Lesser Jardine's Parrot for sale in CA (Santa Rosa)

When I originally got Jardy, I never thought I'd ever be working anything other than day shifts. But since moving to live with my boyfriend I've gotten a well-paying job (with amazing benefits) as a blackjack dealer at the local casino. Which means... I work swing shifts (which is basically 10pm to about 6am).

So now, as you can imagine... I work all night and sleep all day. Which doesn't work well with Jardy who now interferes with my sleep schedule waking me up far too early (as well as my boyfriend AND roommate who also works late) I live in an apartment complex now as well and because of this new change in life style, Jardy is now constantly screaming. She wants attention and love-time that I am now unable to provide for her. It's not fair to her, and it's not helping anyone in the house either when she's screaming her head of while we're trying to sleep.

When I originally got her, I lived with my dad and worked at Mcdonalds during the day, she was constantly in my space because her cage was in my room. She was always around me, and she's very human dependent as she doesn't really know how to play with toys (and i've tried to get her too, from playing with them in front of her and interacting with her with the toy in hand as well, I've hid treats in them, added bells... she could care less @_@ the only time she touches them is when she's angry at something and then she just murders the toy in one swoop leaving chunks of it on the floor). She was bought as a chick and raised in a pet store for the first 4 years of her life and though everyone there had birds, they bowed to her every whim.

My new life was unexpected and I was desperately hoping I could make it work but I know now it won't. She's frustrated, screaming, waking up the apartment while I'm (and the other 2 ppl in the place) trying to sleep so I can go to work that same night. She needs someone who can give her the attention she needs. I hate doing this, but I know if I keep trying to make this work it's only going to be worse for Jardy and I don't want to be the cause of behavioral issues with her (plucking, screaming, etc.)


Jardy is going on 5 years old now, so she has plenty of life in her. She does take awhile to warm up to you (but she loves men). I've never had any behavioral issues with her outside of her normal species behavior (Jardine's often don't give any indication they're going to bite before they do). She steps up and down (although if she really doesn't want to get off you really have to work to get her off which is something i've been constantly trying to work on but she's stubborn as hell) She's picky with fresh fruit and veggies, but she does LOVE blueberries and sugar snap peas with a bit of apple on the side and seems to have fallen out of the love-fest with cauliflower (i've yet to see her touch any other veggies that I've tried). For the most part she's fed Zupreem fruit pellets since I moved because I don't have the funds right now to buy her fresh food. (99% of my paycheck goes to rent and my phone bill and loans, which is another issue I now face with keeping her). She doesn't trust items easily though. When I first got her and pulled out the roll of paper towels that I line her cage with, she lunged... a lot, at it. Toilet paper rolls? Wants to murder them. Anything that she doesn't know that comes near her cage she'll try to attack it, so her new owner will have to be careful with things like that. The things I've been using since I got her she's used to for the most part, but anything else you'll have to let her know it's not going to eat her.

She comes with everything. Her cage, tree, toys, food, and tubs of extra perches/toys/etc. I paid $1,500 for her, and that's excluding her cage and everything else.

I only want serious buyers, and so this is why I'm going to ask for about $1,000 for her and everything else. I say about only because I may be willing to drop it a TINY BIT, but for the most part I'm dead set on my current price. It's fair and it tells me that you're serious.

Unfortunately you will have to pick her up. My boyfriends car is not large enough to transport her cage/travel cage and all the other supplies.

Any other information feel free to ask.

And PS to be up front and honest; no, I have never taken Jardy to a vet since I bought her and she is not a 100% guaranteed a 'she'.

Her cage has changed a bit since this picture was taken, obviously different toys/setup etc. but her actual cage is the same. It also shows her tree.

Hi, I'm sorry to see that you must part with Jardy. I know it's not a fun decision, but I understand your reason with your drastic lifestyle change. I wish you much luck in finding Jardy a great new owner and home.

Re: Lesser Jardine's Parrot for sale in CA (Santa Rosa)

Thank you.

Yeah unfortunately sleeping all day and out all night is the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of what a bird does so I feel no matter what I do it won't help the current situation with her at all.

And as much as just finding a different job may sound like a good idea... my BF also works at the casino, at night as well, and its very frustrating on the relationship when he was sleeping all day while I was awake (back when I first moved here before getting the job)

If anyone has any ideas as well about how to help find her a new home let me know. I hate craigslist and I also know its a big no-no to post things like this up there but I don't know how else to get it out in the world that Jardy needs a new, loving home.

Hi, wishing you luck in finding Jardy a new home. It isnt easy working nights with a bird. Plum used to wake me up after a few hours so I know how it feels. There are lots of viewers here so hopefully you will find a good home for her.

Re: Lesser Jardine's Parrot for sale in CA (Santa Rosa)

From time to time we do get people who sign up here for the sole purpose of scanning the forum for 'giveaway' or 'affordably priced' birds, not really even being particular what bird it is. Usually the tip off is that the same people will post in several threads like this with a one liner, or something that doesn't 'look right', in hopes someone with a bird to give will reply. Wherever you advertise, please screen each interested person very carefully and thoroughly, since I know you care about what kind of home Jardy goes to. Again, best of luck!

Re: Lesser Jardine's Parrot for sale in CA (Santa Rosa)

Craigslist isn't an awful place as long as you are careful and screen people. You can still ask for vet references and home visits etc.

I got Chiqui off craigslist and I adore her. I actually found my gcc on there too (local parrot store advertises there).

Good luck!
