Hi, I`m Betty. I came to Mickaboo from Solano county animal control in May 2022 with my pal Buddy. I was severely underweight and doing pretty poorly. I was treated by the vet and I`m now doing much better! I am kinda brave and will step up on a stick, but not a hand. Hands are scary! I am happy to stay inside my cage even when the door is wide open. Maybe one of these days I`ll get more adventurous! Would I be a cute addition to 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.
