Hello, I`m J Charles and I`m a handsome English budgie. Not too many of my kind show up at Mickaboo! What`s an English budgie, you may ask? They are a type of budgie that is larger than typical budgies. They started out being bred as show birds, with strict standards governing colors, plumage type, and body plan. Their faces and breasts are more thickly feathered than "regular" budgies; sometimes their face feathers that nearly obscure their eyes and beak! Not much is known about me, personally, yet, so stay tuned for details! Right now my foster mom says I`m a sweetie, a bit nervous, but I don`t bite and I`ve got an appetite so lookin` good.
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.
