Hi there, I`m Apollo! I came to Mickaboo after being found and turned into the San Jose shelter. I`m a handsome yellow/green guy who appears healthy, can fly, and is eating well. I am happy to step up onto a ladder inside my cage and then onto my foster mom`s finger outside the cage. I have even let her scritch him a bit! I`m timid, but surprisingly friendly! Wouldn`t I be great in 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.
