Hi, I`m Opal the one on the right. I was surrendered to Mickaboo by someone who rescued me from a Petco. I am bonded with my guy Peridot. We were treated at the vet for bacteria, and that has cleared up. We eat a mix of pellets and seed, and are now in a normal weight range, which we weren`t when we arrived - I was quite heavy at neraly 60g! We`ll nibble at greens, but not chow down. Me and my guy can be quite vocal. Wouldn`t we make a lovely 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.
