Adopted on 2020-11-03
Hi, I`m Sofia. I came with a few pals from an aviary rescue directly to Mickaboo. They took me to the vet for a checkup, and now I`m hanging with my gals at a Mickaboo foster home. I`m a brave, active gal. I get along with my budgie cagemates, although when we all get in typical budgie squabbles, I don`t back down! I`m not fond of being handled and I have bitten my foster mom! I love the sunshine, my swing, and nibbling on greens. Want a feisty girl for your budgie flock? That`s me!
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.
