Hi, I`m Frances. I came to Mickaboo from the Santa Cruz shelter in June 2021. I sure like to fly! I even escaped when I was being transferred to a carrier at the shelter. I came in from the shelter with budgie Bear, with whom I now share a cage. I am a quiet budgie and coy with humans but I am friendly with Bear, and will hide behind her If I think my human might be thinking of touching me. I haven`t been here long, and maybe I`ll warm up more, too early to tell. But I`m a sweet girl and my cute budgie sounds might be just the right match for 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.
