5 Replies and 1660 Views Holiday home Northumberland/Borders  1660  5 Started by  Julia I have been looking at Birdline to reassure myself that there may be someone in the NE to look after my AG should I need to go away. As I saw Johns post I thought I would offer holiday help to him or anyone else close to my area in the event they might need it and exchange for the same. I live in the Coldstream area but have a rescue Grey that has been quite a challenge so feel experienced with this type of parrot. I also own finches, a canary and a dog!

9 Replies and 2154 Views Holiday Home needed April 2014  2154  9 Started by  JohnSkye Hi, I have a BL S/H CAG at the moment but I'm going to Australia early April 2014 for aprox 3 weeks for a family wedding. He is more of a man's bird but seems to tolerate women, he may not wish to be handled unless you are a man though. he's quite happy playing on his cage but of course loves some interaction! Is there anyone in the North East that would be able to look after him while I'm away I will gladly return the favour!! Thanks,   John
