Hi, I am budgie Quill, a beautiful white female. I came to Mickaboo from SFACC where someone brought me after I was found in SF. Something traumatic had happened, and I lost all my tail feathers. Someone from Mickaboo picked me up, and I was taken to a vet and checked out. I was on pain meds for several days, but was otherwise said to be healthy. The person who picked me up at ACC turned out to be my foster Mom! I have been with her for several weeks, and my tail feathers are growing in just fine. And I`ve gained back some of the weight I lost. While I don`t step up, I am not afraid of hands. Mom says I am her sweet baby even though I don`t know how old I am. I`d love to live with other budgies. Wouldn`t you like to adopt me and make me your forever bird?
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.
