Species: Parakeet
Sex: Female
Sub-Species: Standard Budgie
Adopted on 2023-01-23

Hi, I`m Snow White, big surprise, the white budgie in the photo. I was surrendered to the Santa Cruz shelter in April 2022 with my pal Dopey. We`re learning to step up and fly to a finger for millet. We eat a diet of Harrison`s pellets, chia seeds, and Nutri-An cakes, and we love shredding fresh green vegetables like lettuce and parsley.

I`m an acrobatic little bird; you might find me hanging upside down while I play with and chew my toys. Fun fact about me - because of my color mutation (recessive pied), I will have dark eyes like a baby budgie all my life. Don`t be fooled - I`m not a baby.

Wouldn`t we be 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.
