I'm trying to find my Goffins Sadie she's closed banded hatched at wingsong aviary the initals on the band is WA and the year I believe is 1994 or 1996. Sadie says her name and "Sadie Sadie pretty lady" Sadie was given to a woman I knew with a "return to me" agreement if Sadie didn't work out. The woman sold or gave Sadie away about 2 months later and never contacted me at all! Sadie is a screamer and may have changed hands several times by now. I have never forgivin myself for trusting this horrible woman and I'm trying all I can to locate Sadie.

The aggreement was verbal with many witnesses who are as mad as I am. I have been searching since she was first lost, it's just that I only found this forum a few days ago. Where is the Fostor Parrots site. The woman took off to florida, I tried reaching her through company e mail but received no reply, Big Surprise there!

Just a bit of an update on my lost bird and a HUGE thank you too all the people that have replied and expressed concern and offered advice. I was contacted by Marc Johnson from Foster Parrots and he had a Sadie last year that was adopted. I am hoping this is my Sadie and my search is over but if not I'll keep looking... This is a fabulous board, I wish I had known the "truth about cockatoos" years ago before I bought Sadie. They ARE a life long committment. Thats why I keep looking for Sadie, she's like a lost child and you never stop looking for a lost child either. Thanks everyone!

Not sure I'm doing this right because I didn't see my reply to you on the board. If I found Sadie in a good caring forever home I would be satisfied just to know where she was. If not, the band can prove who she is and I did have her DNA'd, if the band was sawed off. I didn't just "get Sadie off my hands". Sadie was begining to over preen her feathers and I felt if she was in a one bird home with exclusive attention by this "experienced" bird person who was just one town away she would be better off. thanks

I don't know Marc and I've never been to Foster Parrots, but from what I've heard about them, I can say that if I were you, I would feel much better already, because I don't believe they would put Sadie into a bad home. If she was placed by them, she's being taken care of by her new family and this family would have been screened very well. Foster Parrots has a good reputation among those of us who consider ourselves whistleblowers.
