Adopted on 2020-09-02
Hi, I`m Adair. I was found and brought to the Sonoma Shelter. Mickaboo kindly took me in so I could relax in a nice foster home. I`m still young, but no bars on my head so not a baby, maybe a young adult? I make it hard for humans to know how old I am! Mickaboo is not sure if I`m a gal or a guy yet, so stay tuned for more photographs and more info! My new foster mom says I`m calm and doing well and she thinks I can easily be tamed. Don`t I sound like a great companion for 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.
