Re: 300 cockatiels looking for a home

Hope they all find good homes. Might have to transport many to the lower 48 for best response.

I can understand how attached you can get to the babies you raise and I realised it's not something I can do emotionally.
I think someone should have stopped this person sooner.

Wonder if all the Cockatiel "dust" contributed to the owners death.

It could have with that many, I could only imagine the particles in the air. The air quality had to be horrible very bad for respiratory system. Wonder if they even were using a air cleaner and needed way more then one? Someone sure have stop this person a while ago as now going to be hard to re-home them as well. As likely doubt any are tamed. I have 5 cockatiels and 3 cockatoos and use 2 IQAir health pro air purifier and have to clean the pre filter every week and shock on amount of stuff collected, it fill up the canister on vacuum and clogs the HEPA filter in vaccum. So 300 can only imagine.

If I get any babies as have a breeded pair of cockatiels will likely sell, or re-home babies once weaned. As cute as they are, it is hard to give them up, but you can only handle and have time for so many? That why they sure have re-homed them way before it was that high as they need attention as well and 300 no way they could have received the attention and care they needed and all they did was hoard them at that point.
Will One bird also be a health hazard? I am concerned because it is my Mother who spends maximum time with my cockatiel.
And if so what steps can be adopted to reduce health risks.

One won't be bad, but to reduce dust and dander, you can give the bird a bath every 2 to 3 days with shower, or spray bottle, or let them get into a bowl with water, worst case at least one every week as their skin can dry out. A HEPA air purifier without ionizer as you don't want to create ozone in small space, just get a mechanical based air purifier with HEPA filter, will work. Look at room size and pick one for that size. For smaller rooms the Honeywell True HEPA, or holmes work great for under 400 square foot, anything bigger usaully go IQ air, or Austin air, or Blue air. Rabbit Air is also good as well.

What ever you do don't don't enclose the cage with Plexiglass, or ETC, as then the bird has to breath particle in and not good for them. Yes I seen people do this as some are very sensitive to dust and dander.

I'll help a few if they're being shipped. I hate animals being shipped but if you can't find homes.
