Unhappy Missing bird companionship

Been feeling really rough recently about not having my companion flock anymore. Birds have been such a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember and I haven't been birdless since I was about 8? I'm hating it. Obviously I've got the aviary birds, but they're at my grandparents. They're all hands off. I just really miss it sorry for posting and being depressing! I get my daily fix here, but I can't help be jealous of you all

I have budgies, but I literally lay awake hours at night pining over macaws and pionus, and I can't get one because I'm a student.

I know it's not the same thing, but I've been so upset about it, I can't remember my life before I wanted to adopt a parrot. I volunteer sometimes twice a week and attend bird clubs to get my fix, but sometimes it makes it worse.

I could just cry. So, I feel you, in a weird sort of way.

No way you can get a budgie or something? I didn't here the whole reason why you are birdless now, so I don't know the situation, but I've gathered a little from the other threads.

best of luck to you, and you are totally excused for posting sad things. I UNDERSTAND.

Why can't you just have one bird companion pet?

My house isn't safe. The necropsy results came back inconclusive and so it is believed that there was something in the house. We haven't figured out what it was. We lived the birdy life, no toxins or anything, no non-stick, no plug ins. Absolutely nothing we'd of done ourselves. If it was an infectious disease, then I will have to continue to fog my house with F10 every month for about 6 months minimum... It's a risk I'm just not willing to take

I understand where you're coming from Kate. Do you not still have Coco? When you will not be a student? I'm still a student and I've always found a way I don't want to get a budgie because I have an enormous flock of them. As stupid as it may sound, I've kept a lot of the young I've bred myself back this year and it HAS been tempting to put one to one side but every time I do I feel guilty and let them be with the aviary flock anyway!

I AM getting another companion parrot, in the next month or so. I've promised his owner I will have him and that I will stick to BUT he will have to stay at my grandparents (I go over just about every day anyway to sort my flock out still, gives me something to do) until my house is deemed safe. I believe I can do surface swabs in the bird rooms to see if there's anything lingering around. It's another 'large' bird anyway, in case you're wondering

I never heard what happened. Did you lose your entire flock at once?

The indoor flock yes. It was Darwin first, a few days later I lost all but two in one room and then the following week the rest went

I feel you Daisy.
I haven't gone through the loss you have but I sure as heck wish I could have a Parrot or two around. Reptiles are great but they aren't the companions that Parrots are!
I have been missing having a Bird around SO much that I've been contemplating selling a few of my Scaly's to get one!
Even a hand-tame Budgie or 'Tiel again would be amazing.

Did this thread inspire you? Cause I just saw your new thread I got the hatchlin' corn snake tonight and my gosh she has grown and is VERY pretty. Will be putting photos on here but on Instagram already It's horrible not having them around. I haven't announced the other bird yet because he's coming to me under sad circumstances and I didn't want to be all "LOOK AT MY NEW BIRD", if you get what I mean. He's a bird from this forum though I hope you get your companion soon!

Yes, LOL. Congrats on the new Snakey baby!
And I hope that I can get a new Parrot soon!
