Hi, I`m Elizabeth. I am a very pretty, pale blue budgie with light grey wings. I am rather fragile health-wise, and I live in a special-needs cage with some other budgies from my flock who came to Mickaboo with various health problems. I had a recent vet stay due to a recurrence of a preen gland carcinoma. It was removed but I`ve been slower to heal this time (that happens to all of us as we get older). If you have the time and attention to give a budgie like me, I would love to hang out at your house (in a special-needs cage) and make happy budgie noises just for you.
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.
