You may have noticed that we don’t have many blog articles here about adopting parrots or other birds. That’s because although I have had decades of experience caring, fostering, and adopting out dogs, cats, rabbits, and other pets in my work with animal shelters and rescues, when it came time to counsel someone about adopting a bird – I would always ask that one of the more bird-experienced staff handle that adoption consultation. Many first-time bird adopters are just like me: they think birds and parrots are beautiful, fascinating creatures, but know almost nothing about what would be involved with adopting and caring for a bird, especially a parrot. Fortunately, there are great bird and parrot experts who can help guide us bird novices through deciding if we are ready to adopt a parrot, cockatoo, canary, or any other bird. Read on for some basic steps to get you ready to adopt a bird! Search for adoptable pets at shelters and rescues, and adopt your new Senior Birds.

Can you open your door and your heart to a bird who needs a second chance? Ask yourself that. All bird lovers know how rewarding it can be to care for one or more of them. And sometimes rescued and readopted birds make the best pets.4. Our fees are not listed on our website because each bird's fee is based upon the costs we have incurred for that specific bird. Please do not call and ask the prices of our birds. This illustrates to us that you may be geared more towards the cost of the bird and not which bird would fit best into your family situation. We can assure you that all of our birds are well below retail that you would find at any pet store/breeder. We spend 1-4 hours daily taking phone calls regarding the fees, the personalities, etc., of each of our birds, and many times the bird you call about is not the bird that would be best suited for your situation. Please understand that this takes us away from caring for these magnificent creatures and therefore violates # 1 above. Once your application is approved, we will let you know all of the costs involved in adopting a specific bird. Our Virtual Bird Tour is on this Petfinder site. CLICK ON "View our Adoptable Birds" at the top of this page for the complete list of birds available from our agency. Then CLICK ON THE PICTURE OF THE BIRD for more details on that bird. All info is updated as soon as we can. Pet birds are typically sold individually or in pairs. If you buy a single bird, it is more likely to bond with you. When you buy two birds together, they will probably bond with each other, and you could be ignored. For this reason, my daughter adopted a single small parakeet, named Lemon for her solid yellow color. She bonded with the bird and was successful in some training. After a year, though, she purchased a second parakeet, white in color and so named Marshmallow. The two birds adore each other, and though Lemon has less interest in my daughter, she appears to be a happier bird over all.ADOPT-A-PET: WGN NEWS Chicago -8/25/2009-
