This forum is really wonderful and supportive and helpful! I have not posted before today because our cockatiels were not long with us...
Sadly, our two baby cockatiels both died...our vet said the pet store should not have sold us babies that were not weined as we were not experienced enough for them and they were too fragile...we did our best but we obviously didn't know what we were getting ourselves into.
Our hearts are broken and we can't bear to adopt again.
I am wondering if anyone could suggest how I might sell or donate our bird related items.
I reached out to a rescue online but never heard back, i posted on craigslist and no takers. I have two cages, two travelers, lots of food, toys, glass cages with heating pads, etc. I hate to throw them away-I paid $1000 for all of this stuff and our babies were only with us 2 and 4 weeks.
Any suggestions would be helpful. We live in Chicago. Most items too big to ship.
Since there are so many bird families on this forum, if anyone is near Chicago and can pick up everything it is yours. We just want it to go to someone that needs them and that won't just resell it.
I've been in contact with the director about meeting them and seeing if it would be possible to separate them (I only have room and time for one more in my home!), and I'm trying to get my Dad on board. They don't much about them. It looks like there's two females and a male. No idea on ages. No idea if they're tame or not, because they are scared out of their minds right now.
Whether or not I'm able to adopt one or not, please PLEASE share this as much as you can! They're terrified right now. They need a rescue or an adopter! I've sent out emails to a couple of bird rescues and shared with a few people I know for now.
