Hi, I`m Stardust, a girl budgie who came to Mickaboo from an aviary rescue in March 2022. Our entire flock went immediately to the vet due to some beak & cere issues. I need daily misting to help clean out my nose and sinuses.

I am currently living with my foster pal Bitsy and we are both very hand shy. We tend to stay close together, although I am a little braver and tend to go a little further afield. i don`t play with any toys. We didn`t have any growing up and kinda still don`t get what they are for.

I do have a malformed beak, probably due to being on a seed-only diet until I came to Mickaboo. My beak does not impact my eating! Although my foster mom offers us veggies every day, neither Bitsy or I have started eating them. Sometimes she covers our Nutri-An cakes with lettuce, but we are smart enough to move it off so we can eat the good stuff! In addition to the Nutri-an cakes, we get pellets and a bit of seed, and millet occasionally as a treat. We both definitely LOVE our food. If she changes the cage tray paper right after she feeds us, we will ignore her completely even though we are skittish.

I`m a spunky girl and would be so happy to have a loving forever home. Maybe with 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.
