1 Replies and 457 Views Hi everyone :)  457  1 Started by  only me Hi everyone, i'm Mark. I live in the West Midlands. I stumbled across the site whilst looking for bird rescue centres within the UK. 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 730 Views Hi there  730  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 ...

0 Replies and 627 Views New member in Kent  627  0 Started by  Robbieb60 Hi, I have just joined the group after hearing so many great comments from friends and other rescue services. Although I co-run a rescue service in Kent , I don't currently have a bird of my own. I have around 32 years experience in keeping, breeding, and caring for various species of birds, and working with other rescue groups over the last 15 odd years have helped to care for and re-home everything from a finch to a European Eagle Owl.  I had my last Macaw Ronnie for just over 15 years,...

3 Replies and 754 Views Hi from Manc Mynah Mama!  754  3 Started by  Mynah Mama Hello folks! I'm from Manchester and I've just joined the forum. I know it seems to be mainly owners of parrots on here so I may not meet anyone else who owns a wonderful, rare, entertaining and extremely intelligent bird like mine....a Greater Indian Hill Mynah! He's called Jake and I've owned him for over 9 years now....he's almost 10 years old. He's adorable and I am so glad I have had the opportunity to own one of these amazing birds. Looking forward to perusing the forum! xx

1 Replies and 677 Views Hello!  677  1 Started by  saraian26 Hi, my name is Sara - said Sarah, I am 32, have 5 children, have a lurcher, hamster (my daughters) a cat, Rosie and my two cockatiels Buddy and BooBoo.  I haven't had my birds long and I am not an expert, but I'm reading and learning and love my birds to bits. They are unlike any other pet I've owned and I'm mad about them. I picked cockatiels as I wanted a parrot type, I always wanted one but with 5 kids I knew I wouldn't have a spare 600 quid spare for one! So when I met my current birds ...

I have had birds since being a young girl and currently have two Indian ringnecks and six budgies. My dream had always been to have an African grey. Last Saturday I brought our new baby called Wolf home and the worries began. I was informed by the breeder that Wolf was weaned but still required a night feed just for a week. I purchased a massive bag of food from the breeder so he would b happy with the food h...

5 Replies and 1023 Views Hello from Salisbury, Wiltshire!  1023  5 Started by  KZAD Found this place after seeing if there were any bird rescues in the area. I've never had birds so I'm trying to find out all I can about various species, see, my mum and I are actually really allergic to birds, despite this I often go off on pigeon rescues. We're trying to find out if there are any birds that we'd maybe be okay with, I've heard conures are better for allergy sufferers but then I've also heard their dander can be some of the worst. Pretty much avoiding African Greys because ever...

3 Replies and 945 Views Hi from Wiltshire.  945  3 Started by  BadBadger Hello to everyone at Birdline, I drifted onto this site after re-igniting my passion for parrots that was dampened by having to much fun as a twenty something then to many kids as a thirty something that meant being restricted to doves,pigeons and occasional budgies. However I always took in wild rescue birds if I had to and thats what made me decide to collect 2 poorly kept and very unhappy Conure,a maroon belly and a green cheek,from the usual 'bird in cage-cage in corner-seed-water' kind of...

Since finding this site I am also seriously contemplating fostering as well as adopting. I live with 2 cats (and 3 fish) in a 2-bedroom terraced house, and I work full-time (but only because it's what pays the bills otherwise I'm sure I'd almost never leave the house!  I'm not great at dealing with 'outside'!).

4 Replies and 966 Views Hello... I'm new! Waiting for my perfect parrot :)  966  4 Started by  evemarine Hello I'm a new member, from Kent. I've always wanted a parrot (a Gray) but never have as I have been concerned about paying into irresponsible breeding or wild imports. Glad I have found birdline! Trouble is I've fallen for a particular bird who seems like a perfect match for us, but she's not local - so probably not going to be ours. Luckily I believe in fate so what will be will be... We have dogs, cats (rather bomb proof and used to all sorts of animals) and rabbits currently, and we...

I'm Sophie, I live in the Norfolk countryside with my other half and currently no pets.

We work full time so will be looking for a pair which would be happy to keep each other company whilst we are out during the day. We will be read...
