Rescue Me ID: 16-05-25-00138Mullucan Cockatoo (male)

Pet Bird    Age: Adult

Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 

    This beautiful boy has a storied past - he was bought in a pet store by a woman, taken home and locked in a small cage in an isolated room and covered with a blanket or beaten with a broomstick by her boyfriend whenever he became too noisy - so he definitely doesn't like the broom or men. From there, he landed in a shelter where circumstances weren't much better - while he was moved into a larger cage more appropriate for a bird of his size, the owner kept him and four other parrots enclosed in a small room with no windows, no toys and very little human interaction for stimulation aside from the daily routine of food, water and cage ... (Read More)cleaning. I rescued him from there and now he is in a large cage in a well-lit sunroom with lots of toys to play with and wood to chew on and radio and television and other birds in other cages across the room to stimulate him, but alas, I realize I have bitten off more than I can chew with this big boy, because between my work and school and travel schedules, I just do not have the time to give him the out-of-cage time and human interaction he so desperately wants, needs and deserves. He is still very fearful of humans and does occasionally turn and bite, so he definitely needs someone with experience handling large parrots. Someone who has a lot of time and patience to bring him out of his cage and into his own and is willing to give him a forever home. If you think you are that person, drop me a note or give me a call and we can make arrangements for you to visit him and for me to visit the place where he will be living as I won't just entrust him to anyone at this point. I have to know that he will be in a good home and not just passed along to the next highest bidder for profit. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-21-00301Parakeet (male)

Pet Bird    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Birds 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    This is Stan Lee, he has a teal blue body and a yellow face,he loves being able to fly around outside his cage. I don't have the time I used to have to play with him and his partner, my other bird, died within the past few months due to complications laying eggs. He is skittish around people and has been ever since I adopted him but I haven't had the time to spend with him every day to get him accustomed to me, as he's usually been with other birds and had plenty of company. He has never been sick in the time I've owned him and I'd like him to have a loving home where he can get the attention I can't provide for him. He is good with other ...

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-20-00310Sun Conures (2) (male)

Pet Bird    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Birds 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 

    I have two beautiful but slightly noisy sun conures for sale. First is Harley, and he is approximately 6 years old. He is nippy until he gets used to you. He loves to climb on my shoulder from his cage and ride there while I feed and water the other birds. He is very playful. He will come with his cage. Next is Alex, who is also approximately 6 years old. He is a little cage aggressive but once out of his cage he will step right up on your finger. He has a past injury of some sort that is not immediately noticeable, but I can tell in the way that he walks when he is out on the floor. He comes with his cage. They can be adopted together or ... (Read More)separately, as they are not bonded, but do get along together in my large outdoor aviary. They are never caged together. They both need a good home with lots of out of cage time to be happy. You really should have prior bird experience, as sun conures can be loud and can bite rather hard. They are both fully flighted, and enjoy their wings. Please email me if you have any questions, and please tell me about your prior experience with birds as pets. I am only able to meet within 30 minutes of where I live in Staunton, VA. Pictured here is Harley. Alex looks very similar. Thank you. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-10-00008Parakeets

Pet Bird   

Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 

    Greetings! I have 4 WONDERFUL parakeets looking for a new home. They come with a large cage, toys, and food dishes. I had bought them for my mom a while back. My mom passed away a year and a half ago. Since then I have cared for them but, have other birds, dogs, and a baby. They are well cared for but, these guys deserve a little better. I am not sure of their age but, get the feeling they are older. They are not hand held but, once they settle in they will sing for you and to you. When my mom would come home they would greet her with singing! They are great birds. Wonderful for older people or folks without dogs or cats.

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.

lnteresting Bird Trivia Low-Cost Virginia Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Parrots mimic humans but do not mimic any other kind of animal in the wild. The use of nonstick cookware can be extremely toxic to parrots living in the home. Parrots can die from exposure to normal household substances such as bleach fumes, perfumes, and anything sprayed from an aerosol can. Exotic birds can live to be over 60 years old.
