Gauteng

Hi, Gauteng residents!

Here are some of the parrots in our system that are currently in foster care and seeking their new forever families. 

You can start by completing an adoption application (see buttons below). We try to avoid inter-provincial travel unless we really struggle to find a home in the original region, so this page is dedicated to applicants in Gauteng only.

Please kindly note that we are a volunteer-run organisation so it might take some time for us to get to your application, especially because we are currently trying to work through a backlog that has occurred as well.

To my adoring fans

I have decided to put wing to keyboard today.

Firstly a BIG thanks for all my well wishes and the wonderful offers for a forever home.

As much as I would love to live with you all and I have to tell you a few things about myself. At almost 19 years old I am pretty set in my ways and my forever home should be that my forever home.

I am an anxious boy and require medication twice a day. This means visits to the Vet to make sure my dosage is correct and to get my prescription when I need it. My feathers and skin become dry and I get sprayed with some nice smelling stuff to keep me from picking at my skin.

I pluck and unfortunately I am unable to stop after a certain point and this leads to self-mutilation. A great way to keep me from this is to distract me with toys and foraging boxes. My beak is strong and chew trough them in no time.

My foster dad works from home and checks up on me to make sure I am being a good boi.

I do scream sometimes when I feel alone or my cage is covered at night. I have night terrors and I am comforted by my foster mom because I don’t ALWAYS want a male around my cage.

I can fly due to the fact that my wings haven’t been clipped but I am struggling I don’t have a great sense of direction and recall training is the bird equivalent to human algebra.

Food here is pretty great except for the almonds I don’t care much for those but I am not aggressive when you clean my cage or feed me. I love apples, popcorn and grapes I can be coaxed in to a head scratch if you have those. I am still very unsure of humans and will only accept touches when I am brave. My humans leave my cage open but I don’t always like to explore.

I am used to other birds but don’t mind them much I prefer my toys.

Talking is not my best trick but I do have smile that lights up the room.

My needs are quite extensive but I have the potential to be an amazing addition to your flock.

My ideal home is one with experience and the required skills to look after a bird that is not hand tamed but needs you to work with me daily.
