Hi, I`m Tweety, a little girl budgie who came to Mickaboo in January 2022 with my gal pal Buddy. My family felt they couldn`t give us enough attention so here we are in a foster home.
We came in eating only seed mix, but we are now eating a mix of Nutri-an cakes, a bit of seed, and some Roudybush pellets and greens. I LOVE fennel greens and wet parsley. I hang in it and take a shower, and then a nibble.
I am used to being let out of the cage for 10-12 hours every day, confined to a bird room. I will eat millet from my foster parent`s hand, but I won`t step up. I am not tame but maybe you have the time and energy to make me a happy forever budgie?

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.
