Lemongrass F

Bird ID: 6060
Species: Parakeet
Sex: Female
Sub-Species: Standard Budgie
Adopted on 2022-08-05
Lemongrass is a sweet little female with arthritic knees. She needs large-diameter perches, soft rope perches, and platforms so she can get her weight off her knees when she needs to. She flies well but doesn`t fly very much, possibly because landing is hard on her knees. She has learned to eat a healthy diet of pelleted bird food and fresh green veggies, with some budgie seed mix to round things out, and she has gotten slimmer and healthier n foster care. She will tentatively step up onto a finger if approached slowly and calmly. I`m still happy to join 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.
