Sub-Species: Standard Budgie
Adopted on 2022-01-27
Hi, I`m Ben. I came to Mickaboo in October 2021 via the Fremont animal shelter. My foster mom says I am a happy, healthy budgie who is energetic and loves music and playing with toys. My foster brother got adopted a few weeks ago, and I am definitely lonely without him.

I love to get treats - especially broccoli!! Along with that, I eat Nutri-an Cakes and a bit of seed for a treat. I often tweet back to my foster parents like we`re having a conversation.

Don`t I sound adorbs? Wouldn`t I be awesome 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.
