Petbarn: Please re-home Billy ASAP

Billy the Corella currently lives at the Petbarn Moorebank store in NSW, Australia, and has been kept there for many years in conditions that do not meet his needs.

Recently, it has been brought to our attention by some of the store's customers, that Billy's physical and emotional condition has been on the decline.

Supporters of Billy are greatly concerned for him and desire to see him rehomed with a compassionate and knowledgeable caretaker as soon as possible, so that he can finally have the life that he deserves.

We believe his needs include (but are not limited to) the following;

At all times:

-Access to a large variety of fresh, suitable, stimulating foods, in particular those that most closely resemble his natural diet, such as sprouts, grasses, seeds, nuts, fruits and vegies.

-A safe and large outdoor aviary which allows for free-flight and plenty of exercise

-To be kept in the company of other Corellas or at the very least, other parrots

-To have a care-giver who has his best interests at heart and is prepared to take him to an avian vet when need be

-Access to rain and a dish of shallow water allowing him the ability to bathe when he desires to

-Access to unfiltered sunshine and the ability to choose sunny areas or shady/covered areas

-Mental and emotional stimulation - proper natural toys such as wild branches and foliage, the ability to forage and fossick for his food on the ground as he would in the wild

We refer to this website for further and more detailed info: http://www.avianweb.com/keepyourpetbirdhappy.html

We believe that Billy is currently both physically unwell and mentally/emotionally depressed, and so far Petbarn has shown little interest in meeting his needs.

We also believe that Petbarn is setting an undesirable example of how birds should be cared for.

We want to see Petbarn finally living up to their claim that they are "passionate about providing the best pet supplies, pet products, pet care, advice and services for pets at our pet stores"
