    Finding homes for baby cockatiels

    I love watching our pair raising their babies & watching them grow so fast. We now have 8 cockatiels & 1 green check conure. We are keeping the 1st baby, BeBe, Pearl pied & 1 of our newest ones, that is an albino. I would keep them all, but my husband its too many. I don't want to separate mom & dad. We have slowed their breeding down. I would like to start selling some of them & any new arrivals in the future. Any suggestions? I want to make sure they go to good homes.

    Hi Mindy, and welcome to the community! You have an awesome flock. I would suggest you call some of the avian vets in your area, and ask them if they have clients that would be interested in homing a baby. Also, I understand Facebook has several bird forums. You might be able to find some interested folks there as well. I know it is so hard to part with them, been there and done that before, but knowing they will have a loving home does help somewhat. Do keep us updaed. I just love those babies!!!

    Hi Mindy, you might try to find a bird dealer, or even a professional breeder in your area that could give you some local input. If you decide to sell the birds yourself, I hope and trust that you'll make sure the new owners have an understanding about birds and can give them good homes.

    Best of luck in rehoming your babies! I know it's hard to do for us sometimes. But it's always nice to keep your personal flock to a manageable level and not get lost in the shuffle by having too many birds. The babies will be happier, too, if they get personal attention from a new owner.

    There was a Bird Expo in our area this past weekend (Motor City Bird Expo, Detroit MI). I didn't make it to this fair, but they usually have a couple of shows a year. Perhaps you can contact a dealer / breeder.

    mewe.com is a great new social media forum that allows bird sales there are lots of groups dedicated to parrot breeders by state I've found it to be good when networking with buyers

    True, I would like to foster all of them, but do not have the space to do that. I just take in as many as I can handle.
