Gerri's Info...

Gerri's Story...
Name: Gerri.
Species: Greenwing Macaw.
Age: Adult.
Sex: Female.
Adoption Fee: $600.
Status: Available after 9/17/2014.

Background and Personality: Gerri is a little shy until she gets used to someone but she is not aggressive. Once she knows someone she will step up on them, she is also stick trained. She likes to have her beak petted but needs a lot of trust before she will allow her head to be petted. She plucks her chest and tummy when she is stressed, and moving stresses her. She was adopted in 2012 but her owner had to return her when she was forced to move.

Animals are never euthanized due to overcrowding.

Our Adoption Process...

Our rescued parrots live in foster homes, are treated like companions (pets) and rehabilitated if necessary, therefore we have no shelter building. All of our birds stay in our volunteers' homes as fosters. We have found that this provides them with the best environment for successful rehabilitation. Because our birds are in private homes, they are only able to receive visitors by appointment. This is set up after an application has been filled out and a home visit performed. Our adoption process does take some time, generally two weeks. Our priority is not to have a speedy process, but a careful one that ensures proper placement of our companion birds. Multiple changes can be difficult for the bird, and we wish to ensure their safety.
Beak n Wings is not a source to acquire free animals. The adoption fees we charge help us defray costs we incur when providing for the birds in our care. It costs a lot to feed each bird an appropriate diet, and provide appropriate cages, toys, and veterinary care. In fact, veterinary care is usually our largest expense. The exact fees depend on the species of bird and are listed with the birds description.
