    Re: One of the craziest craigslist ads yet...

    For when the ad is gone, I'll copy it over,

    "I have Sulphur Crested Cockatoo (Peachi) and Peach front conure (Gizmo), they are attached and are in the same cage, they both are very smart birds, I cann't give enough time to them, so If some one wants to trade "finches" or and "lovebirds" for these beautifull birds. please let me know. I am only looking for a trade, Seriuos Interesties only PLEASE!!!!! Thank you"

    The birds look in good health, but that sure seems like a TINY round cage.

    Scary that they share the cage. Scary that she expects someone to give her a lovebird if she doesnt have time for the fids she has now.

    Come on, there are far worse ads out there!

    I am of the opinion that if properly acclimated birds of different species CAN get along with proper supervision and care...the only trouble is that these two are not getting it.

    I hope they both find wonderful homes.

    Mom to Ducky! (female cinnamon GCC)...THANK YOU Keet for the gorgeous sig!!
    Won't you come see me after 12am?

    Yes i'm sure different species can get along just fine, but it's still a scary thing to see that. One little fight and that 'Too could tear that Conure to shreds without thinking twice. They are also in a what looks to be rusted (could be the color) round cage with no toys, that i can see. Now of course toys aren't a "necessity" but they must be incredibly bored just sitting in that cage all day. I am surprised that they aren't plucked. Sure there are worse ads out there but it's still a very irresponsible thing to do, just throw a Conure in a cage with a Cockatoo and expect them to get along, then go and trade them for even more birds.

    Wow... okay... what a trade...

    Awful cage though.... looks like the only perch is that skinny iron bar they both seem to be standing on.

    They both look to be in surprisingly good health and condition though.

    It should be freaking MANDATORY to take a month long class on whatever species you adopt before you bring it home.

    This one isn't so bad. I mean, at least she's downgrading to a more manageable kind of bird and not trading them for a new lawn mower or something....

    And if the birds are bonded and don't harm each other, there's nothing wrong with them sharing a cage. In general, its a bad idea to mix dissimilar birds, but such rules can be broken under the right circumstances.

    That is true...

    That is true also, i just wouldn't take the chance. I get nervous with my Conures all hanging out together because even they have little fights here and there (mostly Oliver and the Suns) and i don't let them play together unless i am in the room.
    I'm just glad they actually get along, because that poor little Conure would be a goner if the 'Too wasn't so nice.

    See I have to politely disagree with that idea. Maybe it's just my experience, but I've had two separate cases where different species were housed together for years, then all of the sudden started fighting. Maybe hormones, who knows. The point is that you can't ever really be 100% sure. My GCC and my lovie were super bonded to eachother, and I would let them hang out in the same cage supervised, but one day months later they started fighting again for no apparent reason.
