4 Replies and 1092 Views Aviary advice  1092  4 Started by  sallyann We're building an aviary outside which will be 12ft x 12ft, slightly higher with an apex roof. My question is  how many birds say quaker parrot sized and smaller can we comfortably put in the aviary. There will be my 2 rosellas, then the rest is for BL birds if needed. There will also be the 2 brahma hens in residence, but they are ground birds.and they have their house in there 6ftx3ft as well. Hopefully we will have it built before next spring!.   Thanks Sallyann...

Somebody is advertising 2 2 year old African Grey parrots for 'adoption'. They have been reported but I received an email after enquiring just out of curiosity! The email is worded very strangely and doesnt read well. The photos attached are blatantly taken from the internet, unless they are a professional photographer! It also says in the ad they are free, but at the ends...

7 Replies and 2057 Views Don't forget me!!!  2057  7 Started by  Dave V As an ACO I tend to keep a close eye on what birds are coming in and what birds are going out. I think it is fair to say that most people who want a parrot want a bigger one like an African Grey or bigger. This is fine and they can and do, make good pets. BUT, it has struck me that the little ones also make fantastic pets and tend to get overlooked. I personally have 2 Senegals, a Hahns Macaw, 2 Green-cheeked Conures and a Nanday Conure among my small parrots and they are all wonderful and I wou...
