Dallas Texas – Found an abandoned Quaker Parrot by dumpster. Cannot keep it.?
Category: Quaker Parrot Cages
I found a green parrot by my apartment dumpster. He was abandoned in a filthy cage. He looks like a Quaker. Seems to be healthy & friendly. My landlord gave me permission to keep him/her on my balcony only temporarily, but my building does not allow pets. I know nothing about birds. I don’t know what to do with it. I can’t seem to find a rescue group or anything. Nobody I know will take it. I live in Dallas Ft. Worth area. Can anyone offer any suggestions.
The weather is warm here in Texas… even at night. She’s ok on the patio. It has a tall locked privacy fence too. I went to Pet Smart tpday & got some parrot food. I’m going to call around to a few vets & egroups. I’ll keep you all updated. Thanks for the advice.
“DuckRescue”, I’m going to email your friend & see how it goes.
Also, you can email ME at firstname.lastname@example.org. Apparently this parrot is a she, because it layed an egg. I moved her from the 2nd floor balcony to my lower level patio where there’s less wind. She seems comfortable. I’m sure if there’s anything special you’re supposed to do when a bird lays an egg.
Ok guys… I’ve read that the egg won’t hatch unless there’s a mate to fertilize it, right? Does anyone know for sure? Oh my gosh, this has been an experience. I’ve never rescued a bird before. Much less one that starts laying eggs.
Good news. I found a local lady who rescues birds. She wants to adopt the parrot. Her daughter is a veterinarian. We’ve talked & made arrangements. She seems to be a perfect fit for the quaker. She’s coming to pick her up on Thursday & will be bringing a new cage. :)
