6 Replies and 894 Views Hello!  894  6 Started by  jwar090 Hello everyone!  I'm Jo and I live with my partner Gareth in Southampton. We share our home with a 6 month old cockatiel called Charlie. He's a real character and we would love to find a companion for him! That is why we have chosen to join Birdline.  Charlie is really soppy and loves his cuddles but can also be mischievous! He likes to talk and can say phrases including 'what you doing' and 'good boy.' He also loves looking at himself in the mirror and enjoys serenading peoples feet...

13 Replies and 1900 Views Hello everyone  1900  13 Started by  Hughina Just introducing myself and hope I have the correct place.  I already have 3 birds, Harry, my patagonian conure and don't I know I have him!  Corky a coctakiel and Pinky a Beurkes parrakeet, these two are so quiet and at least 8 years old,  they are all rescued so have little idea of age and sex, previous life. I have been watching this site for a while but did not think my boys would be of interest to anyone, anyway I realised that is not the way it works, so here we are.

13 Replies and 1420 Views Hello from me and Archie  1420  13 Started by  Julia I would like to introduce myself and would love to get some advice! I have had my lovely grey since last year and rescued him from people who did not understand him and as a result the little 11 month old was in a bad way with no tail and half a wing. After tons of online learning I have changed his diet to Harrisons, learnt how to make foraging toys, done clicker training and overcome loads of behavioural problems with him, including feather plucking. I am finding it all really stressful and h...

3 Replies and 678 Views Hi Everyone  678  3 Started by  ANGUSMCTAB Found this site this evening while researching parrots.  I have been l researching and looking for some time to get a pet parrot.  I have experience as a younger lad until age of 30 of an African grey.  After seeing a documentary on you tube.  I cannot contemplate buying a young bird but now only want to offer a home to a parrot in need.  I was so upset by the number of birds being rehomed I just want to be able to help in a small way.

He was a cockateal named gonzo and I cried for weeks when he passed Recently me and my fiance have been talking about getting a bird. Two reasons really 1) we love them and share the same thoughts on how a bird should be cared for and secondly because we decided not to have children. He already has two boys and I'm more animal orientated anyway. I have have experience in fancy rats, degus,mice,...

3 Replies and 747 Views Hello!  747  3 Started by  carolrifka Hi everyone. I joined Birdline back in November and applied to foster one of the birds from the re-homing list. I've had my phone call and home check and am now waiting. I'm a writer and was doing a lot of research about parrots for a novel. I found Birdline along the way. I am still surprised that my fictional parrot is possibly going to become a reality! The kids ask every day if I heard back from 'the bird lady' yet. Seems like the prospect of a new member of the family has everyone excited h...

I have always grown up with birds and was fortunate to be the human they all chose to be with and allow to handle. Since getting married and etc I have been bird free. We have recently built a fantastic open plan room which is crying out for a grey. However after much research, finding breaded, nearest specialist vet and even somewhere for him/her to have holidays I have decided I am being selfish at the moment and will be best to wait. My youngest child is only 3 and I...
