  1. Thank you all so much for your good wishes. I'm delighted to be able to tell you that after another night and day searching we had 3 sightings today and found her tonight on the roof of an Indian restaurant. She is very clever and was heading in the direction of home, she has flown at least 8 miles (that we know of) today. She had almost lost her voice but started croaking when she heard me and flew straight down for a cuddle. She's gone back into baby mode and has eaten loads and is settling down now for a sleep. Thank you all for your support and advice, it really has been appreciated. The best New Year we could have wished for!
  2. I've notified all of the vets within 40 miles, the RSPCA, wildlife hospitals and rescue, the police, we've put up posters, she's been in the paper and on the radio. I've put her on parrotalert and registered her with John Hayward, birdline and with all of the lost and found registers I can find. I have had a possible sighting in a village 10 miles away but the gentleman didn't phone me until it was dark and he saw her at lunchtime (if it was her, really hoping it wasn't a buzzard). I've been there for the last 5 hours but she isn't answering me so will try again at first light - praying it was her and she hasn't moved off again. Thanks for all of your advice, I'll let you know how we get on.
  3. Thanks for all of your support. There still haven't been any sightings of her and we've been out night and day looking. We are offering a reward for her safe return and would be so grateful if people could keep their eyes peeled - because of the wind she could have travelled miles, thank you.
  4. Please help - our beloved Greenwing, Evie, escaped this morning and we still haven't been able to find her despite searching all day. We have registered her with Parrotalert, all of the vets, the police, RSPCA, wildlife rescue, Shropshire radio have put out an appeal and the Shropshire Star newspaper is featuring one tomorrow. We live in Westbury, Shropshire and it has been very windy here all day so she might have travelled a considerable distance. We would be so grateful if everyone could keep an eye out for her please, we are worried sick about her.
  5. Hi Rosie, I'm sorry I've never heard of Petz in Great Barr but I'm not very familiar with Birmingham so not much help I'm afraid. It might be worth asking your vet if they could recommend anywhere?

    Meet Ollie

    He's a very beautiful boy, congratulations. It sounds like he's finally landed on his feet.
  7. Hi Mandy, Why wouldn't you recommend BBB? I've been there a few times and never seen anything to concern me. The staff are very experienced, they have regular vet visits with an excellent avian vet and although the care isn't on a one to one basis neither is it at a boarding kennel or cattery. I don't mean to be funny, was just wondering what you had seen there that worried you?
  8. I don't know if this would be too far for you but Becks Bird Barn near Telford have a fantastic boarding facility and are very experienced. Their details are: Beck's Bird Barn Windy Oak Farm Ellerdine, Telford, Shropshire, TF6 6RN Tel: 01952 541244. http://www.becksbirdbarn.co.uk Hope this is of some use

  10. Thanks, I think so too but I'm biased!
  11. Ahh, lovely pictures of Bob in the sunshine. I got some good ones of Evie too recently Cheeky madam has learnt how to turn the taps on [/img]
  12. Just thought I would add my tuppence worth because we bought a Greenwing baby, Evie, last October and are first time Macaw owners also. Evie is nearly a year old and an absolute joy. She is extremely affectionate, very intelligent and now rules the roost. I noticed you mentioned earlier about Macaws often not flying even when unclipped - Evie flys everywhere so beware! However she can be deafening, we don't have any neigbours but you can clearly hear her when she is shouting down the lane from the house. My partner works from home so she is not left on her own for long and has a Java tree in the office filled with toys. Her boredom threshold is pretty low and I'm not sure she would cope well with being left on her own all day. Good luck with whichever Macaw you choose, if your journey is anything like ours it will be a sharp learning curve but definitely worth itjavascript:emoticon(':D')
  13. Hi Thanks for all of the welcoming messages, it sounds like I've been a bit premature hoping she will be home by the beginning of October. The breeder did say it should be October by the time she is weaned but she hasn't given me a date. We've been going to see her every week and have got everything ready for her here so it seems to be dragging by.
  14. Hi I'm Chele from Shrewsbury and am waiting for a Greenwing girl to be weaned from a local breeder. She is 12 weeks old now so we may have her home by October. We're very excited and really pleased to have found such a friendly forum x
