Hello! I`m Mustard and I`m about 2.5 yrs old. My mama loved me but had to move far away and couldn`t bring me. I`ve been with my buddy Scoopette as long as I can remember. My foster has helped me change from free feeding to meal feeding, and I let Scoopette go first when meals arrive. I`m suspicious of veggies, but have discovered that a millet sprig is scrumptious as long as the fingers holding it are far enough away. I`m shy of hands and am fully flighted -- although my mama used to keep my wings clipped pre-covid. Scoopette and I enjoy the mirror perch in our cage and chattering with the birdies in the mirror. I used to take nice baths for my mama but I won`t at my foster home, so I get a gentle shower that I find delightful. I`m a handsome boy - chatty and fairly cautious. I`d love to keep you company at my new 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.
