    Because my pulmonologist says it is too risky to keep parrots due to a recent serious reaction in my lungs, we are having to rehome a 20 yo tame B&G male with his stainless steel cage and supplies. We had just bought him about 6-8 weeks ago. Just putting him on here in case anyone is near me and is interested. We traveled a distance just for him. He's a funny guy and rather quiet. He does call out about 1-2 times a week. Only lasting a couple of seconds. This is good because he has an unfortunate singing voice.

    We live next to Omaha NE.

    We do have 2 other birds but since we are already bonded, we are rehoming the newest one first in hopes to cause less upset in his life..

    So sorry that you need to rehome. Hope you find a wonderful new home for him.
    Hope that things get better with your respiratory issues.

    I am doing better after the initial illness, and we have since segregated them from me and they are on their own air system so their air and my air do not mix. Still on high dose steroids, for the 3-4th week, have been coming down on the level of oxygen. Was on 10 liters, now during the day I am on 6-7 and 10 at night. The hard part is, we are not positive what has caused this. But like so many things, once you tell your pulmonologist you have birds, it is automatically them that is the cause, not all the flooding and mold count that happened at the same time I got so sick. Have had all kinds of fowl for many years, cleaning barns etc with no issue. Suddenly bam. Oh well. Life is a strange journey.

    The blessing is, this house has a separate HVAC system for the addition to the house, so we can take our time to find the right homes. And Larry spends a lot of time back there with them making toys, talking to them, foodies, etc. I do miss them. I get to hear them chattering at least. Silly buggers.
