Hi, I`m Sleepy. I was surrendered to the Santa Cruz shelter in April 2022 along with a few of my budgie buddies. The shelter called Mickaboo and my buddies and I were checked out by the vet. I am now in a foster home and ready for my 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.
