Hi, I`m Cloud. I was surrendered with my pals by someone who couldn`t take care of us anymore. We rely on each other, and even though there are multiple food bowls in our cage, we all eat together at a large food tray. I`m not afraid to use my body to push everyone out of my way - watching us maneuver for space on that one tray is daily entertainment for our foster family! We came to Mickaboo eating only seed (boo!) but have made a full transition to pellets. We love broccoli, spinach, celery, brussels sprouts, carrot strips, strawberries & pineapple. We ignore the bath bowl but mostly enjoy spritzes with the spray bottle. For me, it depends on my mood; I`ll generally tolerate two or three spritzes before climbing to the other side of the cage.
Did I mention that I am the queen of my little flock? I am top bird and very food motivated. However, I`ve lost weight since being in my foster home and I`ve hit a healthy budgie weight at last. My foster parent wishes I`d fly more to exercise, but I insist on either climbing everywhere or jumping. I like jumping down and cleaning up leftover tidbits of food on the cage floor. Shadow is clearly my man, and though we all interact, it is Shadow that i call to and want to be near. We are fine with dogs who don`t get too close and who scavenge the seeds scattered around our cage. Our little flock would love a forever home together - might you be able to bring us 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.
