Re: URGENT: Free Black Capped Conure

UPDATE : today I called Petco to see if there was an update with the conure and if the vet had seen it. They had the audacity to tell me that it had gotten sold. I knew they were either planning to return it, or put it down so I went to the store and demanded to know what happened to the bird. I felt so bad because i thought it had been put down because of me. Finally, after 10 minutes , they told me that it was in the back and it would stay there until the vet sees it on Tuesday. Until then, it was not allowed to be in the front or on sale. I have no idea what to believe and I'm really hoping that what they're saying is true. Will see on Tuesday.

Re: URGENT: Free Black Capped Conure

Oh no! Ugh, did you tell them you wanted to buy the bird????? And most likely just feather picking and a healthy bird. ..... If it's in back I'm sure is in a terrible cage..
I rescued my Penny from a pet store , she was in a shoebox size cage with poop piled high, with matted feathers of poop dirt and dirty water and feather picking, I bought her and ran!!!! I haven't seen them treat other birds that way, was an employee bird...
Anyway I feel ya, I hope you can rescue! I have two bonded birds they ok with Penny

The two bonded conures will be fine! Hubby? Easy fix! And this will give you more time for the birds!

haha, if only it was that easy.My hubby will probably divorce me if I get another one jokes aside, he really doesn't like the two that I already have because he's not really an animal person. Those two are such a handful , and with a full time job, I really don't think I can manage another one. Hopefully I can find a home soon.

Re: URGENT: Free Black Capped Conure

I'd choose Skittles over a human being any day. I'm constantly choosing Skittles over people, including myself. I don't apologize for it either. If people in my life don't like the sacrifices I make or don't agree with them, well then they can leave my life and Skitty and I will do just fine.

I had no idea there was a time limit on bird sales. Skittles had been to three different stores when I got him. He was 1yr-2wks old. But I didn't get him at Petco, I got him at a local chain so maybe thats why he looked so healthy.

Re: URGENT: Free Black Capped Conure

You could always buy him, keep him at your place while you find his forever home. Would give you more time that way.

Re: URGENT: Free Black Capped Conure

Damn!!! I don't live far from you! ( south central CT) I have two fid's already and unfortunately had to get rid of my house and move in with my brother. He is ok with Amy and BB but would NOT allow me to bring home another one If I was still in my home I would have jumped on it!

I also notice that in my local AllPets store,if they have had a bird for "too long" the price drops dramatically! I saw a pair of Cockatiels that needed to go,being sold for $225 WITH cage! I didn't think the cage was large enough for two 'tiels,but at this store 'tiels go for an average of $275...depending on mutation.

I surely hope your conure friend has a good outcome.



Jim
