New to the forum but looking for some reassurance to the experienced birdie owners on this website. I just purchased a bird from _____________. They are located in ___________, just 5hours from my location. I paid $150 for shipping, but then when questioned the breeder about when the bird would be getting on a plane and arriving, he was extremely vague and telling me Wednesday or Thursday (Nov4 or 5). Though I needed a more solid answer. I finally called him and was able to get the response that they use a service who will pick up my bird Tuesday evening from their house, take to the airport, and then that service books the flight. I then questioned him if by Tuesday night he'd know what flight the bird would be on and when he'd arrive at my local airport (10mins away from my home). He said yes. So Tuesday evening comes, I inquire if my parrotlet left their home, he said yes. I then asked if soon he'd know any flight details. Response was No, I'll call when he reaches your town and is out for delivery. So that brings us to today, Wednesday. I've been anxiously awaiting this little guy all day, knowing he's supposedly been at the airport since last night. HE HAS NOT SHOWN UP ALL DAY! I emailed the breeder to inquire any sort of update and he was very short and said no update yet. Now, I'm really concerned and wanting to know what company who handles live animal shipping wouldn't provide some type of tracking?? I'm not even sure if my little guy will show up today since it's almost 5pm. So does he just sit somewhere with no care?? Does this sound unusual? Has anyone else purchased their birdie from ________________ and had a good experience? Just very stressed and worried about my bird. Looking for reassurance since the breeder clearly isn't giving it. Feeling like I've made a mistake.
