Hi, there, I`m Everest. Aren`t I a handsome guy? I came to Mickaboo from the San Jose shelter. My foster mom says I`m very sweet! I step up, will eat seeds from her fingers, and like cheek scritches. I only eat seeds, but she`s trying to transition me to a healthier diet with Nutri-cake and Harrison`s pellets in my bowl. So far she haven`t tricked him into trying them, though! Maybe YOU would be successful when I join 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.
