Hello! I`m August, a little yellow girl budgie brought to Mickaboo from a very large aviary rescue. I came in with my upper beak torn off (probably by a larger bird in the aviary), my lower beak overgrown, a missing toe tip on one foot, a hyperkeratotic cere, and feather mites. What a lot of problems for a little girl to have.
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.
