Nancy, these two budgies might be getting a second chance at finding a loving caring home, they are not in the cleanest conditions true but they are seemingly quite healthy and I hope they do get rehomed to a family that do love them .

Maybe but I always worry about people giving away animals for free on craigslist. There are some shady people out there who take free animals and don't treat them well. There are warnings all over craigslist not to give your pets away for free. I hope this is not the case and the birds get a nice new home. They look pretty good don't they?

Yes they o look well fed, though by the looks only seed, I know how you feel I am the same. Only the other day somebody was giving away a beautiful pedigree Staffy on Buy and sell here locally, I actually PM the lady and asked her to be very vigilant and choose carefully regarding the rehoming. It is heartbreaking

I've done the same. I've seen guinea pigs offered for free and have emailed owners explaining this and have asked them to ask for a small rehoming fee. Guess I'm not too trusting.

I must be living in a blessed area, even being in 'the low rent district', I seldom see something like this on CL, or animals in bad shape (we had a huge seizure operation in the next town over though, nearly 150 animals, mostly birds)

I would probably - even though I need more birds like a hole in my head - go and get the birds.
I do have a spare cage, etc, and 2 more eat not so much more seeds.....

But it is good to see people giving up animals they can't/won't take care of, rather than hoard them.

I don't dare go get them - hubby would have a coronary lol. If it weren't for him I'd probably be a hoarder ha ha.
