Hi! I`m Violet (or "Violent" as I am sometimes called). I`m a budgie who loves to play and run around or fly around. I like people and other budgies and toys! Generally I like people when they are on the other side of the cage bars from me. At that safe distance I will happily sit and talk "budgie", and whisper sweet nothings, and even give you a kiss on occasion. If you try to get too personal, like putting a finger in front of me to pick me up, I will probably pinch you once or twice to remind you who is boss. It`s a bad habit and maybe one day I`ll find a person I trust enough to stop pinching. When I came to Mickaboo I had a very large hernia. It was probably the result of my trying to lay eggs too often. One of Mickaboo`s wonderful avian veterinarians has fixed it for me, but I still have a small pouch under my tummy. It doesn`t get in my way, though. Here`s a video of me playing basketball: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q82XkyXyC8o&feature=youtu.be Because of surgery to fix my hernia, I should never be allowed to lay eggs. To be safe, I probably need to live in a one-budgie household with a very special person who will love me for my personality. I hope there is someone out there like that....
