Overweight, Female Pet Budgie looking for my Forever Home. in Liverpool


My Foster Mum has named me The Boss, because I am very dominating, bossy, with other budgies when there is fresh food. I was one of three budgies taken in on 26th of July by my Foster Mum. We had been given up by a breeder as he could not breed on us. He told my foster mum that I crush my eggs ("egg-crusher", he said). I came without tail feathers and they have not grown back.

I am very happy in my own company and Foster Mum thinks I have the most beautiful singing voice, I came from an Aviary so I can imitate garden birds. I am only aggressive around food and will chase other birds away, even tip them off the perch, until I have eaten first. I don't attack other birds but I should not be rehomed with smaller, or vulnerable, birds. My best friend at the moment is a female Show Budgie (Exhibition Budgie).

Physical Health:
Foster mum took us to the specialist avian vet (Northwich) on the 28th of July, and I was weighed (66g) and we were all three treated with an antiparasitic. Since then we have also had a 5 day course of antibiotics, due to suspected colitis, and we have now just finished 30 days on Avian Probiotics (since the 24th of September).

Can you rehome me?:
Can be rehomed as an only bird.
I need to lose a bit more weight.
I can be rehomed with other, larger birds, but am very happy on my own too, singing all day.
I have full access to flying outside the cage but I don't like flying because I am not very good at braking or steering when I fly.
I am about two years old.

Please come have a look at me first, when Covid19 guidelines allow this to happen.
We live in Liverpool City Centre.

Foster Mum does not want any money. Please donate to an animal charity of your own choice instead, any amount, over, or under £20. I do not come with my own cage, transport cage available to borrow.
