Hi, I`m Becky. I was found as a stray in someone`s backyard in San Jose. I`m a lively and feisty little gal. I can be incredibly sweet once I get to know you, and if you are my preferred person, it won`t take long. I love to eat seeds and MILLET. My foster parents are trying to get me to eat some veggies and pellets but I`ve only eaten veggies a few times. I love to listen to music and other birds. I have a range of voices from screams when I see something outside, to tweets, to soft chirps with what my foster parents think are kisses. I can fly and as my flight feathers are growing I`m becoming better at it and I fly less flappy now. Don`t I sound like a sweet little gal to add to 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.
