Rehoming African Greys

I have 2 African Greys which I sadly have to rehome. My question is, would it be detrimental to them if I am unable to rehome them as a pair?

Hi there, please, please, try your best NOT to separate them. Please DO NOT separate them, and I'm NOT asking you but I'm BEGGING you with my palms clasp together and I'm on my knees begging you, please DO NOT separate them. You didn't give much information so I don't know why you'd want to rehome them. They'll greive and die for one another if they're separated. Remember that they'd be already missing you and hurting; why would you want to hurt them more by separating them. It just rips my heart out to even read this question so how could you even THINK or ASK that question. We are all humans and do have brains so we can think; please think and act wisely. If you were being separated from your children (BABIES) how would you feel and how would your babies feel? Think about that when making your decission. My three birds are like my children and I do call them my babies. I only wish that I was near to you but unfortunately I'm in Toronto, Canada. I would've bought them from you in an instant and they'd then have a comfortable home with freedom to fly about in my home. They'll get all my love and be very happy together with my other three babies. You may think that I'm being very hard on you but it is hurting me so much that it's really my heart is speaking. I do wish that you'll get someone to take these two lovely babies and give them the love that they need and deserve. Take care and God bless.

Well how much would you want for both of them (in US dollar)? I have had greys before and if it would be in my budget I would take both so they do not have to be apart.

Editor's note: I posted this just so I could leave this message. I do NOT allow people to buy and sell birds on my site. I do NOT share personal contact information either. I have a breeders list page for actual breeders only. This blog is for parrot questions and I don't want it to become a place for scammers to get money.

Separating birds
by: Tracie

Yes, it will be difficult for them to leave the home they know AND be separated from each other. Going from being able to communicate with each other to only having a human that doesn't speak their language, sleep with them etc. will be difficult.

Even though all of the above is true, it doesn't mean that the bird will not adjust to a new loving home. Just make sure that whoever purchases the birds understands how long they live and are ready to provide avian vet care, high quality pellet diet and spend a LOT of time with them.
