Lowell Location Announcement

Our Lowell location will be temporarily closed on October 3rd through at least November 15th. One of the owners has a surgery scheduled and will need to be focused on healing. If the doctor gives the okay and everything is going better than planned we could reopen sooner but there is also the possibility that we won't open until after that date, as well. This means our Lowell location will not be accepting any intakes or doing any adoptions during this time. We are sorry for this inconvenience and hope you understand.

 

Mork & Mindi 

Mork and Mindi are a bonded pair of blue fronted Amazons, they are 40+ years old. Mindi likes females and will come over to say pretty girl or I don’t know & get a head scratch. Mork has a wild caught band and much prefers to be independent and left alone. He will take a treat though. Although they are bonded, they cannot be housed in the same cage. They both have arthritis, they both do not step up and are just looking for a home to retire at without high expectations. Mork does have an old eye injury that we have treated with antibiotics and some eye ointment but it is permanently damaged. He cannot see out of it very well. If you are willing to open your home up to two old souls, please submit an adoption application to get started!

Kiwi

Kiwi is a male eclectus who is in his 20’s. He’s not a cuddly bird, he loves to be out and enjoys watching TV and listening to music. Kiwi has a very large vocabulary! He needs someone who understands the eclectus diet and knows how to work with an escape artist. 😉 You will be required to have a cage that is 1 1/2 times his wingspan.

Tiny

Tiny is a Jenday conure who is ready to find his forever home. He prefers to have one person all to himself and has previously gone after kids, we have not had that issue here but it is something that needs to be considered. Tiny loves to be with his person, will step up and loves a good head scratch. He also gives kisses! Tiny would do best with someone who has experience with birds as we have been working with him on aggression and he has made leaps and bonds. If you think you would be a good fit for Tiny, fill out our adoption application!

Adoption Fee: $250

Sonny

Blue and Gold Macaw

Sonny is a 21 year old female(has laid eggs in the past) blue and gold macaw who will not tolerate men. Once you form a bond, she is very playful and sweet. She doesn’t say much, but does whistle often. Sonny has had a toe removed in July 2020 to help with pressure sores/mobility issues from an injury from a previous home. Her balance has improved but she still does use her beak to steady herself when on your arm. Sonny’s adopter needs to be a female who has large bird experience.

Ricky & Negan

Ricky is a hybrid(sulfur/Triton) and Negan is an umbrella, both are males. These boys will require an experienced home but they are both very food motivated so they are ready to start training. Ricky is a little nervous around people but we believe will quiet down in a home.

Negan is a very handsome umbrella cockatoo that is roughly 12 years old. He has had a few homes in the past but is confident now that he has a friend he will find a home. Negan is a little more outgoing than Ricky and of course tow male cockatoos will keep you on your toes.

We try to set up our new bird owners the best we can so $250 of your adoption fee is used to purchase you a one year membership in Level One and the Parrot Project through the Animal Behavioral Center. This membership give you the tools needed to establish a relationship, target training, learning how to prevent negative behaviors like screaming and biting(which can be a real challenge with cockatoos). It also provides you with a community of supportive knowledgable bird owners led by Lara Joseph.

Lacy

Lacy is a 18-year-old DNA verified female Bare Eye cockatoo. She came from another rescue and communicated using her beak so we worked through that and I feel she is ready to a home that is willing to continue positive reinforcement training. She still struggles with the concept of stepping up but with continued training I don’t feel like it will be very difficult. She is mainly indifferent to other birds, so while she does not crave a intimate relationship yet with another bird it would definitely be a plus if there were others in the home. She is a more independent cockatoo which is why she is available to go by herself and will not be overly demanding of her person, unlike umbrellas. She has a large wing span and requires a cage at the very least 45 inches long, a 5 x 3 would be a great size cage and they are readily available on Amazon for about $600. We try to set up our new bird owners the best we can so $250 of your adoption fee is used to purchase you a one year membership in Level One and the Parrot Project through the Animal Behavioral Center.

If you think you would be a good fit or are interested in being considered for adoption, please fill out our adoption application.

Merlin

Merlin is a very handsome umbrella cockatoo (U2) who turns 17 years old this year. Unfortunately he has not found his forever home, even though they really enjoyed him at his last home after Covid came and they needed to work from home they decided to surrender him back to the rescue. Follow the wingspan study guidelines for cage size and he has a wingspan at 37.5 inches so at the very least his cage needs to be 56 inches long, but he would be much happier in a larger cage like a 6 x 3. I do have a relationship with a cage company if you need to purchase one. Adoption fee is $500 and that includes a one year membership to the level one and parrot project provided by the animal behavior center in Ohio available through Facebook and headed by Lara Joseph. 

This membership give you the tools needed to establish a relationship, target training, learning how to prevent negative behaviors like screaming and biting(which can be a real challenge with cockatoos). It also provides you with a community of supportive knowledgable bird owners led by Lara Joseph.

Firecracker

Fire cracker is a male umbrella (U-2). Firecracker was born on Fourth of July in 1998 and was owned by the same people his entire life until last year. I follow the wing span study for appropriate cage size so these two need a cage at least 56 inches long but I recommend a 6 x 3 with a removable divider. I have a relationship with a cage company if one needs to be purchased. This guy is lot of fun and will flourish in an active home or a quiet home if things are done correctly. To help ensure that this happens part of their thousand dollar adoption fee is spent on purchasing you a one-year online subscription to the animal behavior centers level one and parrot project, headed by Lara Joseph. This membership give you the tools needed to establish a relationship, target training, learning how to prevent negative behaviors like screaming and biting(which can be a real challenge with cockatoos). It also provides you with a community of supportive knowledgable bird owners led by Lara Joseph.
