Hi, I`m Skyler! I`m a baby budgie who came to Mickaboo via the Santa Cruz shelter in February 2022. I had a sinus infection, but I took some medicine and have a vet`s clean bill of health now. I am a very calm and mellow budgie. I sing a little bit and like to fly around outside my cage, but mostly I`m content sitting in my favorite spot inside my cage. I eat Nutri-cakes and sometimes I`ll nibble on green leaves like lettuce and spinach, but I could learn to be more adventurous with food. I put up a fuss when my foster human tries to grab me, but once I`m held I don`t squirm. I will protest loudly though. I think with some patience and training, I could learn to step up and be a great budgie companion! Maybe you`ve got the time to devote to me?
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.
