Hi, I`m Sweet Pea. I was surrendered to an animal shelter when my person could no longer care for me. Curry and I are quite the cute little couple. We are very much in love. We are not hand tame. Right now, we are in an aviary with 10 other budgies and we get along well with all of them, though we are mostly interested in each other. Our favorite treat is millet and we`ll approach our person carefully if they are holding some of that, so that we can snag a taste. Our person feeds us a diet of NutriAn cakes, Roudybush pellets and Totally Organic Napoleon Seed; we also enjoy wet mustard greens, kale leaves and broccoli slaw. We are so much in love, our caretaker needs to be extra vigilant about keeping me from laying eggs. I have not done so yet, but you`ll need to keep a sharp eye on me and my surroundings to make sure I`m not trying to build a nest or haven`t laid eggs in the food bowl or something like that. Our foster parent controls the environment to keep the hormones down by meal feeding, and maintaining temperature and light control, but of course we budgies can be pretty stubborn when it comes to hormones! That means it`s also important to make sure that my calcium levels are sufficient by supplementing with calcium powder or shaved cuttle bone. That way, if I I do sneak by you and lay an egg, I hopefully won`t become egg bound (which can sometimes be fatal if not treated by an avian vet immediately). It sounds like a lot but it`s not. Curry and I would love to join your forever home and keep you company with our sweet budgie sounds!
