Adopted on 2021-05-02
Hi, I`m Turnip! I am a young female budgie who came to Mickaboo in October 2020 from a huge aviary rescue, over 50 budgies all at once! I tend to be a bit of a loner, but I do hang with the other budgies in my foster flock. I enjoy chirping. I am a good eater (although I tend to be last to the food bowl), and share the food bowls without too much quibbling. I do like greens - various types of lettuce, parsley and fresh carrot tops. I like toys and LOVE my swings, and a boing perch that is fun to run up and down. I had an injury to my cere before I came to Mickaboo. It`s healed and doesn`t affect my health just my beautiful budgie perfection. Still, I`m a happy little girl who would love to join 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.
