Stellar is an amazing friend for a special human who has a lot of time for him. I mean, a LOT of time. Stellar wants to do everything with you - shower, breakfast, watching TV, talking and interacting. Ringneck parakeets are highly social and need a lot of attention. You'll hear about it from them if you don't.
Stellar has originally come from a home that doted on him and bonded well. Sadly the home situation fell apart for his humans and Stellar needed a new home, so was brought to us to find the best possible human for him. Stellar comes with a range of toys and perches from his last home.
As a young bird, Stellar was found lost and dehydrated in a backyard of some nice people who brought him to a rescue (who mistakenly thought he was a girl as his ring had not yet come through - hence the name Stellar).
Stellar is now only a year old and has already learned to say so many different phrases, including 'peek-a-boo', 'where's mummy?', 'whatcha doin?' and many more. You will find him keen to learn and show-off how clever he is.
Stellar has been raised by a female and seems to click faster with women than with men. We would be happy to consider a family with another ringneck parrot - NOT FOR BREEDING!
This will be a very strict application process as he has high attention needs and deserves to be spoilt. He is a wonderful boy with so much love to give.
Stellar is in good health with no known illness or injury.
Vet records will be transferred to you.
All animals are adopted, never sold, and an adoption contract is required in each case.
We generally bring the animal(s) to you and reserve the right the inspect the housing and garden at this time. That marks the beginning of a 30 day trial adoption period.
We are committed to supporting you throughout the life of the animal you adopt, so we are here for advice or assistance where possible. We want you and your new family member to have a long happy life together so we will do what we can to ensure this.
As a guide, the following terms appear in the chicken adoption form that is required to be signed to complete the adoption. Slightly different adoption forms exist for different species but the overall principles remain the same.
1. A minimum of 3 chickens must be adopted unless you have a flock of your own already.
2. The chickens are NEVER to be killed no matter how old they get or if they stop laying eggs - which one day they will do - except for the case of humane euthanasia when all other alternatives have been exhausted.
3. If medical attention is required you commit to taking them to a good vet without delay and without concern for the cost of their treatment.
4. You do not use these chickens to make a profit.
5. You give these ladies the love they deserve. They have come from hell and are entitled to the best you can give them.
6. If the adoption is unsuitable for any reason at any time in the future you will return them to the carer rather than selling them or killing them.
7. They are never to be eaten.
8. Chickens must have a suitable garden area to roam and explore.
9. You must maintain adequate fox-proof housing.
