Is this allowed to be asked on HUKD?

Hello,

I didn't want to add to the For Sale/Trade page as I'm not sure where to ask.
Are we allowed to advertise pets/accs on this site? If not am I allowed to ask if anyone knows of anywhere I can advertise my umbrella cockatoo and cage for sale that isn't full of scammers? :thinking: :?

wether u get any time wasters or scammers is another thing but I guess because of the nature of what your selling you be taking cash in hand.
Not sure if allowed on here,can't comment as I've never seen any pets for sale on here.

Thanks for that Mum2 I scanned the rules but couldn't find anything about it. I might try friday-ad as gumtree is full of scammers at the minute.

If it's not illegal then it should be ok. Someone gave away some pets here once if I remember right.

Just a thought but.....

is it not better to give/sell the pet to someone you know and trust and have known for a while.

No offence to ANYONE on here - but you could.... ok I'm not gonna type what I'm thinking - I'm gonna leave it there :giggle:

Thats just my opinion - don't think its right you sell it on here personally.

All of the friends I have are in a similar situation to me - ie have small children/babies. Despite being perfectly happy with my older children the bird isn't happy now we have a baby in the house so one of them has to go and given that you aren't allowed to sell children in britain....:giggle:

I still don't think its right Rosenauk - but thats my opinion....

where are you based roseanuk?

Could you not move the bird to another room? I hate to get rid of my pet.

I'm in Corby.

We've moved her cage so she isn't in the front room but she's really social and likes to be out all the time which is why she doesn't like it now we have the baby because we can't have her constantly out anymore.

Becksdawe - I understand you have your own opinion. Lets hope your circumstances never change and that you have friends/family you've known for ages and trust who will always be prepared to provide the exact environment/care required for your pet:-(
Birds aren't like cats & dogs they are loads more sensitive. I would rather she stayed with someone we know but her needs are specific and I'm of the opinion she'd be better with someone who understands that than someone prepared to offer a home with no idea of what they are taking on.:thumbsup:

I'm not gonna say what I feel here - for fear of upsetting you or offending anyone on here - that is not my intention.

Have you tried looking in the Yellow Pages (or along those lines - I'm sure the links above will become valuable), for people who actually own birds - because it seems like its a valued pet and surely you would rather it go to someone who has a clue about them than someone off here who may not.
