no offense but why are you so sure that the bird will be given
up?? many shelter birds have problems that are beyond most
owners......so to recommend that they try one of these is almost
setting them up for failure. I do agree that a larger bird
needs more thorough research and experience. But many people
are smart, willing, and able to do this. They'll do fine.
