I will be tending to the new arrivals well into the evening, but will post when I can.
Every one is gorgeous, and the receiving rescues are going to be very excited!
These are highly adoptable birds. I am so excited! Please say a nice word to everyone at Feathered Friends for allowing us to help and delivering the birds. They all did beautifully!

Paula N AshfieldMiss Vicki's Parrot Village, Inc thanks for explaining...I am afraid it is quite a bit of stress on the birds, moved to you and them moved so quickly to other rescues across the States....would it not be in the best interest of the birds to be fully quarantined and adopted from there? I just don't understand the unnecessary traumas these birds have to go thrugh especially since now you have a building to accommodate the quarantine in full.1   ·  2 days ago

Donna JacksonHow many parents did you rescue from FFF? Miss Vicki 🙏2 days ago

Miss Vicki's Parrot Village, IncPaula N Ashfield, first and foremost, if I were expected to keep the birds here, we would not have been able to transfer any of them, nor would be have been able to help the 50 we transferred last year.

We have a very serious problem here in GA because outside of FL, there are few parrot rescues, stores, vets, etc, but the birds still flow in from FL breeders and stores. We are faced with "do nothing" or 'adapt and overcome". We can leave birds in homes where they aren't wanted, or have them dropped off at animal control, or have them euthanized, but instead, we have worked to create a network of rescues where the birds can go. If there is a bird that is stressed just in the move here, that bird stays here, and that is what happened with one of the FFF amazons. He was stressed a bit, so he stays; I would not put him through another trip. For those that are well, they travel with little to no stress at all. There are rescues that have homes just waiting for birds, and we have birds just waiting to get in here, so this works, and the vast majority of birds are adopted from those rescues in a fraction of the time they would be from here, so while there may be a few bumps for a few weeks, it makes it well worth it when both birds and families find one another.

Donna Jackson, we definitely didn't rescue them from FFF; we just helped them transfer some off their porch because they wanted to lower their numbers of birds in cages so they could focus on just aviaries. It would take forever, especially in their location, to adopt out 41 birds, so we just sped up the process a bit! lol6   ·  2 days ago

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who have supported The Village and shared all of our ups and downs over the last few years. We rarely encounter a problem, and even though I was well warned there would be backlash for working with another rescue to transfer birds, it still came as a bit of a shock. Fortunately, I think I am part duck and just let it roll, sometimes only after a huge stomping mad fit, but roll off none the less.
We are very, very fortunate to have such wonderful supporters; your kind words and offerings of help are priceless. You may not see birds in rescue as being lucky, but with friends like all of you, I think they think they are!

Audrey TappYou are awesome ♥♥♥1   ·  3 days ago

Lauren QueenYou're doing it for the birds. These people berating you and FFF are truly psychotic. They attack FFF for "not caring for the birds" but when you care for them, Vicki? They're also upset. They are mentally ill and not worth your time. You are a blessing to these birds in need. You are blessed with maxing donations and supporters because of the amazingly good works you do. The people berating you can't even be touched by the light that shines in you. I truly pray that one day they can open their eyes and start to do good, but for now it is people like you who bear the burden with dignity. We love you.4   ·  3 days ago
