Debra and I have taken in four pre-owned parrots in the last few months. All of them are wonderful, pet-quality birds that we would keep forever if we had the room. We realize that we can't and they would be better off in individual homes where they can each be the center of attention to the right owners.
Sugar is a two year-old female Congo. She was weaned by us and sold 30 months ago. She was displaced when her owner accepted a job off-shore and realized that it would be best if she went to a home where she could be loved daily instead of monthly. She is the center of our attention and lives in our living area. She is very loving and talks up a storm. She acts like a newly weaned baby.
Calypso is a five year old female Quaker. We can't give her the attention she deserves. We never met a Quaker that talks as much as her. Quakers are small birds with big personalities. She gives bunches of kisses and loves to hang out on our shoulders.
Gabriel is a 12 year-old male Mollucan Cockatoo. He is new to our flock and is extremely shy but very gentle. Loves to be petted and talks all day long. He comes with his pet, Porquita, a Sun Conure. "Porky" sleeps under Gabes wing at night and preens him all day long. This is an unusual couple but it's a great relationship. Porky will march up to you and give you kisses and bob her head like she wants to feed you but you can't touch her. She will nip you but not hard.
It will sadden us to give up any of these birds but we realize that we can't keep all of the birds who arrive at our home. We are caretakers whose job is to see that they go to loving homes.
We will not ship these birds. We have a responsibility and commitment to their previous owners to see that they go to the perfect home. If you think you may qualify please email or call us at 985/892-3527 or 504/415-3493 for more information. We'll try to publish photos of each bird in the coming weeks.
