Rescue Me ID: 15-11-20-00282Quaker Parrot (blue)

Pet Bird    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 

    We got this quaker parrot last year as a friend for our quaker parrot. We have been working with him a lot. We were told he was 9 when we got him. He has improved drastically in his behaviors but is easily spooked and will bite HARD if he is spooked or excited. Generally a gentle and loving bird but we are expecting a baby and he gets territorial over people. He accepts the bird we have and they will chat but they will attack each other if they feel the other bird is getting more attention. He is banded and on a pellet diet. My concerns are he will injure my baby. correction when he bites is very important and very difficult. I will only ... (Read More)accept an experienced owner because we worked hard to get the bad behaviors down from where they were. He is fully flighted but I recommend trimming wings (can do for you) for the first few months until he has adjusted to being held. We are hoping to work with this bird for another three months before having to re-home him but it is doubtful that he will be ready to have an infant in our home after that time without posing a threat.

Rescue Me ID: 15-11-16-00164Black Headed Caique (male)

Pet Bird    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Hi- Here's the story about Mr. Pickles. He was hatched on December 24, 2007 (Age 8) from a reputable breeder and was sexed male. At the time I was 18 and working as a manger in a pet store. He was incredibly well socialized- seeming to like other people, pets, and birds. He does wear a diaper, but only lets me put it on. For the past 4 years he has been living with my parents as he's too noisy for an apartment. Due to that, he's developed some separation anxiety. Now he needs about a day or two to acclimate before he will let anyone touch him. Then, he seems to go back to his normal self- friendly, sweet, and a typical caique. Loves to ... (Read More)shred things, eat crackers and lasagna, and chase the dogs. However, due to his new anxiety, he will most likely need someone with bird experience to get him over this hump. It really is a shame because he used to be able to be handed to any person or child. No cage aggression at all (still doesn't after his 'separation anxiety' period). I suspect that once he acclimates to a new family he will go back to the happy, healthy bird you see in the photo. Likes both men and women. I absolutely love Mr. Pickes, and I hate to rehome him. At this point he's absolutely miserable being in a cage all the time (he used to go to work with me). Raised around dogs and has no fear at all. So, your pets should be bird friendly because he will walk right up to them. Does say a couple things- Pickles, step up, and lots of whistles. He did learn how to mimic the fire alarm sensor when it's out of batteries as well (which is funny if you have an electrician in the house walking around trying to figure out where it's coming from). Due to his current issues, I really prefer a home without children. No apartments, as he can get loud. Really prefer bird experience as he needs someone understanding at first. When you first meet him I will ensure he's acclimated to me and I can hand him off so you can see his personality. One of his favorite things is watching movies at night and curling up under your chin and under a sweatshirt or blanket. I am asking a rehoming fee purely to discourage him from being sold. He will come with a small cage, travel carrier, and 32' Nina Playtop (although you may need to buy it some new screws). Possibly, a play stand as well but it was purchased by my parents so I will have to confirm. A SUV or larger will be needed to transport the cage, but depending on distance I will be able to help if necessary. You will also be provided all of his toys which he almost never plays with- he just prefers the companionship of people. His balance has always been terrible (vet suspects a neurological or central nervous system issue) so I line his cage with puppy pads to provide some cushion. I will give you the remaining box of those as well. What I do ask is that at any given point if you can't keep him, you please reach out to me. I love him to death, and hate that I'm not in the situation to provide him with the right home. I hope to purchase a home in the next couple of years where it would be appropriate to have a bird. However, he's just too unhappy in his current situation. When responding, please include some information on your current home and family members. I'm not in a hurry to rehome Mr. Pickles, but find him the right family. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Bird in Virginia
    Birds can make good pets in Virginia if they match your IifestyIe. Exotic tropical birds such as Parrots and Cockatiels, as well as Finches, Doves, Pigeons, and other varieties, are often kept in captivity as beautiful and interesting pets. Unfortunately, many owners may not know how to care for their birds properly, while others experience life changes that may leave their pets without a suitable home. Captive birds can suffer from nutritional deficiencies, psychological stress, and many other problems when they do not receive proper care. Many wild exotic birds are endangered as a result of the international pet trade. Non-profit bird sanctuaries provide homes for some birds for whom their owners can no longer provide care. However, many more of these birds need to be adopted by committed owners who have taken the time to thoroughly understand what it takes to care for the birds. A person who is ready for the responsibility of owning a bird should seriously consider adopting one rather than buying a new one.

    Parrots mimic humans but do not mimic any other kind of animal in the wild. Exotic birds can live to be over 60 years old.
