Parrots for sale craigslist

I needed a new Avian to live with us – we had rescued a parrot who was about to die of malnutrition. So I began searching craigslist for a new companion. There’s seemingly nothing new under the sun in that world, but I found the perfect friend for the perfect price. The Craigslist El Dorado was the story of birds and the pet mecca of the capitalist development of China. They’re always out there.

HOME

I got my macaw Seamus off a Facebook post asking for a new home (I joined the group for one day, saw his new post and immediately left that local bird page once I picked him up. I couldn’t stand seeing all the birds that needed homes). He was in awful shape. I wouldn’t change getting him for anything, but it is very much a game of unknowns. Vet bills for neglected birds, even ones with no outwardly obvious concerns, can rapidly skyrocket.

PET

Labell..the dog comparison is a good one for some people, but many don't even understand actually having a dog. I have GSDs, and my dominate male is my baby boy. He is my competitive obedience dog, but he is high drive. About once a year he decides to test me and make sure I can still handle the pack. I normally walk away from that bleeding, but my role is secured. If he doesn't get enough exercise he will also turn. I always have people telling me "I wish I had a dog JUST like that", and I tell them..no you don't. Just because they don't understand the work involved. Its not something for everyone, but the few people that are suited for it become hooked [emoji6]. CL pet classifieds just depress me, so I don't know why I still look. Many are scams and it is infuriating, but the right Mac will come around. I'm in no hurry, but if I find the right one, then GREAT. I've seen a lot lately too. Could it be due to spring time, and possible behavior issues associated with it? (Source: www.parrotforums.com)

It happens from budgies to cockatoos. "I got it for my kid but he isn't taking care of it/is bored with it/is scared of it/doesn't like the noise/plays too rough/I'm punishing him by selling it" I would say is the excuse I get more often than not, with "he needs lots of time an attention that we can't give him, he needs a forever home" is second and "I want $80 for this one or two year old budgie (adjust the scale for different species) because we really want him to go to a good home" usually follows. The truth would be "we are trying to squeeze every penny we put into this impulse buy back out of him after two years of neglect." Makes me so mad! I see them all over Facebook on the buy-sell-trade and local pet pages as well. Make a commitment or don't, but don't give me some line about how you "love" the animal you never touch, or charge me an arm and a leg for. "Used" bird who now needs to be rehabbed when I could buy a "new" properly raised baby for less. People make me sick. (Source: www.parrotforums.com)

PAGE

I’m in a similar-ish boat in that I’d like to adopt another bird but there’s some major timing and life situation stuff, including a job change and a move, that need to happen before I can even begin to think about it realistically. So why then do I check my local rescue’s adoptables page at least once a week? I’m not helping a bird by doing this. I get frustrated with myself sometimes. (Source: forums.avianavenue.com)
