Little by little they are getting adopted out. It does my heart good to see how many stepped up to help in this.

Yes... a shame they did not think of sending a large number of them to a rescue in the States, though. I think they would have been able to adopt out more of them faster if they had.

Yes they would have, but there are a lot of problems with taking parrots to the USA. The isolation period alone is frightening to a parrot. Since the parrots had illnesses too, they may have even been denied. i really dont now if they had thought about it or not though.

I don't think there is quarantine required between Canada and USA but, even if there was, I doubt they would feel isolated if there is a large number of them together. But, even if there were, I doubt it would have made that big a difference to them. I mean, a rescue is not a home so it's not as if they were leaving beloved humans or companions behind or staying by themselves... The medical issues would have been a problem but I am sure there were lots of birds that were given the green flag in health within days of their moving them out of Coombs.
