11 Replies and 3041 Views Petition to UK Government to licence Breeding of Exotic Birds  3041  11 Started by  Di Presumably, if you are reading this, you are interested in the welfare of exotic birds.  As it currently stands anyone can breed or deal in exotic birds and sell them for enormous amounts of money without being licensed to do so.  There are no home checks on these people to ensure that the birds are kept in the correct conditions and given the correct diet. Those breeders who are conscientious in the manner that they keep their birds would also support licensing as it would go a long ...

0 Replies and 827 Views River Summer Fayre, Dover, CANCELLED  827  0 Started by  Doddie Kent The River Summer Fayre, near Dover, has been cancelled. It's much too hot, and would be impossible for the birds to relax in the heat, so sorry for all the hard work that people have put in, but it'll hopefully be ok in a couple of weekends' time, on 28th July, for the next show.

5 Replies and 2855 Views Progress :)  2855  5 Started by  Kanundra I'm only on a few parrot forums. And seeing as I like to be active. I thought I'd post about our progress with our IRN Bobby today.  We took him in as a friend wanted to re-home him. And we've had him just over 4 weeks now. He was pretty scared at first, but I took to talking to him and sitting by his cage. We got him a new cage... and he's really come along since then. He bathes every day, although in my perch bowl. And the last week he's started taking veggies from my hands.   Toda...

I asked their age and how long they had them. The guy in the shop said they were about 8months and they had had them for a while. Well, by the look of the cage it hadn't been cleaned for eight months and the poor things looked so sad. The perches were caked with poo and and the bottom of the cage grill was covered. I told him it was about time he cleaned the cage out for them and he...

Safe Housing is a simple way to help our much needed birds. You will need to be a paid up member but then all you need to do is have a FREE Homecheck to check your home is suitable and then take in as few or as many birds as you can manage on a temporary basis. Whilst with you, you get to know the birds, help to develop them and then, with my help, write an evaluation for the Rehoming Team. When the bird has been found ...
