Adopted on 2021-01-01
Hi, I`m Tomato! I came to Mickaboo from a huge aviary rescue, over 50 budgies all at once! My foster mom says I`m one of the braver ones and that I might be able to be tamed pretty easily. I like to play with my bowling ball toy. A lot of us fosters have been in this foster home for 2 weeks now, and we are settling in very well. Still shy, but also a little curious. We are good eaters, and share our bowl without too much quibbling. We like greens - various types of lettuce, parsley and fresh carrot tops. We are learning about the toys in our house. We have a pair of swings, and mom saw that we can actually swing in unison. We have a boing perch that is fun to run up and down, and we use it to swing ourselves over to a other toys. We also love the set of rings to climb through. Wouldn`t you like to adopt a me plus a couple more cute little baby budgies?
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.
