Hello! I`m December, a white female budgie brought to Mickaboo from a very large aviary rescue. I went directly to the vet with a fractured lower mandible, an overgrown upper beak, a doughy belly, and feather mites. But I`m getting the care I need from the vet!
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.
