    Shawna there is a classified section right here on Birdmart.
    Look at the top of the page and click on Classifieds.
    You can also go to Up at Six and register and post there. That
    is a very active board for buying and selling.
    Keep in mind that you need to say if you are willing to ship the
    bird or not and by the sounds of it, I would say you're not
    familiar with the process.
    State that it is a local adoption and name your location.
    Also a local newspaper or vets office would be a good idea, too.
