Thinking......

Might go have a look at this guy for possible adoption..... he looks like he could use some extra love! The cage in the picture is his smaller one, I'm waiting for a picture of his larger cage. What do you all think? My heart just goes out to him.

Just realized I didn't attach the pic lol.... give me just a minute....

Re: Thinking......

He needs love! Main point, do you need another bird? Is it right for you & hubby? Do you have room? You're right, he could really use someone kind, someone like you.

Re: Thinking......

Poor little guy . It would be great for him to find a good home.

However, keep in mind that he is most likely NOT going to get along with your Conure. I do own both and that is ok, I just let them out at different times or keep and extra keen eye out for where they are from each other. Conures think they are big like Macaws but the Grey's beak is much bigger than theirs! LOL

Do I need another bird? well.... does anybody really NEED an extra bird? lol. Would I love to give him a home? Definately. We own our own home, so I can make more room in the living room. If I have to kick out a chair into another room, so be it. The hubby drug his feet when I first wanted Rio, but then fell in love very quickly, and I had never seen him cry so much over a pet in my life when Rio passed. He was actually the one to tell me to get River.

After time in separate rooms for a good long while, I would definately be very cautious with them together. River does seem to think he's a big tough guy, so I would see how they behave around each other, and have separate out times if that's what would be best. It's definately something for me to give a lot of tought to, I'm torn between having always wanted a grey, and this one really looks like he needs a home, and then thinking about how it would change things to have two birds.

Re: Thinking......

The more I think about it, and look at the picture, and read up on what to do about feather plucking, and changing his diet, the more I want to go get him! Hubby is taking some convincing that of course we need two birds to go along witht the two dogs and two cats. I am continuing to email the current owner, and if they agree to me seeing/possibly adoping the bird, I'm reallllly considering doing it. Just gotta figure out a day hubby and I both have off (its 4 or 5 hours each way), and ask my father in law if we can borrow his truck. Two cages plus a bird and two humans are never gonna fit in my honda civic lol. His truck has an extended cab, so the bird would of course be safe inside with us.
