Hi, I`m Happy, one of the blue budgies in the photo. I was surrendered to the Santa Cruz shelter in April 2022, with a few of my budgie buddies. The shelter called Mickaboo and my buddies and I are now at the vet to be checked out and treated if necessary. We all had some of the common budgie virus` but are all slowly settling into foster homes. My new foster mom says I have the cutest beeps! More to come!
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.
