We've lost our minds.

Sponsored Links
For real this time. So, we're adding to our house of re-homes. We're re-homing a 28 year old Goffin, to round out our CAG and Quaker. He plucks as he's got parrot baggage, but we're not concerned.

Just ordered an air purifier as we'll really need it now.

Help??

re: We've lost our minds.

Good for you and good luck! I'm a selfish bird owner and while I feel for those that need to be rescued, one is enough and I don't want to spoil the relationship I have with her.
Again, thanks!

My mother used to say to me; "Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most"

re: We've lost our minds.

Anyone who brings home a cockatoo has either lost their mind or will soon, but welcome to the asylum! Bathroom's that way, coffee pot's that way, and group therapy (the forum here) is always available!

re: We've lost our minds.

Thanks for the warm welcome. We set up the bird room today so it's been chaos. Bobbi seems good, he's eating and drinking so that's good. Only a few gut wrenching screams. Yeah YouTube doesn't do them justice.

The store we got him from, who does a lot of re-homes, says we have two weeks to see if he's a fit. Well, I'm sure that will got by extremely fast.

re: We've lost our minds.

Do you know much of Bobbi's history? Has this shop rehomed him more than once?

They haven't. The previous owner's son has been fighiting cancer, and naturaly their priorities shifted. He's been plucking a bit, but this morning he came out of his cage by himself, and he was eating and drinking last night. So the first 12 hours are good.

But my god, that scream. wow.

re: We've lost our minds.

Goffins have a loud but raspy scream. I much prefer it over the head-splitting pitch of a Sun Conure, lol. Seems you are making good progress at this very early stage!!
