Hi, I`m Snowy, a (probably) female budgie surrendered to Mickaboo in January 2022 due to family changes. I came in eating only millet, seeds, and greens, and have transitioned to a healthier diet of Nutri-an cakes, romaine, and cilantro. I can be a little bit protective of the food dish, but multiple food dishes in the cage take care of any territory problems.

I LOVE toys, especially the kind with raffia. I am quiet almost all of the time, tho I have been a little bit more vocal since budgie Spinach showed up in my foster pack.

I am kinda tame and will step up on a finger consistently and enthusiastically eat seeds from a hand. My foster mom thinks my wings must have previously been clipped because I wait and call for her to come pick me up even though I fly well. I also wait to leave the cage until she puts her hand in for me to step up! I enjoy listening to music. I am a good flier and mostly do loops and land right back on my cage.

I quietly sing to myself all the time, which is pretty cute, but my foster mom thinks maybe I am lonely despite having the other birds around. I definitely need to go to a forever home that WANTS to interact with me and make me a happier budgie. Might that be YOU?
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.
