Adopted on 2022-07-27
Hi, I`m Yael. I came to Mickaboo in June 2022 via the Santa Cruz shelter. I am a "special needs" baby budgie. I have bowed tibia bones, which means my legs are deformed. I need a cage with a flat, towel and flannel-covered surface. I sometimes look like a little green penguin, lying on my flannel, but I can climb the side of my cage! My only perch is a sisal rope on the floor. I would do best in an experienced adoptive home.s
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.
