Adopted on 2021-02-21
Hi, I`m Leo, the blue guy on the left. My best gal Lila and I came to Mickaboo because our owner had to leave the country. Covid has even changed the world for little budgies - airlines now refuse to let us fly with them at all. Our owner worked with us and we are a pretty tame pair. He really loved us and will miss us very much, we know. But, hey, we`re budgies and we seem to be adjusting well. We feel so lucky to be together, and we adore each other. We often groom each other & rub beaks. We make lots of chirps and happy sounds, especially when music is on. Aren`t we a pretty pair? Wouldn`t you like a pair like us to make your home sound happy?
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.
