Bert F

Hi, I`m Bert, a female budgie who was surrendered to Mickaboo in January 2022. I am currently at the vet due to a severe leg injury. I also have a mass that shows up in xrays. It`s not an egg, but the vet is trying Lupron to see if it shrinks. It is likely I will be a special needs budgie and need a modified cage set up. Stay tuned for updates!
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.
