Hi, I`m Danielle! I was found on a doorstep in Hollister in the middle of 2021. I started laying eggs later that year, and my finder got me a nest box and discarded the real eggs but substituted fake eggs. I was brooding the fake eggs for several weeks and got very protective of them. My finder learned that laying lots of eggs isn`t really good for parrots and surrendered me to Mickaboo in December 2021. I spent some time at the vet to lay another egg but there were no issues, so the vet gave me a lupron shot and I am now in a foster home with several other budgies.

I am relatively tame and I know how to step up. I love to play with toys and to play with other budgies. I also like to come out of the cage to hang out with my foster family, but they have to watch me very carefully because I try to sneak off and find dark cozy corners that could be nesty spots. I need a home with other female budgies (no more guy roomies for me!) and attentive humans who will implement all the skills from Mickaboo`s basic bird care class to manage my hormones and hopefully keep me from laying more eggs. In return, I will delight and entertain you with my playful antics and friendly ways. Might I be right for your flock?

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.
