Re: Looking for new home for Cockatoo

[QUOTE=mtdoramike;75820
That;s not always the case. I got my Tiki from Craigslist and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. To me, it's the SELLERS responsibility to make sure that THEIR bird goes to a good and not just trying to re-coop their investment. I find it harder to trust the seller on Craigslist than the buyer. I have come across tons of birds that are living in deplorable conditions, have been left in their cages for months if not years and went from a tame well socialized bird to a bitey, squawky bird that doesn't trust anyone and has been so unsocialized, that it would take months if not years to bring them back and some may not ever be pets again. But yet, the owner acts like the bird is their stock portfolio and wants just about what a new baby from a breeder would cost rather then thinking of the bird rather than filling their pockets.

So I do beg to differ, Craigslist serves a purpose like all classieds do. If not for them, there would no doubt be a lot more birds hitting rescue centers. As far as Florida Parrot Rescue, They might want to relax their adoption restrictions or rules a little. If so they might re-home more birds then what they do. Their re-homing fees aren't too far off from what I see on Craigslist ever day. Heck, I even sent them two emails with my back ground info if they were in need of a good foster home and have yet to get a response or even a THANK YOU! My wife and I are both retired, own our own home, only have one animal that we spoil rotten, but I guess we don't measure up.[/QUOTE]

Im sorry to hear you have yet to hear a response. Their prices come with cages and are fine prices. The lower prices is for bird alone which are good prices for the bird/etc in my opinion when it comes to the rehab and etc that the bird requires or required... there is a "NEW" lady doing the acceptance of fosters and etc.. So you may want to try again. It took them a while to get to me but i kept resending the email as im sure they get many... They did get to me and I was accepted as a foster. Do i currently foster for them now... no. I just moved this past weekend.. I need to settle in and have this darn baby so im less stressed or in less pain.. LOL

Yes CL has its perks but dont be suprised if your ad gets flagged a hundred times.Florida Space Coast and Orlando section people flag free ad's just as much as they flag ad's with a price. CL is a joke most of the time with their rules. It also attracts MANY weirdos. Best of luck with CL...
I would be very strick with who you rehome the bird to. Sometimes that's what it takes to find the bird or animal a forever home. Keep in mind... I've done animal rescue for 7 yrs I know... SO i understand why the FPR has prices and regulations the way they have it. At least you know for a fact the bird is going to someone who is experienced and with someone who will either "keep" the bird forever or rehome the bird to their Forever home.

God bless and I wish you the best of luck with finding your bird a forever home. It's not easy by any means.

Re: Looking for new home for Cockatoo

what i was thinking about is what if you talk to a local bird rescue and ask them to help find a home but you will be a foster? they do that for dogs why not birds. or you could find a local parrot shop that you trust to find a good home or just keep posting on bird forms. i wouldnt trust anyone but yourself and a bird rescue to find a really good home, but i did find my bird on craigslist and i love him to death hes great. i would take your cockatoo but im in ohio and im not aloud to have anymore pets so keep looking! also you could contact local breeders to see if they know anyone they trust that might want to adopt your cockatoo

Re: Looking for new home for Cockatoo

Hi Jonette,
I am looking for a cockatoo to free flight with my male umbrella, but alas, we live in central California. My husband and I live on 160 acres, in the foothills above Fresno, CA and our bird was not happy, at all, in his cage. We got a bigger cage so he could be outside on our deck during the day, then that didn't seem big enough. We put a ramp from his cage to the oak tree next to the deck in hopes he would love us enough to stay close. Guess what, he still loves us, has totally modified all the trees in the area, (and our wood deck), the hawks and ravens are scared to death of him, but he comes in at evening time for his oatmeal, bananas, apples, seeds and cuddles before bedtime. We put him in his house cage at night. I wish we lived closer, I think your bird would love us.

Re: Looking for new home for Cockatoo

I Live in Atlanta and Have not only a lot of experience with birds but also practice the Sitar 8 hours a day and will there for the Bird almost all day.
