Would you be able to rent a room in a house, get some room mates? alternatively, you can see if it's possible to bring him with you to campus in the dorm room.
Renting a place would be pretty expensive, and I really don't have any savings or anything, although it's not a bad idea. As for taking Indigo with me, I have looked into it and as far as I can tell most colleges don't allow any pets in dorms. But thank you for the advice! I still have about a year before college so I definitely have time to weight my options.Would you be able to rent a room in a house, get some room mates? alternatively, you can see if it's possible to bring him with you to campus in the dorm room.
Thank you for the advice! I live in NYC. Like I said before, I still have about a year before college, so I have time to weigh my options, but if I do ultimately decide to rehome Indigo I'll be sure to ask if there's anyone on the forum willing to take him. And I'd be sure to ask that person questions and make sure they'd take good care of him, preferably I'll be able to find someone who already has budgies and has a lot of experience so I'd know he'd be in good hands. Thank you for the bird rescue link, I was actually thinking about looking into rescue organizations as a sort of back up, so that's very helpful.Where are you located? There may be members on this forum that would be willing to take your budgie.
justmoira has offered some good alternatives.
If none of those work and you are certain you prefer to rehome him, then you will need to have a list of questions ready to ask the prospective new owners.
Alternately, you can see if there are bird rescue organizations near you that take in budgies in need of rehoming.
