    I would like to find an aviary for my 6 budgies and 2 parrotlets to go to, but want to make sure the person is decent and does not do something untowards with the birds...

    We have been looking after them for 3 years, and they are great birds (untame).
    The intention was always to tame them and allow them daily flies around our large conservatory, however, after an unfortunate incident 2 years ago, one died suddenly (our only tamed one at that point) from accidentally ingesting what we later realised was lead paint on the windowsills.
    So that was the last time they were out free, as I didn't want to risk anymore deaths due to lead paint, so they have been stuck in their small indoor aviary for 2 years with no free flight, along with the 2 parrotlets, who are in a cage (untame also).
    I feel bad that this is the case, as we have always owned birds who we have tamed and allowed to enjoy free flight around the house, but this whole house is unrenovated and impossible to keep them safe.
    The one that died just pecked a tiny flake that was sitting on the windowsill and dropped dead a few days later.
    The Avian vet told us Budgies are so small doing a chelating treatment on them etc is just too difficult.
    So I have decided they should go to someone that has an aviary environment so they can be in community, but be free to exercise rather than sit in a cage the rest of their lives.
    I have seen some people on pre-loved etc that offer to rehome to an aviary and not resell them etc, but want to make sure they go somewhere safe.
    Any suggestions?

    Katy, call the Helpline: 0845 643 1785, and have a chat. They will be able to tell you if there's space in an aviary in your area. They will be able to give you advice, too. You're right to be concerned as to where they go. Gumtree and similar can all tell you they won't be sold on, they'll be ok, and all that, but a reputable Parrot Rescue charity is much better. Birdline never, ever sell a bird, aviary or companion.
