Introductions

Hello all,

We have a lovely :amazon: named Franklin, who is 7 and doing well. We've had him (or her, we just picked one) since he was weaned. Unfortunately, we find ourselves at home less and less these days and wish to re-home him with more attentive parents. It seems this forum does not have a "for sale" category, and advertisements are prohibited, so the question is: Where do you guys recommend we post and/or advertise to find Frank a good home?

Thanks

Are there any Parrot rescues that might take him? You could also list him on your local rehoming page

www.rescueme.com gives a place to tell personalities, likes and dislikes. You can correspond with prospective new humans for your birdy.

Where are you. This forum does not allow buying and selling but rehoming is okay.

Yes, rehoming is fine, it's the selling or bartering that it's not allowed. Why don't you post the general location of where you are (no need to give details but a town or a region within a state would work)? We have members that might be interested in adopting him/her. Aside from that, a good rescue (but make sure it IS a good rescue and not a flipper -lots of those call themselves rescues to get free birds so they can sell them) or, if you know how to do it right, use CL (I suggest you ask A LOT of questions and do a home inspection -you don't want him/her to end up in a hoarder, a collector or a breeder's home.

MJJ, I wish everyone would put their general location in the info box to the left. My town is listed in the box. I have hopes that when I am gone the members of this forum, who already know my birds, will step up and take the birds that they think would do well in their homes.

You cannot buy or sell on this forum but there may be a member near you willing to pay a rehoming fee. I started a thread long ago titled REHOMING for that reason.

I took Rainbow from her last human without paying anything.
I paid a rehoming fee of $300 to get Myrtle. The fee was so low that I was afraid for her. I drove to SC to get her and just in time. She was about to be sold to a breeder.
Most of my Cockatiels were given to me by people who no longer wanted them or by rescues who could not take care of their special needs. The highest fee paid for a Cockatiel was $60. He is crippled and I just could not leave him.

Let us know your location and give us info on your bird's personality. He could be rehomed within the forum. You would be able to read the bragging and know that your bird is loved and cared for instead of flipped by someone outside the forum for profit.

http://www.rescueme.com is also a good location to find a home for him and charge a rehoming fee.
I worry about flippers and people who want parrots just for the sake of having an exotic pet but don't bother to read up and care for it properly.

I agree , without your location we can't help you. We come from all over in here. We also need more details about the bird , you might find someone here who will take him you never know.
