Hi, I`m Dandylion. I came to Mickaboo in March 2022 when my parent had to surrender me and my flock due to her own health issues.
The vet says I am a feisty one for sure! I`d been painfully plucked by one of my buddies, but I am improving! The vet gave me some antibiotics and told my foster parents to use aloe vera gel with water in a spray bottle to spray my head and feet morning and night. I act like a bully sometimes, but really I am just trying to protect myself from bigger, badder budgies.
Currently I am best buds with Poppy, another foster in my current home. We hang out with other fosters Iris and Snowdrop. We all get LOTS of flight time. We are pretty good about going home to bed, especially with a little millet in the cage as incentive to return home.
It would be nice if you could bring me - or both of us - to 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.
