Adopted on 2021-09-15
Hi, I`m Skye, a budgie turned in to Mickaboo in July 2021. I was found with an injured wing and foot. The vet says Skye appears to have been attacked by a predator bird. I am improving! I am 31g and flying around my cage a lot. I definitely make use of my wonky foot, the toes stay open enough that I can perch on it. I`m a cutie, all right!
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.
