Hi! My name is Vixen and I`m one strong and smart snowflake. I am possibly the mom of several of the babies rescued by Mickaboo from a large aviary of 50+ budgies. I survived the deplorable living conditions of the aviary we were in, albeit with a few missing toe tips. I coexist peacefully with my foster siblings, but I must admit I am not one to get too bonded with other birds. I like to be semi-near the other birds but if they get too close, I`ll give them some stern chirping. I`m not your tamest budgie, but I would love to just keep you company like a good budgie should. Won`t you please give me a chance?
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.
