Hi there, I`m Johnny. I originally came to Mickaboo in September 2021, got adopted, and am now back at Mickaboo through no fault of my own!
It doesn`t look like I would be a good fit for small children. Although I do not respond with total panic flight when my cage is moved or rearranged, I am timid and definitely not tame. Maybe ok with older kids or kids that are very calm and patient. I eat healthy pellets!
Check out my video from the October 2021 virtual adoption fair!
Don`t you think I would be cute in 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.
