Hi, I`m Rio, on the left. I was surrendered to Mickaboo from the Santa Cruz shelter in December 2021 along with my buddy Mar. 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.
