  1. I would say this will be distressing for her, she may also be at risk of contracting an infection/disease from the other birds. Why is this woman saying she must be there a week? Boarders don't"t dictate a minimum stay.

    What am I supposed to do?

    I'm so sorry to hear of your loses, I know how you feel as I've been in the same boat, I've recently had a couple of cockies and a budgie pass away , When parrot dies it's devastating as you expect them to live for years.

    Humans becoming allergic to parrots,

    Anyone who has more than a handful of birds will benefit from an air filter. Birds are dusty, some species more than others and some people are allergic to the dust and can"t even tolerate being in a room with one bird.

    I saw one fly by on Sunday but not seen one since, don't usually see any yet.
  5. Yes the pets at home cockatiel mix is better than wilkos, that loks more like wild bird seed. I'm not sure who pers at home get their seed from now, might be Bucktons. You should be able to get that spot on beaphar for birds in pets at home. You probably only need to do it the once. It's just soemthing I do for new birds. I cook some frozen mix veg in the microwave for mine, give them some chopped fruit as well, they love it. Just checking you do put in in a seperate dish to the seed?

    Worried where this bird might end up

    The advert had only been on about 24 mins when I put it on here.
  10. Came across this advert, very worrying to see a cockatoo being given away for free. If there's anyone here that could offer him a good home here's the details. http://www.gumtree.com/p/birds/cockatoo-free-to-good-home/1097395531 There's a landline as well from another advert. 01782 341491
  11. I reckon that must have been a hen budgie Milli they tend to bite and not let go! Word of warning over bites, I had to medicate one of my cockatiels last year for an injured foot, she isn't tame and bit me kind of on the base of the fingernail. Didn't really see a wound but It got infected, very painful red and swollen, tried medical peroxide 6% but it didn't work it couldn't get to the infection. Went to the doctors and had to have massive antibitoic capules 4 a day for 4 days, 2000mg a day!!! Be careful with bites, don't let them become infected.

    How do I rehome?

    How do I rehome?

    How's the situation going? There is something you coudld try, a light wing clip on the aggresive ones, not everyone will agree but it's better than rehoming or a vets bill. I'm not talking taking their flight away just slowing them down a bit. It often takes the aggresion away or reduces it.
  14. The bald patch is often something lutinos have, I wouldn't worry about it though. Glad he's setlting in and he's getting used to being handled.

    rehoming Pidgee, african grey parrot, 10 years old

    That's a really good post parrotalert, agree 100 %. I've also seen recently adverts posted from people who have rehomed their birds and very much regret it. Looking for the birds years later, lost touch with the people who had them or find they have been sold on again.
