My littles will be gone before me and Oscar will probably grow old with me though he could live into his 80's

I got Lola from a woman who has cancer. She was searching for homes for her babies.

I got my senegal on my 30th and im 33 now, ive made no arrangements for him but after reading some of the horror stories of these parrots falling into the wrong hands he's certainly an incentive to stay healthy and do my best to outlive him. Ive also got a budgie, he's 7 now so hes getting on.

I worry more about the parrot because hes harder to look after as he's a line of sight screamer so unless you raised him hes pretty hard to keep your patience with, im pretty sure he'd be passed from home to home

Well, I have to tell you that my senegals are the quietest of all my birds - by far! Sweetpea talks a lot but never screams and Zoey mostly goes with her kurriki call but only once or twice a day.

I was sold an aviary bird from what i thought was a reputable uk breeder 'parrotcare'. I paid damn good money too for hand reared. After some research i found they done it to others too. Sometimes i dont feel enough for him but all i can do is my best.

My daughter will take my two if something were to happen to me and they already have a relationship with her.

I have been looking into some sanctuaries recently. One is looking quite good but I haven't made a decision just yet.

No, no, senegals are not aviary, they are always companion but, if you were sold a parent-raised bird you do have trouble taming them because they are not imprinted to people so, although they can become your friends, they never develop the deep bond of the hand-fed ones. The other possibility is that the bird was, indeed, hand-fed but that they used gavage instead of syringe -and that messes them up something terrible!

I used to swear by sanctuaries but have changed my mind about them because I now think that pet birds don't really do well without a human.

You've hit the nail on the head, thats what i was trying to say..... Ive managed to make friends with it but its not super tame because it wasnt hand raised. The breeder was an absolute rogue and ive since found im not the only one hes done it to. Unfortunately the real victims are the birds because these dodgy breeders are selling on unmanageable birds and most of the time they are ending up in sanctuaries.

Ive got shredded hands and a burst blood vessel in the ear cause he ripped into my ear without warning but i wont give up lol
