Hi, I am Luxa, a pretty little girl who came to Mickaboo from the Santa Cruz shelter in February 2021. I have a beautiful pale yellow body with a blue belly. I`m pretty petite and possibly quite young (it`s typically a guessing game with budgies like me!). I am curious and happy with human interaction through the cage. I enjoy music and get very active when my foster home is loud and lively.
I love my swing and flying around the double flight cage with my bonded foster buddy Huevo (https://mickaboo.org/asm3/animal?id=6864) shown here with me. Aren`t we cute? She`s not unhealthily fat, by the way, she just gets puffed up when the camera comes out! We both are good at picking at fresh veggies in the afternoon. With a little patience and the right environment, I could likely be a tame little girl. Maybe in 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.
