Hi, I`m Coconut, the white budgie seen here with my friend, Blueberry. We were found in Sacramento and turned over to Mickaboo. The nice people that found me noticed I was having problems with one of my wings, so Mickaboo got me in to see the vet. Turns out my wing was broken sometime in my past. It is healed, but it was bothering me so I was picking at it. So the vet has me on Meloxicam and my foster parent says I`m doing well on it, whatever that means... I am not fond of being medicated! I will vigorously object to being caught, held, and given the droplet of medication, but I``m a sweet little budgie and I get over it quickly. I know my foster parent is trying to help me, so I perched on her finger briefly today to thank her. Maybe I`ll try that again sometime if she`s patient with me! I am happy eating the Harrison`s fine and good-quality seed mix I`m being fed, plus some freeze-dried herbs and veggies. I am quite suspicious of those fresh foods, I`ve never seen that before! But I`m willing to maybe kinda sorta give them a try. Would you please consider taking me and Blueberry into 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.
