4 Replies and 1342 Views Holiday Home  1342  4 Started by  joyce I wrote to Birdline in March asking if anyone would be willing to look after my orange winged amazon for about 6 months.  I am going to Spain and only have room for my 2 African Greys and my Green Winged Macaw.  Sharon Foulds responded saying she would be happy to have Tony (my amazon).   In April I advised Sharon that my quiet old Tony of 25 years had become a very noisy and argumentative boy and was attacking everything in sight.  Sharon suggested  I take him...

6 Replies and 1112 Views harness and taking parrot out and about  1112  6 Started by  s17art I am awaiting the results of my application, but while sat in my local where pets are welcome, I wondered if it was feasible to take a parrot out on a harness as long as its deemed a safe and bird settled well, also if the bird can be taken on holidays away in a caravan/trailer tent in a travel cage with again harness fitted. I ask as my late dog was able to join me almost anywhere and would like to be able to do the same cheers simon
