Rehoming Patagonian conure


New member
Mar 21, 2020
After 3 years of going back and forth on whether this is the right decision for both me and my parrot, Cooper, I have decided to seek a new home for him. I recently lost my other parrot and it has devastated my world and Coopers. I work 3 jobs and travel to Alaska almost monthly as well as internationally for months at a time yearly. Having two birds made me feel like they would keep each other company while my life became more and more complicated. Now that I only have one I realize I am not being and cannot be fair to Cooper in providing him the life he deserves and needs. It breaks my heart knowing I cannot give him what he deserves and I desperately want him to have a home that has the time to provide the mental stimulation and love that a parrot needs!

Cooper is 14 years old, loves belly rubs, fetching, kisses, pasta, and wrestling under covers. He is also pretty moody, loud, and bossy (he's a very typical Patagonian Conure). I am looking for someone who has past parrot experience, is preferably over 30, and owns their home. I am willing to drive within 300 miles of Missoula, MT and could fly with him just about anywhere for a home that was a perfect fit. I am not willing to compromise on his next home, will have a contract, need 3 references (one being a vet).

I am so sorry for your loss. I do hope Cooper finds a wonderful home. I am so happy to hear that you aren't going to compromise Cooper's well being to just find him a quick home. That's amazing that you are requiring contract, and a vet as a reference.

Pete, rescued Patagonian Conure

Did you end up finding a home for him? I currently have a Patagonian Conure that I rescued from the Costco parking lot here in Wilmington, NC. I've been thinking for a while now that he needs a parrot friend, but Patagonian conures aren't all that common, and I didn't want to go with a larger or smaller species. Anyway, I found your post - I know its older - and wanted to reach out.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your other bird.
I'm glad you are trying your best to give him the life he really needs. That's really good to hear.
And I hope your conure will find a loving and amazing home that he can call his own, hopefully thriving along the way.
He's really adorable too!
