Adopted on 2021-10-29
Hi, there, I`m Effie! I came to Mickaboo in August 2021 via the San Jose Animal Care Center. My foster parent thinks I am still fairly young. I am still very unsure when hands enter my cage to feed me or clean up after me. I am currently living with my budgie pal Amie. She is very calm, and that has helped me to calm down. Maybe I`ll learn from her that people aren`t all bad! I love eating and playing with parsley or fennel hanging in my cage. I will eat broccoli like it`s an ice cream cone! I am a bath taker! My foster mum added a little tub to my cage after I decided to hop in my water bowl for a bath. Would you please consider taking me in to 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.
