I use to rescue/foster. The birds I've talked about (I'm on talk parrotlets way more often) were all housed in my house. But, they weren't my "personal pets". Although some of them I had for several years - could be because of behavioral issues, taming, just not finding the right home etc. But, once they did find a suitable home, they would be adopted. I've had birds for close to 12 years now, and probably a good 8 of those years was donated to fostering/rescuing.
Although I would have kept all those birds if I could, but it was better that they also got homes that fully suited their needs. Where they could be the only bird, or with one or two others. Not 12-15. LOL.....
Either way, it was a good experience. I got the privilage to work with many different species and learn about them also. Unfortunately, I don't foster or rescue anymore, really. I've done a few parrotlets, but we started a family and just don't have the time to donate like I once did. It was a full time job! Maybe sometime in the future I would again, but I would maybe like to look at breeding instead as I've never experienced that aspect of bird ownership. Well see though...
