    When applying for birds can you please remember to put a contact number and location, saves bouncing emails around trying to find this out! Also when applying for birds can people please remember that it's ONE bird per application.  If you want to apply for more than one bird please do so on a seperate application. 

    Cheers

    hi tony  glad your interested.

    you need to apply with the application form. found under parrots, birdline parrot re-homing the submit a rehoming application.

     

    you need to be a paid member at £25 a year. and you will need a home check if you are chosen to foster the bird.  

     

    i know it sound like alot of work, but its for the sake of the bird.  to make sure its new forever home is the correct one.

     

    good luck tony

    Hello Tony and welcome from another Devon member. As Stockers says, you need to join if you want to become a safehouse or foster. If you want to safehouse then email Linda Wilson, her details are under the members area which you probably can't see at the moment, to have a homecheck for safehousing.

    If you want to foster one of the birds, then you need to apply for it and you will have a homecheck but by someone else!

    Welcome on board and we look forward to meeting you, however you decide that you can help.

    Hi Tony, another Brixham member here! I have been a member of BL for four years now and have fostered 5 BL birds. Two greys, a Jardine, a Sennie and a cockatiel. Hope to meet you some time soon.

    Ha this is getting good (another potential Torbay member), welcome to Birdline Tony. As mentioned above, you will need to join as a full member before you can apply to foster. There are quite a few of us in Torbay, and hopefully we shall get the chance to meet up sometime.

    Not sure the best place to ask this question, but someone on here might know. I have applied to foster to a bird that I think I would be a good fit fo, but after a lot of thought I have come to the conclusion that there is another little bird on the list that I would probably be an even better match for and she has been waiting quite a long time for a foster mum. So my question is, is there a way to change my application? I really don't want to mess the rehoming team around as I know everyone is a volunteer, but I think I gave too much consideration to geographical distance, when for a long term home that's probably less relevant.
    Apologies if I'm making life difficult.
