Adopted on 2020-07-25
Hello! I`m Snowflake. I live in an aviary with other birds. I do like to eat from hands if I am hungry. If some lucky adopter is willing to spend time with me, I could probably be tamed using food as an incentive. I will sit on your shoulder or hands - but only when eating! I like Nutri-An cakes and leafy green vegetables. I am still reluctant to eat orange veggies, but our foster mom is trying to persuade me to try them, because they are a good source of Vitamin A. I have lost a few toes in an attack, but it doesn`t slow me down! Could I please join 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.
