If you need to rehome your macaw contact me (Chicago, IL)

I am looking for a macaw that is in need of his/her forever home. I rather adopt one than get one from a breeder. Please let me know if you or someone you know needs to find a home for their macaw.

Where are you located? I suggest checking local bird rescues, and online sites such as Craigslist and Kijiji/eBay classifieds.

I am located in Chicago. I check those sites everyday to see if something popped up but a lot of people on Craigslist and such want as much money as the breeders do and I don't want to spend $1000 buying from someone that I don't know what I am getting if that makes sense. I rather take one that NEEDS a home instead of going to a breeder.

Yes I have seen that post about the two Blue and Golds. I have contacted the shelter and they said both of them have been adopted already.

Aw darn! They really should take the ad down, then. I saw that there are quite a few for rehome on CL but you're right, the fees are all over $1k. If you search for "macaw" in for sale instead of pets, though, you'll find a couple cheaper. I saw one for $600 and another for $700. Depending on what kind of cage they come with, even $1000 could be a good deal as a good cage can run you almost that much by itself. It's a shame people never want to rehome parrots for a reasonable fee, but it might be worth meeting a few and seeing if you click with any of them. Maybe the owners would be willing to come down a bit on the price too.

Did you search kijiji Chicago, I saw a re-home for a blue and gold for a reasonable price ($750 or best offer depending on home). I don't know how close he is to you.
