Hi, I`m Shauna, a female budgie surrendered to Mickaboo in January 2022. I am a shy, healthy girl. At my home, I was allowed out of the cage all day, every day, in an enclosed room. My new foster home doesn`t have that kind of room, so I am not out as often as I was there.
I eat a mix of Nutri-An cakes, Roudybush pellets, and a bit of seed. Our whole foster flock eats veggies: romaine, broccoli, carrot, kale, parsley, cilantro, fennel, and carrot tops. My favorites are basil and leafy greens, but I am not fond of fruit. I`m not tame, and I don`t talk. I will, however, come to the side of the cage to eat hand-held millet!
I`m a typical sweet budgie girl who is looking for a new lease on a new forever life. Maybe with you?
Check out my feature video from one of Mickaboo`s online adoption fairs here!
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.
