Hello Schmitt, Welcome to the forum, We all know the feeling of longing for some parrot LOVE

Sometimes you can find a deal on re-homing a bird, they need love too, as a matter of fact I have already promised to make my next bird a rescue bird, I have heard stories here of some of the nicest, most loving birds being found that way AND they don't cost nearly as much
Sometimes The Bird Just PICKS YOU !!

What size parrot were you thinking about?

Re: hello from AR

Hello and welcome to the forum. It's nice to see you are doing your research before you bring your bird home.

Three of my six parrots were free, initially! Don't let that fool you. There's the cost of the largest cage you can afford, toys that constantly need replacing, and according to what species you get, an expensive diet, then there is vet care that can run into thousands before you can blink. Not trying to discourage you at all, but please be aware. Another consideration with a rehomed or rescue bird is that a lot of them have issues from their previous homes and require a lot of extra training time, not to mention patience and a certain amount of knowledge to work through those problems.
