Hi, I`m Mango. I came into Mickaboo with Rocco. I`m female, mostly green with some yellow. He`s male, mostly yellow with some green. Besides that, we look a lot alike. The big difference is that I weigh a bit more, which is not a good thing.

Because of a problem with one of my wings, I`ll never be able to fly as well as most budgies, but my foster dad has been working with me and I have gotten a lot better over the last week! I can fly across the room, gain some altitude, and land safely. The diet and exercise program they have me on has worked very well so far.

Anyway, until further notice I do want to stay with Rocco. Check back soon to see how we`re doing!
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.
