Hi, I`m Pepper. I came to Mickaboo in Feb 2021. I`m a young boy budgie who was injured so badly, I had get my leg amputated. The kind vets who work with Mickaboo took care of me and I am on the road to recovery. I`m in a foster home now. My foster mom says I`m somewhat friendly and I`m getting along fine in a flight cage with other budgies, despite having only one leg. I have no trouble flying! Wouldn`t I be a great match for your forever home?

You can see more of me in this video from Mickaboo`s March 2021 virtual adoption fair: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeTPQstX_Ow
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.
