Adopted on 2020-09-28
Hi, I`m Sphene. I came to Mickaboo from the shelter in Santa Clara, and they asked Mickaboo to take care of me. I was named after a beautiful greenish yellow gemstone that is characterized by lots of bright fire. That`s me. Unlike most female budgies, I like to sing. Not very loud, but my foster mom says it`s very pretty. Wouldn`t I be happy 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.
