Hi there, I`m Nora. I came to Mickaboo in March 2021 via the Berkeley Animal Shelter. I was looking a little fluffed up there, so Mickaboo took me right to the vet`, who thought I might have a low-grade respiratory infection. So I`m on meds twice a day for now. Luckily for a stray budgie, I show no sign of AGY! Now I`m nestled in a foster home with kale, water, millet and an Avi-cake a hospital cage. I`m being very quiet so far. Hopefully my budgie voice will sing out soon!
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.
