I found a green parakeet flying outside in Massachusetts 8 years ago. It came down to me from the trees and let me catch it. I took him home and fed him and trained him and have had him ever since. He is in perfect health and very happy. Miracles happen, and these birds are smart. There is a possibility they could have flown down to someone like my bird came to me. Live with peace in your heart that you taught your birds love, and maybe they continued to find love.

Expertise

I`ve been raising/breeding/handfeeding/selling parrots for over 20 years (parakeets/budgies, cockatiels, 6 subspecies of conures, parrotlets, amazons, lovebirds, etc.). I've been published in "Budgies" and "Cockatiels" offered by Bow Tie Productions, and have written avian articles for publication in England. I can provide advice in raising healthy birds, handfeeding/weaning babies, some health problems, nail/beak/wing clipping, general husbandry, etc. I also have experience with racing/showing homing pigeons. I cannot diagnose specific illness over this website. If you suspect your bird is ill or if you have an emergency, contact a certified avian veterinarian or emergency pet clinic ASAP.
