I raised cockatiels years ago, getting started while working in a pet store near Chicago. I loved it. I met and was taught many things by Dr. Ted Lafaber during that time. He was a wonderful man and his love for the birds was something to see.
Since we have started raising birds I have many friends that have decided that they would like to have a bird. I sell some to friends, I give some to friends and I say NO to some friends. Before ever letting a bird go to a new home I make sure the new owner knows what they are in for. I invite them over about 5pm when our pet birds are going through their daily screaming match, and before I have vacumed the food they have thrown from the cage, I ask them if they can live with this for the next 20 to 70 years, If they pass the test and say yes then I send them home to research and think for a week.
I know this may be a bit extreme but we are in it for the love of the bird not to make money. Bird people at the very least give your new owneres a list of websites or books as well as a number where they can call you for assistance if needed. New bird owners. Don't ignore your bird if you decide you cant keep it contact the animal shelter and ask for a list of local bird clubs there are many that will take an unwanted bird off your hands.
Birds are a life time committment. RESEARCE RESEARCH....EDUCATE EDUCATE
