I am a young, financially stable, clean-living and animal-loving woman who recently missed out on an adoption opportunity with a Moluccan cockatoo (another couple took the bird, who I had been visiting for several weeks before I got there.)

I'm interested in meeting some new birds to see if we are compatible. I understand the enormous responsibility these pets can be, and am looking to give a bird (of any age!) a loving home.

If you are interested in re-homing your moluccan or umbrella cockatoo, please email me! NO BREEDERS please - I'm looking for a pre-owned bird. I am NOT a pet store, nor do I have any intention of re-selling, and will sign any adoption contract. "Problem" birds will be considered, but I will insist on a clean bill of health.

Thanks!

I understand your desire to find a "re-homeable" bird, but did you realize that the bird you may find came from one of those "BREEDERS" you speak of? Or maybe the issue is one of price? The vet bills and ongoing care for a "rescued" bird can well exceed the price of a young bird sold by a "BREEDER".
Bob W-who is, can you guess a small scale "BREEDER".

She's probably looking for 'pet quality' rather than the traditional "breeder" where the bird probably was not encouraged to interact with people like one that came from a pet situation would. Course a rescued bird might not be any easier to work with than one that's a "breeder" and its possible that a rehomed one will have behavioral problems that would need to be addressed same as you'd find in a bird that was in a breeding situation. That being said, a lot of people don't realize 'pet qualities' are sometimes very prominent in breeding birds. Regardless the woman apparently decided she didn't want a baby but still would like a people friendly bird.

At least that's how I read it.

How about giving a good home to one of the "lesser" birds... like a cockatiel or a budgie... heck! even finches get dumped at rescue centers now and then. Or does it HAVE to be a cockatoo?

BTW... if anybody out there knows of a producing pair of BP2, I'm willing to give them a good home. Actually I saw a couple of them at a local pet shop... could someone help me rescue them? They were kept in a horribly large cage, cluttered with pieces of half chewed wood.. 3! 3! bowls of different food and the pet shop employee kept teasing them by dumping their water bowl and then giving them another one a few times a day... could someone help!

It's hard to find a budgie or some finches at those rescue places, at least where I live ... Anyone can afford to buy those, but after reading how often they're overbred and forgotten, I know I'm considering buying them from a rescue place. It is rather unfair how tiny birds get forgotten.

LOL, Hey I'm once again looking to "adopt" one of those big blue giants after watching that special on Macaws the other night. Laurie was supposed to buy one and let me keep it here, but she is taking forever, so I would love to "rescue" one, of "pet" quality of course. I guess I better "rescue" another Kings Cage also since I don't know if Charlie would be willing to share his. Do these guys need Palm nuts in captivity too? If so I better "rescue" a few #50 bags of them along with the bird, the cage, the Vet check, and so on.
I'll be waiting by the e-mail box.

You mean to tell me you never got the Hy I shipped to you?!?! Oh wow! Wonder where it is. Oh well, I'm sure it'll turn up soon Alex. (yeah, and the check's in the mail, the porsche is in the shop and...um, well never mind that 3rd one)

LOL, that's ok, since I will be adopting another Kings cage along with the bird, when yours shows up they can share the cage.

Over the years, I haven't read all that many RPB posts from "rescuers" who want to adopt/rescue discarded budgies, tiels and finches and it ticks me off big time. I guess your status as a "rescuer" is elevated when you can tell your friends and family you rescued a cockatoo or a macaw or an Amazon.
I don't really "rescue" birds, but I have friends who own a pet store and every once in a while they get birds dumped at their store. Over the last few years I've "rescued" budgies and lovebirds ... birds that they can't sell to the public. Some of these birds were not treated very well by their previous owners, weren't too healthy, were older, had behavioural problems, etc. etc.
I've worked real hard with these little guys and although quite a few of them remain "bitey" and not too friendly, I know that I've done what other "rescuers" wouldn't bother to do because these birds that came into my home were inexpensive birds, not as impressive as their bigger cousins and new ones can be had for a minimal price.

Opening up your heart and your home to a $20 budgie can be just as rewarding as "rescuing" a $2,000 cockatoo and in most cases, the problems in trying to rehabilitate a smaller bird are not as complicated or overwhelming. JMHO.
