Hi, I`m Flupke, a male budgie who came to Mickaboo in April 2022 from an aviary rescue in Santa Clara. As you can see, I`m not afraid of hands! I`ll step up onto your hand for treats! I am with a couple of other budgies in my foster home, but they bonded together and I`m a little lonely even though I`m not alone.
I`m a fairly young guy with lots of curiosity. My days are spent playing with cage toys and exploring a bit outside of my cage. I`m very active and my foster parent says I`m entertaining to watch. I currently eat Harrison`s pellets and Nutri-an cakes with a lot of supplemental veggies every day. I enjoy a wide variety of vegetables and I *love* being hand fed.
Can you help me find a forever home where I can bond with a friend of my own?
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.
