Hello! I`m Mustard, a green boy budgie who came to Mickaboo in December 2020. My mama loved me but had to move far away and couldn`t bring me. I was with my buddy Scoopette but sadly she went over the rainbow bridge recently.
My foster family has helped me change from free feeding to meal feeding, and I am eating healthy pellets and dried greens now. I have discovered that a millet sprig is scrumptious as long as the fingers holding it are far enough away.
I enjoy gentle showers and the little ditties our foster family sings during morning, nighttime and bathtime routines, especially the night song which brings out my happy-sleepy eyes. When I call for my foster-mom, she gives a call back and I often acknowledge her with a soft, cute call.
I would love to keep you company at 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.
