Hi there! I`m Lucy, a sweet little budgie who came to Mickaboo in August 2021 via the Santa Cruz shelter. I am sort of a shy girl, I really enjoy sitting by my mirror and watching what`s going on. Throughout the late morning and afternoon, I like to make some noise. My noises reminds my foster mom of sound effects from video games or an alien space ship taking off.
I`m good at eating my pellets and of course, I love millet too. I`m still getting used to hands in my cage, it`ll just take me some more time. My foster mom thinks I`m super sweet and enjoys watching me call out to my foster brother, a Mickaboo Conure. I haven`t been around other animals or children but as long as I`m given my own space, my foster mom thinks I`ll do just fine.
Wouldn`t I be a good fit 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.
