Here is a link to a an add I just read on CL. It just broke my heart.. left alll alone after Hurricane Ike.. Thankfully she did take him in, but now she is trying to SELL him.. why would you try to make money off him? Sounds like he already been through so much and now to be rehomed again. AND she is looking to breed..

I want to email her and ask why she isnt more concerened about the bird then making money to buy another off something that was GIVEN too her!!!

That's too bad. But unfortunately, that is completely the norm. It's like the bird stores, if we buy one we open up a space for another one to be in its place for them to make money. Only difference is this person is admitting to it.
I feel bad for the bird too. I hope that whoever buys this bird, will keep him, and hopefully even come here.


look to your birds for love

I'm obsessed with CL now. Saw an add on there the other day for a young iguana for sale. Opened it up and it was a young kid trying to sell his iguana because he made a deal with his grandma that if he got rid of his iguana he could get a bird!!! cry There are so many birds on there...not sure why I even keep looking.

Think Positive....I placed a ad quite a while ago, stating my experience with birds and the void I HAD at that time for not having birds...Since then, I rcvd 2 Umbrella's with cage free of charge...All they wanted was a guarantee to take care of them and send pictures occasionally. I still send both families pictures monthly, or of anything funny and exciting they have done...I only posted once, how the other bird came to me over a year later is beyond me, but I ma thankful they found me!
There are some good people out there..Not trying to make a buck but looking ofr a forever home..
