So glad to see Sammy in a new forever home, the OP's story was very similar to when my parents allowed me to raise a baby Jenday Conure when I was 12. Everything was great for a few year, then high school hit and suddenly I was always busy -- school, friends, boyfriend, swim practice, and my time home was not enough for him. I had to rehome him, too.

That's the reason I never recommend anyone under the age of 18-21 to get a bird. There's so much change going on in your life then and most students simply aren't prepared for the time-commitment.

Re: I've decided... He's gotta have a better life.

Such a heartbreaking story, I feel for you and Sam both. I hope you find a good home for him, it would be awesome if it was Conniesmom or someone from this forum. Please keep us updated as I'm very interested in hearing a happy ending!

Re: I've decided... He's gotta have a better life.

The loving support on this thread and this forum in general has been so wonderful! GlitchTown and I ran into a bit of a "glitch" but, I think we've got it worked out. Just waiting for final word from his dad.
He's a really fun young man who loves Sammy very much. I have promised to let GlitchTown continue to be a part of Sammy's life and since we live about 6-7 hours apart, it's actually pretty "doable" for him to visit.
There's your current update and I'll continue to do so because, again, this would have never happened without you folks!!
PS - you all have some GORGEOUS bird babies!! WOW!!!

So mature of you. Just make sure he is gonna get lots of love and attention at his new home and when the day comes and you are ready to own another, it will be one lucky Parrot indeed, good luck to you x

Re: I've decided... He's gotta have a better life.

Yes thank you ALL!!! This forum has been nothing but a huge help for my entire experience. If not for this forum, well, who knows what situation Sam would be in now... meeting conniesmommy is an event of complete fate it seems, me making that post just at the time she joined... It's meant to be! We've connected not only by the fids, but also ourselves

After a lot of challenge we have finally planned to meet up next Saturday half way . So he will be going then! In the meantime, conniesmommy has ordered a travel cage and a blanket to be shipped to my house. But we are all planned! I'll have plenty more updates, and I'd imagine so too will conniesmommy!!

Re: I've decided... He's gotta have a better life.

I am so happy that things are working out! Glitchtown, I am thrilled for you that you have found a wonderful home for Sammy.
Looking forward to pictures when Sammy makes it to his new home, Conniesmommy!
Wishing y'all safe travels and I can't wait for the updates from you both

Re: I've decided... He's gotta have a better life.

I sincerely appreciate the outpouring of love and support from you all as we work through all the steps of this amazing adoption. My husband and I are not only excited about the adoption and picking Sammy up this weekend but also about "meeting" GlitchTown and his father. It's going to be a rough transition for both of those gentlemen. It's obvious they both love Sammy very much!

The excitement of knowing Sammy will be joining our family is enhanced because our sweet Connie has made some incredible progress this past week too! Our ornery Blue Crown had been locked up most of the past 8 or so years of her 13 years of life, not being allowed to get out of her cage at all. We adopted her in July with a few reservations and not knowing if we'd ever get this beast to bond with us. From the second we finally made the decision to bring her home, I think I lost my heart and mind. LOL

I have a facebook friend with TONS of rescue experience guiding me through who has been an amazing source of information and support. Now, I know we've made a few mistakes but, overall, this little screechy beast adores me and is seriously warming up to my husband. (She's got a bit of an anti-men attitude so that is unexpected and awesome)

While our progress with Connie has seemed to take forever, right now, looking back at how far we've come since we brought her home, I see a stubborn but very loving green beast starting to step up on command (not all the time but, more often), climb up to the top of her cage, ride around on Mommy's shoulder for an hour or so, give kisses and cuddles, purr, hold onto the collar on my shirt and flap her wings as we "fly" around the room together........so much!!!

And, yesterday, for the second time in two days, when she decided she had enough hooman time, she flew like an expert from my shoulder to her cage - beautiful height, flight path, navigation and pre-landing hover. I sincerely wanted to cry because I was so very proud of her. I've had other pets I've loved dearly but I don't think I've ever loved one like this.

So, that will keep you all "in the loop" for the moment as you wait anxiously from the sidelines as this adoption proceeds.

I'm struggling to post a photo of Connie here at the moment. Once I figure it out, I'll share my beautiful beast with you all.
