I was asked by a friend, who was reading my PS mag, what the difference was between a re-homed parrot and one for sale. He showed me the adverts in the mag for re-homing and each had a price attached. I checked previous mags and found the same thing. Surely every parrot for sale is (hopefully) being rehomed therefore it should come under one heading. Being seperated it suggests that a re-homed bird is just that, not one for sale.
Also, while on the subject of adverts, can I suggest that all sale adds are charged and all wanted adds are free, exchanges can be classed as sales etc.
I am aware of what the initial idea was behind the free adds etc but there are now over 6000 members and the price of birds has risen dramatically therefore a mere £1 per line is not excessive. Also can the general area of sale be added to all adverts (eg Yorkshire/Wales/Scotland) as this would prevent a great deal of frustration on behalf of both the seller and possible buyer. I must admit in the past I have rung someone only to find they were indeed from Scotland (a little too far to travel for me in the south of england especially at the rising cost of petrol/transport) resulting in the advertiser no doubt calling me a time waster etc.
