Hi, I`m Turnip! I came to Mickaboo from a huge aviary rescue, over 50 budgies all at once! I am blue and white, and came to my new foster home with a sore on my cere, but it is healing. I tend to be a bit more of a loner, but I do hang with Artichoke and Spinach. I don`t know why I am more shy. It may be because I got picked on and my cere was injured, or I got extra handling at the vet so am a little more wary. I enjoy chirping. A lot of us fosters have been in this foster home for 2 weeks now, and we are settling in very well. We are good eaters (although I tend to be last to the food bowl), and share our bowl without too much quibbling. We like greens - various types of lettuce, parsley and fresh carrot tops. We are learning about the toys in our house. We have a pair of swings, and mom saw that we can actually swing in unison. We have a boing perch that is fun to run up and down, and we use it to swing ourselves over to a other toys. We also love the set of rings to climb through. Don`t you need an entire group of baby budgies to make your happy home sing?

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.
