It's been a while, but I wanted to let everyone know that I will soon be surrendering my lovebird Monkey to a bird rescue. I feel that I cannot care for her properly anymore. I've tried my best, but I feel I'm not giving her the best care she could have.

I'm very sorry to hear that Kassy...
Can't you possibly contact the breeder friend you got Monkey from to get her back? It's their grown chick after all and they can possibly welcome her back.
If that's not feasible, then maybe screening some good homes for her before resorting to the bird rescue.

I hope your lovie will find a great new home soon.

I've sent the breeder a message. I've also copied this post over onto a parrot site. The bird rescue is a last resort for me. The wait list for surrendering can be long for the bird rescue, so I have time.

All right then, hopefully someone will adopt Monkey before the time comes for her to go to the bird rescue.
If it weren't for the different continents and countries, I would have gladly welcomed her into my flock.
I'm wishing your Monkey all the best.

I'm very sorry to hear that.

I sincerely hope the breeder will take the lovebird back.
Many breeders ask that any birds purchased from them be returned anytime the owner determines they can no longer care for the bird.

Rather than simply sending the breeder a message, I would strongly suggest you call and actually speak to the individual about the situation.

I know if I'd sold a bird to someone, I would hope for that courtesy if they could no longer care for it.

I just recall that he has gotten out of lovebird breeding. I will let everyone know what happens when he responds.

The breeder has gotten out of lovebird breeding, but he has added me to a Facebook group dedicated to finding good homes for lovebirds. Fingers crossed I can find Monkey a new home!

Oh gosh, Kassy, I'm sorry to hear about this. I really wish I lived closer to you, I'd love to take Monkey. Unfortunately I'm quite the distance away. I really hope you find him a good home. I'm sorry that it's come to this, but I believe you're doing the right thing.

-Kristen

Sorry to hear that. Rehoming pets is always upsetting for everyone involved.
May I ask why you're rehoming Monkey?
