Hi, I`m Broccoli! I came to Mickaboo from a huge aviary rescue, over 50 budgies all at once! My foster mom says I`m the bravest of the bunch! I love my food and I watch the food bowl carefully to make sure Mom feeds us all correctly! I am the first to the food dish....sometimes before the dish is put in the cage! I ate millet that Mom held to the bars, and have kissed her finger! Wouldn`t I be fun to tame? 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, 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. Me, pick me! The baby budgie who will make you happy!
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.
