    I'm going to start fostering for the local rescue starting in January so I can start getting more experience with different birds. I don't have much else to say about it right now, but I do look forward to this! :D

    Very generous of you. And as a volunteer with a rescue in desperate need of foster families, thank you!

    Wonderful to get involved! We do not do much fostering at AHW, but I know it is critical for many shelters to be able to help the next bird.

    I apologize if you thought about this already, but it is such a huge concern with AHW, that I am always on the soapbox :) Please be sure the rescue you foster for has at an absolute minimum performed disease testing on any bird before you bring them home and expose your personal feathered babies. The absolute minimum they need to test is PBFD and psittacosis (chlamydia).

    Awesome again for getting involved! Have a great holiday!

    Oh I won't be able to start fostering until January, so there won't be any pictures or bird stories for a while, sorry!
