How heartless are people ?

Recommended Posts

It really upsets me seeing how many unwanted parrots end up on classified pages for money!

 

I just spent €404 on a Large cage from Germany and £70 on a Stand for my birds for Christmas since my cage is large enough I have been contacting these people to see if they'd like to donate there bird to me as I would like another

Grey make tiel so bad as I miss my bird Teallie

But these heartless people just say no we want money for it how disgusting is the human race these days?

 

Very upset over this indeed!

I would love another male tiel anyway

If anyone can advise me where to go from here

That be great I hate seeing unwanted birds and I want to help them it's so cruel what these low life's are doing!!!!

Hi Net,

 

I don't know of any rescues near me I registered on Bird line before I got Teallie in 2009 but they told me I would have t pay £20 to become a member for fostering birds

looking at there site I can alot of birds situated far across the UK anyway and there a registered Scotland charity!

 

iv'e been messaging a few of these classified adds saying I would be happy to adopt there bird etc but I think they just want money for them!

if anyone knows of any rescues in the West Midlands near my postcode "DY6 8EW" please please let me know :)

Hi Net, I've not seen many rescues on Facebook

Yet can you point me out some if any? I also took a look at the RSPCA website and noticed Cockatiels available at 4 different branches across the UK the nearest is Nottingham but pretty hard to get to without a car!

 

I did fall in love with this little guy:

http://www.rspca.org.uk/findapet/details/-/Animal/BT/ref/BSA2034237/rehome/

He's really far from me but I'd take him on

In a instance I've asked if they could probably transfer him to a local branch so I could have him

I'm unsure if they will though ????

 

So sad I really want him ????????

The problem is Kerry, too many people take advantage of peoples generosity by taking on free birds to flip them to make money.

Members on here in the past have advised others to charge something to deter people from doing this.

I personally wouldn't advise anyone to give a bird away for free due to opportunists.

Hi, I guess but I always get the impression they end up breeding birds and selling them that way I mean look at all the unwanted birds cos of that?

 

I rang RSPCA Ipswich earlier to try and rehome

BT the Cockatiel however they couldn't help me and said it was too far and stressful for him if they were to re-locate him to a nearby RSPCA near me!

 

So sad I wish I could drive *sob*

None not so ever Milli I really wanted to hepl BT the Cockatiel from Ipswich RSPCA but not even the offer of me paying them petrol money 

to bring him over to me seems tempting enough!

 

ive had a few other responses just telling me they'd keep me in mind of any Cockatiels they have in but thats about it really!

I saw this on pets4homes.co.uk posted about a month ago so don't know if he's for sale still but they haven't taken off the advert. What he needs is company and other bird company, not being put in an avairy. If he's still for sale they might be happy to deliver.

Advert Description : I have a 10month male cockatiel that desperately needs to be in an aviary. He is very unhappy & very hormonal therefore aggressive, protective of his cage, nobody can get anywhere near the cage others he 'attacks' you. He was bought for my granddaughter as a well done for exceeding beyond all expectations in her SATS. She was SO looking forward to being able to train & play with him but cannot go anywhere near him. She wants another bird but wants RIO ( that's his name ) to be happy as she gets upset at not being able to talk to him as she used to. PLEASE, PLEASE give him a chance as he is a beautiful looking bird & will make wonderful babies. Many thanks for reading

Thanks gemstone,

 

Sadly he's a pied cockatiel I saw some of those

At my pet shop the other day selling for £70

There lovely birds, but I really do just want a Normal grey tiel again like Teallie, I'm unsure if Teallie was a different type of grey tiel as he was lighter grey then most of the darker Tiels you see around!

 

Anyway I'm continuing to look everyday and rspcas up and across the country have advised me to look at there site everyday still!

 

I've contacted a lot of those classifieds adds but a lot never do get in touch back which leads me to believe there scams or birds have just gone anyway to other homes!

 

Btw will keep looking if o get knowhete by April I will purchase a grey tiel from Hollybush garden centre in Cannock although I'd rather like a rescued one as they have lovely storylines ????

He's still abit frightened he's in a smaller cage

For a month then he can go with the others ????

 

I bath them weekly I'm not looking forward to bathing him at all ????

 

I named him "Wiley" as he took a While for me to find I should of named him Raptor I think ????

 

He's eating and drinking lots doesn't like it when I change his food bowls or clean him out either ????

 

Got my hands full with that one I think ????

Maybe you'd be better off misting him with a plant sprayer bottle. I find that to stop the bottle getting manky add a couple of drops of f10 disinfectant. Stops mould and bacteria forming in the plant sprayer bottle.  He looks healthy, should think he'll be happier when he's in with the others. Something I always do with new birds is put a spot of ivermeticin on them. You can eith buy a bottle or just the beahpar spot on ones from a pet shop.

Hi Gemstone,

 

I took a gamble and bathed them all individually last week even "Wiley" he was abit nippy but seemed to enjoy a warm bath he even say in the

Duvet and dried of like the others do ????

 

He has 2 more weeks to go I've not seen anything I'm worried about health wise although I noticed he has a bald patch behind his crest is this something in young birds? I remember Missy had this when I got her also although it's covered itself up abit over the years I did read it's likely cause of her mutation (Pearl Cockatiel)

 

I've never used those drops or the F10 disinfectant but I will have a look next time I'm at pet shop, they are clean birds in always cleaning them up from top to bottom so I doubt they will have fleas lol

How is Wiley settling in? Is his nipping calming down any? I think once they learn to lash out with their beaks it can be hard work to undo - not impossible though - just time consuming and lots of gentle handling. One of my caiques is a 'playful' nipper - gets easily over excited and can chomp down a bit to hard. Had a budgie once though - my god he had a bite on him for such a small scrawny individual - wouldn't let go and I would end up dancing around the room with a budgie hanging off my finger. Very painful.

 

Wishing you lots of luck with him ;D .

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.
