Hi, I`m Dopey, one of the blue budgies in the photo. I was surrendered to the Santa Cruz shelter in April 2022, with a few of my budgie buddies. The shelter called Mickaboo and my buddies and I are now at the vet to be checked out and treated if necessary. Stay tuned for details!
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.
