I'd be happy to forward a PM for you!

Re: Rehoming B&G Macaw

I love this! Bug n Flock, reaching out and wanting to bring a complex macaw into your home is commendable!

Noelohwell has mentioned that he improves whenever she's able to put in several hours of work daily. Just want to ask you if this is something you believe you'll honestly be able to do for him moving forward.

Re: Rehoming B&G Macaw

Yes, I believe so. The future is impossible to predict, but that is a constant. What is not impossible to predict, is my committment. They say not to get pets as a kid because "what about college", "what about pet-free apartments", "what about this", "what about that". Well, I have had pets and birds since I was very small. I just committed to them. When I went to college the animals were a factor, when I was looking for housing, the animals were a factor, when I was looking at jobs the animals were a factor. I cannot predict what the obsticles of the future will be, but I can predict my committment to the animals. I have never, and will never, consider giving up an animal due to convenience or something like that. Yes, I rehomed Heshe(BFA) and Adrian(Peach Faced Lovebird) when I moved once, but that was due to needing to get out of a situation that literally would have ended up costing me my life. My parents took me in, but said that the only bird I could bring with me was Alex. It still haunts me, and we are still trying to think about if it would be possible to try and buy Heshe back from the person who has him now.



That said, God willing my future looks pretty stable from where I am sitting. I am 28, engaged to be married, own land with no close neighbors, plan to work around the farm rather than outside the home, and I am dedicated to the animals in my care. Genuinely, if I am home(99% of the time I am), I have a bird on me. Right now my bird time is split between Alex and the budgies because Alex is in quarantine, but that only goes until the 18th of May, and then I can share my time with the small beaks, and Charlie can have one on one time the other 50% of my time. First because he will be in quarantine, and then because a B&G is a bazillion and a half times bigger than a budgie or a tiel, and having him out with the little beaks just seems to be begging for trouble.


Yes there will be kids in our future, but that does not change our committment to the animals in our care. We look forward to bringing up our future children to be just as animal crazy as we are, in supervised age-appropriate ways that are fun and safe for the kids and the animals. I've had birds since I was 8 years old, and have always known that whatever I did with my life, wherever I ended up, birds would always be a major part of that life.
