Hi, I`m Sloane and I might be a girl and I might be a boy. It`s too early to tell, cause I am a baby and my cere is not my grown-up color yet. I came with a few pals from an aviary rescue directly to Mickaboo. They took me to the vet for a checkup, and now I`m hanging with my gals at a Mickaboo foster home. There are swings in the cage and each night I sleep on one of them. I am active and chirpy, like to fly around a lot more than the other gals, like the swing and mirror, and I enjoy nibbling on wood toys hanging in the cage, spinach, lettuce, hearts of romaine. I`m not TOO fearful of hands in the cage but so I don`t yet want to be handled or touched. Need a gender-neutral baby in your life? Pick me!
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.
