Hi, I`m Banana. I was surrendered to Mickaboo in December 2020 with my pals by someone who couldn`t take care of us anymore. We are definitely a flock and need to stay together. We rely on each other, and even though there are multiple food bowls in our cage, we all eat together at a large food tray. Watching us maneuver for space on that one tray is daily entertainment for our foster family! We came to Mickaboo eating only seed (boo for our health!) and have already made a full transition to Rowdy Bush pellets! We love broccoli, spinach, celery, brussels sprouts, carrot strips, strawberries & pineapple. We have ignored the bath bowl but mostly enjoy spritzes with the spray bottle.
I am a very talented singer and I LOVE chatting with the other budgies in the family. In fact, my foster mom distinctly heard me actually saying "Pretty bird" in between chirrups, gibberish, and squawks. I learned that pretty quickly because my foster family all say "Hey pretty bird" every morning when they uncover us. Even though I`m not the bravest, I am still comfortable enough to sing, preen, and perch when someone is near the cage. I LOVE out of cage play time. I will fly loops & will perch on the highest point! I am a very strong and fast flier and am is the least trusting with my hand compared to the rest of the flock. However, wherever Shadow and Cloud go, I go too, so once you get Cloud and Shadow back into the cage, I`ll she`ll fly over on my own and go in by myself.
Our little flock would love a forever home together - might you be able to bring us home? We`ll keep you entertained!
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.
