0 Replies and 57 Views Hello from Essex!  57  0 Started by  Xavier Hello fellow bird lovers! My name is Xavier and I am tentatively looking into getting back into companion birds, but this time perhaps a companion that is a little larger and longer lived than my (very gorgeous) cockatiels. I'm not sure if I will apply to foster one of the very lovely birds whose descriptions have pulled at my heart strings, there are a few lady loving Amazons who as much as I love the sound of I'm quite sure will have more than enough suitable applicants without a bouncy Labra...

2 Replies and 280 Views Greetings from South London  280  2 Started by  Bea Hi everyone! In memory of our beloved angel Doddie I became a full member of the Birdline UK. I am a proud parront of three. A 10years old budgie Cuki, a 9years old cockatiel Coco and a 18 months old sun conure Sunsun.

You might see us in London as Sunsun wears harness and we go for adventures to parks, coffee shops etc. I hope to see ...

1 Replies and 296 Views Hi from North Devon  296  1 Started by  Derek I have been a member since January when I requested a bird. My CAG died and as Birdline did not know the cause I was put in quarantine for 3 months. Well 7 months later and still not result. Even offered to be a safe house. No wonder the charity is at breaking point if members are treated like I have been treated. Needless to say I will not be renewing my membership as I have already wasted £25. Oh and I passed my home visit which was a waste of time.
