Species: Parakeet
Sex: Female
Sub-Species: Standard Budgie
Adopted on 2022-01-27

Hi, there, I`m Hope and I`m a cutie! I was surrendered to Mickaboo along with my parents in March 2021. I came in at 3 months old so I`m still under a year old! Which means we *think* I`m a girl, but still only 99% sure.

I`m strong and fly a lot. I loooove my mirror/chain/bell toys. I`m pretty adventurous and a good eater - pellets, seed, and Nutri-An cakes go down smooth, plus I LOVE broccoli, parsley, fennel and am happy to eat an assortment of greens.

I am fond of trying to detach the food bowls and move them all over the cage. I am a happy bather, both in a tub and the water bowl.

You can see a video of me here in the Mickaboo April 2021 adoption fair: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnN4nZJSbAk. Wouldn`t I make a cute addition to your forever flock?

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.
