I volunteer at the Austin Wildlife Rescue and we have recently gotten in two female parakeets. I was going to bring the first one home, but then the second came in and they bonded, so I don't want to separate them.
On Saturday morning, I will be running them over from the rescue to Zookeeper Exotic Pets
, run by a man who raises birds. They accept rescue birds such as these little guys, and I just wanted to make it known to anyone in the Austin area that they will be available for adoption.
The first female who came in is about 5 months old and apparently quite tame, although I never had the chance to interact with her much myself. The second one I believe is a little older and larger. Both are blue, but the larger one his sort of piebald and has a lot of white on her. They are a cute little pair.
If you are interested, you can call Zookeeper at (512) 453-8800. Alternatively, if you live in Austin and have lost a parakeet of this description, call the Austin Wildlife Rescue at (512) 472-9453.
