Hello fellow bird lovers,
My husband and I have two parrots, one Meyers and one Senegal. Wonderful Pets, great talkers, and anyone who has birds knows that they are loud and messy. But, as with all new couples, we are trying to have a baby, we already have a dog, and we both work lots of hours, and it is almost impossible to give them to much needed attention.
We would be very flexible with cost, to a very good home. I am trying to find a stable home, someone that has proven bird experience, and would be within a days drive from Rochester, NY that we could take them to you. I would like to keep them together, if possible. They are great friends, and my Senegal has never lived alone. If you are interested, please email me at the number below, removing the spam from the address. Thanks.

The number one reason people give up their birds..
The best thing for the birds is to contact a local bird club. They usually have a bird adoption program and can match the birds up with a qualified caretaker.

excuses and myths. People like to fool themselves into believing Parrots need much more attention then they actually do. Other than a little handling everyday parrots they get all the attention they need in the course of one's usual day. They aren't particularly messy (a cage with seed guard takes care of that) nor are most loud either. I live in a condo and before that a townhouse with an AG, U2 and M2 and never had any complaints. My condo association is instituting new rules pertaining to dogs because they are loud, defecate and urinate all over the place, etc.
Thank you for straighting me out, because for the last 7 years I have not had to clean my walls, my floors and my carpets every week. And I haven't had ANY complaints about the noise either. Every night my Meyers screams for me and does NOT stop. Thanks everyone for all of your support in trying to find a good home for them.
Never mind.

Newsflash, toots: it ain't our problem, and you posted in the wrong NG (this ain't a marketplace NG). Besides, your reasons for wanting to get rid of da boids will be the same issues you'll face wid a rugrat 'round da house. Ya gonna get rid of it* when da time comes and finger foods are splattered all over the dinning room and da brat's screaming in da grocery store cuz ya won't buy *it some Cocoa Puffs? Just be honest, say you're sick and tired of da boids, ya can't stand it anymore, and ya need ta dump 'em. This b.s. of "I'm going to be a new mommy someday" is crap.

So, when you got the birds you never considered you would want a kid? I think the "loud and messy" is the real reason for getting rid of the birds.

If your neighbors have been complaining about the noise your birds make, won't they also complain about the noise a baby makes? Also, birds generally shut up at night whereas a young baby can start crying any time of the day/night, and human adults are "programmed" to be wakened by the sound of a child crying.
As for mess, the room my birds are in needs to be vacuumed daily. When I looked after my niece when she had started walking, she had to be followed around cleaning up after her - and she (IMO of course) is a very well behaved child. My birds have got fruit onto walls (pomegranate was the worst) but have never drawn on them with crayons as children often do. Seed is a lot easier to get off the carpets than the disgusting messes children make. As for "poop" just wait until a diaper starts leaking. Bad memory alert :-(
Never mind.

'Sok I never do.

If your Meyers screams every night it's simply bad training on your part. Here's hoping you do a better job with the baby
