Welcome! I too have a U2 lol. They are a cute pair. Crazy that someone would sell one at a garage sale...so so sad. Glad they found an owner who cares.

I was surprise as well, to make matter worst he had them in second part of the garage and back entrance to house, not even in his house with his snakes and other reptiles, 3 African grey and 2 other Cockatoos, one being a bare eyed cockatoo.

One of the lady that was at the garage sale told him where I work as she knew, us as well known in the area as fixed her phone and a week later he tried to buy Cooper back crying and saying he miss her. He didn't realize he was a male, as had him DNA tested, he didn't even have a name for him? I show him the issues he had and how he was on his last legs due to improper care and found out he only really feed him seeds and then he apologize and didn't know he was in that bad of shape, even though at the time he was pretty bare missing most of his feathers. I told him he could visit him once in a while, trying to be diplomatic, but he never even bother to come back?

Re: Hi I am the Parrot Genie and current bird owner of 5

So many birds are hidden away in garages... Especially feather pluckers.. I always urge those people if they are reading this, it's ok to re-home them, someone will love them

Re: Hi I am the Parrot Genie and current bird owner of 5

You were right to keep the birds. People get attached to ideas (often without truly caring). I am sure that the person "missed" something that the bird brought to his/her life, but the bird is better off, and the fact that they didn't come back proves that it was a fleeting thought

Re: Hi I am the Parrot Genie and current bird owner of 5

Here my other 3 in my flock

This one is named Wylie. The person that I rescued him actually rescued him from a breeder. He was about to get wrongfully euthanized as the vet they used clearly had no clue what he was doing and sure not be practicing. He had a lump in his crop and this vet told the breeder he wasn't going to make it due to he believed it was cancerous, never did any test just assumed, that the bird sure be put down due to quality of life won't be good. So lady took him from that breeder instead of them allowing him to be put down, as breeder also wasn't going to put him down. She came in ask me if I knew anyone that would take him as she not a bird person. I took him on. The lump was a common crop infection which is usually refer to Sour crop as food they hand feed him when bad. I had him treated and lump when away and took care of his respiratory infection as well. Hand fed him myself for a while. He now about 9 months old. He the most bonded to me as he like being on my shoulder and getting head scratches, plus loves to get into trouble.

Here Fresco, yes name is a male name, but is a she. He was given to me by same lady but just wasn't tamed and way to aggressive, as she had to chase her around a few times and was bitten hard. I tamed her and she pretty sweet now, always begging to come out in the morning.

Re: Hi I am the Parrot Genie and current bird owner of 5

Here the last one and her name is Pepper, she was given up due to the person want to get rid of her as he had over 8 Cockatiels and need to find home for a few and bought her so my male could have a companion while I am at work. This was before I received Fresco. She about 6 months old. Also wasn't tamed, but now is.
