Thank you so much for your review. It is so encouraging. Also, thanks for adding that extra info, they're really important details too.Awesome, you posted the article!!! I just went and reviewed it. Great information, thank you so much for posting it. I hope everyone reads it.
Thank you for contributing your opinion. Do you have any parrots? I like the idea of adopting rescue parrots. I have three galahs I'm fostering currently. Being rescues, they are quite difficult and I don't know a lot about their past, but it's very rewarding when we finally have breakthroughs.I am completely against breeding parrots and purchasing them from stores. I would only adopt parrots, and even then I wish every parrot could be in the wild. Sadly that is not the case and they cannot be released, so I just wish that those who are willing to dedicate the time to caring for them can give them the best lives possible.
I had a parakeet for ten years and I lost him in September. I currently have a single zebra finch whose mate passed away and now my parakeet his friend. I'll be getting him a new friend soon. I volunteer at a parrot rescue currently and would like to get a parrot but I want to be completely ready to dedicate my time to the bird, especially one who could have a difficult past. they are the most intelligent incredible animals and they make me so happy. I want all of them to have the best lives possible so it makes me really happy to know so many others care about them as well.Thank you for contributing your opinion. Do you have any parrots?

I am so sorry for your loss. They are so smart and sweet, its so sad when they have emotional issues. What you did to care for him is incredible <3I had to put down my baby "Moose" a Goffins Cockatoo. We moved to a new house this year, a big change for a bird. He began self mutilation. He developed a skin infection from his mutilation.. He was in a "cone of shame" for almost 3 months as his skin needed to heal from all the damage he did to himself.. We hired a bird behavior therapist, to help us work with him. We had a home visiting aviary vet. There was nothing we wouldnt do for his care.
Unfortunately, the cone stopped him from picking at his bandaged legs and belly, but he got to his neck inside the cone, he got straite to his own trachea.. Vet said if they put artificial skin there to seal the hole, he will just pick at it again.. So our only choice, was heaven..
This pit me in a state of depression for almost 3months. He was just a baby (2yrs old). He still had so much to learn and I still had so much love to give him. He would go camping with us and go Moose searching to tale picture of wild Moose in the mountains, and than nothing.
I know have finches to fill the void. As Moose really was my homes entertainer.
It's crazy how a normal life change for humans, can be devistating to a parrot.View attachment 2006751View attachment 2006752
