Hi, I`m Oz, on the left, a guy budgie who came to Mickaboo with my gal Dorothy from an aviary rescue in March 2022. We are very close and love to snuggle. Our flock went immediately to the vet due to some apparent beak & cere issues. Our liver functions tested normal, so any issues are probably due to a seed-only diet our entire lives. We need daily misting to help clean out our noses and sinuses.

Dorothy is missing all the toes on one foot, so we need a cage with a raised floor to keep her from hurting herself if she falls. In addition to a regular perch, we have a flat platform perch. I like to sit on the swing. We like to be close together. We share the food bowl and sit next to each on the perch other at mealtimes. Once the food is in and cage door closed, we don`t care what our foster parent does in the room. I like romaine lettuce hung from the side of the cage, and will munch it til it is mostly all gone!

Could you find it in your heart to give us a forever home? We`d appreciate it!
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.
