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

£1

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.

Personality,
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.

Costs:
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.
