Hi there! I`m Cricket, a budgie that was found in Dublin in August 2021 and surrendered to Mickaboo. My foster mom says my chirp is utterly adorable, and that I`m somewhat hand tame. She thinks I could be a really awesome little companion bird. I like chatting with other budgies I hear in the house. I can`t wait til I`m out of quarantine so I can see and interact with them! More to come, but don`t I sound like a cutie for YOUR forever home?
Check out my starring role in the Mickaboo adoption fair at around the 48 minute mark: here.
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.
