Hi, I`m River. I am a senior budgie who came to Mickaboo in May 2021 via the Sonoma shelter. I`m heading straight to the vet for a checkup. I am tame, step up on fingers and am very chirpy. More to follow!
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.
