I have got a parrot of indian origin. the parrot was found in jungle of Jharkhand lying helpless with no fur on his body and dropped from his nest. The wick of parrot was yellow and it so weak that it was unable to move. Out of compassion i brought it home in 2007 and thereafter with due care brought it out as young and healthy one. Now i wish to donate it to your bird collection to give it fellow companions in a controlled larger environment. could you allow me to donate my lovely parrot to your zoo? If yes, kindly inform me through return mail.
