Hi, I`m Banana. I was surrendered to Mickaboo in December 2020 with my pals by someone who couldn`t take care of us anymore. I came to Mickaboo eating only seed and have made a full transition to Rowdy Bush pellets! I love broccoli, spinach, celery, brussels sprouts, carrot strips, strawberries & pineapple. I mostly enjoy spritzes with the spray bottle.
I am a very talented singer and I LOVE chatting with the other budgies in the family. My foster mom distinctly heard me actually saying "Pretty bird" in between chirrups, gibberish, and squawks. I learned that pretty quickly because my foster family all say "Hey pretty bird" every morning when they uncover us. Even though I`m not the bravest, I am still comfortable enough to sing, preen, and perch when someone is near the cage. I LOVE out of cage play time. I will fly loops & will perch on the highest point! I am a very strong and fast flier.
Might you be able to bring me home? I`ll keep you entertained!
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.
