    If you had been present when your husband signed the documents to pass the bird over to the charity then you will have no chance of winning your case, How long ago did this happen? As with any contract there is a cooling off period when either party can withdrew from it so how long was it before you notified them that you wanted your bird backbut then the charity will have the rite to charge you any expenses
  2. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    There is no cooling off period for the "seller/bequeather" just the "buyer/receiver"

    Evening everyone new to the parrot club im Darren with a 4/5 month b/g macaw called rio
  8. @ Silent:
    With the winter days rolling in, best way to keep a bird warm
  9. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Indoors or out doors @Silent
  10. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Outdoors I would say if aviary bird then roost box with tube heaters
  11. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Indoors the house should be warmer inside perhaps a cover over the cage if your bird will allow, ensure no drafts, if your bird plucks then you need to put the heating on and make sure it doesn't drop below 19 degrees as they shiver off their weight too easy trying to keep warm, If putting the central heating on then make sure the humidity is watched pop a bowl of water on the radiator so it evaporates
  12. @ Silent:
    Heating has been broken for years, hence my question and 19c, what do I do if I can't keep it above that?
  13. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    is your bird plucked?
  14. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    If it not plucked / lots of bare skin showing its not going to be an issue as birds have an awesome lot of down that is like a right good duvet
  15. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    just make sure he/she isn't in a draft near a window or close to door going outside were he can get a nasty draft when its opening and closing
  16. @ Silent:
    Not plucked at all, no skin showing but Vert is rather young. Also she is upstairs so there isn't much of a chance of a draft
  17. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Brilliant nothing to worry about then :)
  18. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Feather down is awesome and they trap a layer of air inside it and it heats up and its trapped by the outer feathers, Snuggly!!
  19. Kel @ Kel:
    Hi I have a ringneck who is about 5 months old. I have had him/her for 4 weeks now . I was getting there slowly on his/terms coming to me for food and just as I thought I had got it there was a lot of youths outside on motorbikes who all started to rev at the same time, this really spoked ozzy and now I feel like I’ve gone 5 steps forward to go 10 back. Any help. Thank you
  20. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    @Roz think the above one is one for you :)
  21. Roz @ Roz:
    Don’t worry - just start again from the beginning. You’ll find that progress is faster this time because the bird has been through it before. Maybe leave the radio on too as background noise to protect against any future frights. Go slow with Ozzy and keep pairing yourself with good experiences for him like favourite foods/treats, etc. Relax around him or he’ll pick up your stress.
  22. Kel @ Kel:
    Thank you, I always have music on for him at the minute he/she is liking elvis. One of my biggest problems I’m having is getting him in his cage at night now. I don’t want to catch him/her myself as I feel this is wrong. He/she has full run of downstairs to fly around and investigate as it’s their home
  23. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
  24. Roz @ Roz:
    @Kel, it would be great if you could start a thread on the main forum so that it is easier to answer you in more detail. 😊 The general answer to getting Ozzy back in his cage is to make it more reinforcing, eg have food or a treat waiting in the cage for him. Would love to discuss this further with you on the main forum where others can chip in with ideas too 😊
