super veggie to add to YOUR forever flock?

If you`d like to learn even more about me, check out my feature in Mickaboo`s May 2021 virtual adoption fair: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBT4yAuWMm8


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.
