Rehoming a bird

Rehoming a bird requires more thought than most people think.
Some birds, especially parrots, can live longer than some humans. So you’ll need to plan for this lifetime and the next.
Tips for getting to know a bird
  1. Stand back so he/she relaxes
  2. Once they’re relaxed, check they’re sleek, lively and healthy (fluffy and bored might mean not too well)
  3. If you’re adding a bird to your collection, make sure you keep them apart for a month to start 

Specialist care
Birds need particular attention. So when you get yours, find a local vet who specialises in bird health. Your new feathered friend will thank you for it.
