Hi, I`m Amy. I`m a scared little girl who was found in puddle in the Sacramento area. Nobody knows how I got there, but a kindly volunteer took me in and helped make sure I was safe. I`m not too comfortable with people yet, but my foster mom is kind and gentle, so maybe I`ll realize soon that I`m in a safe and happy place. I eat seed, but only a little, and ignore the veggies in my cage. Oh, but I will eat millet whenever my foster mom caves and puts some in my house in the evening! I`m sure I`ll turn into a sweet companion for a lucky forever home - maybe with you?
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.
