Hi there, I`m Johnny. I came to Mickaboo in September 2021 with my pal Masha due to changes in my owner`s life. I am eating healthy pellets, and since I came in on an unhealthy all-seed diet, that`s a good thing! When my foster parent provides our daily bowl of assorted greens, I have started checking out the lettuce. Pretty soon I`ll definitely be a healthier budgie! And a happy one, since I also love the occasional piece of millet I get for a treat.

It doesn`t look like I would be a good fit for small children. Although I do not respond with total panic flight when my cage is moved or rearranged, I am timid and definitely not tame. Maybe ok with older kids or kids that are very calm and patient.

Check out my video from the October 2021 virtual adoption fair!

Don`t you think I would be cute in your forever home?

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.
