Re: Someone contacted me about Booby

she said the door slammed and the bird flew away like i said i'm from NYC i don't trust anyone. I know we had Booby in a box for about a week before we got a cage. I have had animals before and i do not let them out in harms way.

Re: Someone contacted me about Booby

So glad you have your NY spidey-sense working. It screams scam to me. 45yrs in NYC - yah we can spot them a mile away. Run that S**t in Hoboken, buddy.

Re: Someone contacted me about Booby

I'm pro finding the owner. But thus seems unlikely to me. One day? From a breeser? On Craigslist? You don't have a baby, and rgjs burd doesn't act like breeder that hasn't had contact with people..
And they absolutely could contact tge seller from Craigslist who would have had pictures and info.. plus I would want some proof tgey had posted about the lost bird.. that tgey had contacted vet offices, animals control, posted on Facebook posted on lost and found in tgeir town, I wanted to earn you nit to put exact date on here about when you found

I'm really not feeling this is a true person at all
( but you don't get paperwork usually)

Why hadn't tgey listed lost on parrot 911? Why did they visit parrot 911. I feel a visitor saw you post abd story here tgrn went to parrot 911....

Abd as an owner of a lost bird yiu know how much I want birds reunite with the owner......

I contacted parrot rescues, vets, burd stores, i cintacted all animal control, I listed on parrot 911, I kisted on our towns lost bird, I posted on Craigslist under lost pets, I out up tons of fliers, abd I had help posting on Facebook, abd aldo other I line lost pet sites,
So if tgdy got the bird on Craigslist, did they post loxt on Craigslist??? Fo they have pictures of their burd???

Re: Someone contacted me about Booby

If they lost the bird after one day, call me callous, but I'd say...NOPE...

Re: Someone contacted me about Booby

And if they know the sex of their lost bird, thst means they would have a DNA certificate!!!!!
If tgey wre buying to be a breeder snd wanted a certain sex tgey woukd have DNA certificate!!@ even sellers on Craigslist will offer DNA certificate if tgey are selling a breeder, to prove sex,

Re: Someone contacted me about Booby

o would not meet them at. Vets office. Id meet after they had proof.
She us saying one day,, because the parrot won't know her or respond to her. This person is too shady,, the story is too shady
And most birds come from pet store or breeder and would hsve paperwork, thus feels like a crafted story.....and it makes me mad. Mad for my lost burd,

Re: Someone contacted me about Booby

Thanks Laura I hope that someday you and your Quaker reunite. The girl sent me some pics its not the same bird. The coloring is off and Booby does not hang out on the floor..lol
She said she had it for a month and that the breeder had a feeling that the bird was female by looking at her stomach...I can't make this up.

Crisis averted..for now but Booby could feel that i was agitated. He kept nipping me on the mouth and ears...ouch

Re: Someone contacted me about Booby

Excellent!!! I just came here to tell you to ask for pictures!!!!

Because their are differences! My two blue quakers are very different if you look closely. My new baby has much larger eyes, much h darker grey bib, much darker and more scallops. His front circle on his head in a different place. And Neptune was more blue.

Thank you, i want my Neptune back sooooo much! I fear because he has a huge vocabulary, that an awful person would keep him......if someone found him I would buy them a new baby blue quaker from the same breeder and parents!!! I would psy tgrm bsck if they bought a cage or for any vet bills and expenses.... i would do anything to get him back.......o truly have walked a hundred miles looking for him, over the same ground, and differnt areas.. hours and hours hours days, weeks and months looking for him ok crying now..... but happy for you
