Bird ID: 7210
Species: Parakeet
Sex: Male
Sub-Species: Standard Budgie
Adopted on 2022-08-04

Hi, I`m Kiwi, a male budgie surrendered to Mickaboo in January 2022 due to family changes. I came in eating only millet, seeds, and greens, but I`ve transitioned to a healthier diet of Nutri-an cakes, romaine, and cilantro!

I LOVE toys, especially the kind with raffia. If I am awake, I am singing and chattering 100% of the time. I like to talk directly to my toys, perches, and to my friend Snowy with my beak right up against whatever I`m talking to. My foster parent thinks it`s hilarious!

I have started stepping up when my foster mom says "Step up!" I am not very consistent, but we`re working on it. I am a cheerful budgie and a good flier who enjoys doing loops of the room, exploring new things, and landing right back on the cage.

Wouldn`t I be kinda 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.
