Need to rehome Blue and Gold Mccaw in Texas

Hello, my father's health has gotten worse and it's getting harder for him to care for her properly. It's a blue and gold and it's name is Peaches. Located in the Dallas, Texas area. My father would like $500 as a rehoming fee. Feel free to message me or reach out to me with any questions.

Thanks

Let me see if I can get pictures to post here:

I don't know if the new owner would want it but Peaches has a really nice and big cage she lives in that will come with. It's like four feet long, three feet wide and like 5.5 feet tall.

Re: Need to rehome Blue and Gold Mccaw in Texas

I am not in the market (period, as I have a cockatoo and they can't live with Macaws safely) BUT-- how old is he/she?


Has he/she been DNA sexed. as all of these things will impact someone's ability to make the commitment or not (especially if the potential adopter has other birds, gender matters).


Also, what are the cage dimensions? The cage he/she is in right now does not look very large for a macaw, but it could be the camera angle or a sleep-cage, which is why I am asking.
Also, do you know what that cage is made of? It doesn't look like stainless and zinc/galvanized cages can be extremely dangerous, so whoever gets him/her needs to know that so that they know whether or not to plan on buying a new cage.

I am not sure how old Peaches is. We got her in 1987 and she was full grown then from what I remember, I was only 11 at the time. Let me ask Dad if a blood test was ever done. The previous owner called her Peaches so we always assumed a female.

Re: Need to rehome Blue and Gold Mccaw in Texas

Oh man, so she's your dad's baby (well, one of them, including you lol!). That must be super hard. It would be nice if someone could get her locally so that he could perhaps visit--- I know you can't ask that of an adopter, but I think anyone who loves parrots would understand that bond.


I feel so bad--- I can't imagine how hard that must be for both of them (and you). Thank you for posting-- hey--- any chance you would take on the job? I mean, I know they are a massive undertaking, but you are the closest thing this gal has other than your dad (when it comes to family) and they don't bond that easily...


Does your dad use the computer at all? Is he okay with this, or feeling sad or just knowing that it is what it is? I am not saying there is anything wrong with you posting for him, and obviously you take him into account etc as you are consulting with him, but is he okay with this whole thing or does he have any hopes/wishes for the type of home she goes to?


He's had her 35 years--- that is so hard

Do you know how long she was with the previous owner? I mean, she could be in her 40s or 50s even, but that is still not that old for a macaw.

Thanks, I wish we could be we can't, I explored that option first. Yep, his baby, like a family member.

Re: Need to rehome Blue and Gold Mccaw in Texas

Well, I hope you find her a really good home. I'm sorry for your dad and you-- I know it can't be easy at all.



Do not just give her to the first person who shows interest though and look out for "flippers". Are there any sanctuaries near you, because those can also be quite nice in some cases, and if legit, the people who run them are usually in it for the right reasons (assuming you can confirm legitimacy). The benefit of a good sanctuary is that she might be able to bond with a large enough group that she feels less upset about the transition, but no guarantee.


A home could be good too, but make sure that the person you give her to has macaw or large parrot experience and ask about what pets they have and if they have ever lost a bird due to illness etc--- things like that can be dangerous to a bird coming into a new home. Also find out if they have kids and if those kids are used to large parrots etc. If they have an avian vet nearby, that is also very important, as exotics and regular vets really do fall short in terms of care.

Thank you for that insight, I never thought of flippers on animals, who does that? Unbelievable. Thank you again
