Hi, I`m Mar, on the right, a surrendered boy budgie who came to Mickaboo from the Santa Cruz shelter in December 2021, along with my buddy Rio. We seem to be pretty inseparable at the moment! We are adorable but a bit skittish still. I went straight to the vet for a checkup, we`re waiting for details! Stay tuned!
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.
