2 Replies and 38 Views Greetings from South London  38  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. All my birds are very well behaved with a twist of naughty sides (just like their mommy). I haven't rescued any bird yet but I can say my youngest rescued me ... You might see us in London as Sunsun wears harness and we go for adventures to parks, coffee shops etc. I hope to see ...

There's a wee Hahn's up for adoption - can anyone tell me how nippy they are  Or, ev...

1 Replies and 96 Views Hi from North Devon  96  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.

4 Replies and 415 Views Hello from Leicestershire  415  4 Started by  pipkoi Hi I have just joined Birdline as we would like to bring Parrots back into our lives & where possible, prefer to rescue. Though birdless currently, over the years we have kept Conures, Cockatiels, Eclectus, Cockatoos, Senegals & bred Eclectus & Blue & Gold .Macaws. However, we have been birdless for about 10yrs due to changes in our working circumstances i.e. More hours, time away from home. However, we have both recently retired & therefore feel that we now have the time again. Our ...

I have been thinking about adopting a bird for a while and i cannot see the sense in funding animal breeders when there are so many that are in need of homes. I have always had rescue animals, including the current two dogs and a cat. I have some experience with aviary birds, having had some in the past. I'm thinking that safehousing is a good idea to gain experien...

I live with several dogs ( all small ) 2 beautiful Celestial Parrotlets and an aviary with budgies. I also look after my mum who is quite elderly and she thinks I'm mad to have so many animals to care for ! Especially when it is pouring with rain and I have to go outside with the birds and dogs needs, but I love it. I live on a beautiful Island between Chichester and Portsmouth as far south as you can get without having a dip in the sea. Now ...

2 Replies and 683 Views Hi there  683  2 Started by  Daveo Hi to all,   I am new to birdline and currently birdless. I am 61, retired and married to Margaret for over forty years. Our parrot experience is somewhat unusual in that we looked after a timneh grey called smokey joe for a elderly gent while he went away for a few weeks in 2012. Smokey was (he is now unfortunately deceased) a 26 year old shy but aggressive bird with a bad history of plucking. However, he settled right in. We were given a list of how to care for and feed him with a big ...
