Hi, I`m Dasher, a cute little boy budgie. My pals and I came to Mickaboo in September 2020 from an aviary rescue. Not sure how we`re all related, but we get along well together and we`re very color-coordinated! For coming from an aviary, we are surprisingly good-natured little budgies! We are not frantically scared of people, and we don`t even bite very hard - sort of "more in sorrow than in anger" bites. I`m somewhat tame, and my foster family thinks that all it would take for me to become more tame is patience and millet - I already eat millet out of a hand after a few seconds of hesitation.
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.
