Adoptable Birds

Louis

  • Jenday Conure
  • $200.00 + $30 Membership Fee
  • Comes with cage
  • Comes with accessories/toys
Louis is a 4 year old Jenday Conure, DNA sexed male, currently flighted but has usually been clipped. The family is reluctantly rehoming him because he screeches a lot and seems to be anxious. He likes dancing to music, prefers women to men, but probably doesn't have to be exclusively a woman's bird. He was quite jealous of the owner's dog. He whistles, says "step up" and is working on "hi" and "hello". He really likes to be with people and needs attention, but probably would do best in a calm household and as mentioned before, will probably bond with the females of the house. He eats a pelleted diet, fruits and veg by trial and error, and loves a cooked pasta treat. Very cute bird, comes with cage, carrier, extra small cage, food, treats and toys. Vet check normal. Adoption fee $200 + $30 membership fee.

Private Adoptions & Small Parrots

From time to time WAES receives calls concerning smaller birds, such as budgies, finches, cockatiels and lovebirds, in need of adoptive homes. Though it is impractical for WAES to participate in the adoption process for these smaller birds, private adoptions are sometimes arranged between the parties. The Rescue Committee will help facilitate contact concerning private adoptions whenever possible. In the case of a private adoption, WAES neither arranges nor pays for the veterinary exam, disease testing, or health care, nor does WAES warrant the health of the bird. If you choose to adopt privately, please remember that the only way to know if a bird is ill or carrying a disease is to have an avian vet check the bird and perform various tests. Regardless of where or how you acquire a bird, any bird new to your home should be quarantined for at least 60 days to prevent the spread of disease and to help the bird gradually acclimate to its new environment.
