I went to get the water and food dishes out of the cage, and Dipsy got out, the doors were opened and she just flew off and kept flying.

Mum reckons if she hears the other birds then she might come back. I'm really snappy now, it's not anyone's fault but mine. :( She was my first bird now she's gone and probably going to get killed by other birds and it's my fault for putting my hands in the cage, I had the door opened a little bit and she managed to fit through it.

Oh no, i'm really sorry to hear that Dipsy got out. :( I know how heart breaking it is to have a bird fly off. Have you put a spare cage outside with millet on/in it to hopefully lure her back if she's in the area? Another good idea is to make fliers to put up in the area and also to put in peoples letter boxes. A lot of people would assume that no one would bother to look for a lost bird and just keep it themselves.

I am so sorry to hear that Dipsy got out, maybe if you put one of the other birds cages outside with her favourite tiel in, she might hear them and come back. Don't give up hope! :) Keep us updated and the Best of Luck!!

Sending lots and lots of good thoughts that she comes back. Make sure to contact all the local newspapers/tv & radio stations to get the word out. Also, put fliers up at pet stores, and vet offices, and the rescue shelters. Don't forget about knocking on your neighbours doors.

Here are some websites where you can post for lost birds:

I truly hope you get her back.

There's a cage outside with water, food, millet and it's been left open all night and still is now. The other 'tiels are outside and being really noisy, but I haven't seen her.

I have signed up to heaps of sites put ads up about her and explained, as well as putting up posters letting my neighbors know and ask them to keep an eye out and I went looking again today for a couple of hours but no luck.. I rang animal shelters, RSPCA, vets, but nothing as of yet. I guess I gotta keep my fingers crossed someone might find her.

I feel bad because I don't even wanna look at the cage she was in nor go near it which means, poor Mali & Tilly aren't getting the attention from me, but they are getting it from my mum, I can't handle being near them at the moment.

Edit: I forgot about newspapers and the radio, I'll have to do that, thank you.

I knew a gal who lost her 'tiel and she papered the area with flyers. It took 4 months but she finally got her back when the lady who had found her stepped on one of her flyers in the ladies room and it stuck to her shoe. The Big Guy works in mysterious ways! Her bird had only gone two blocks.

With some luck I hope someone does find her and give me a ring I put 4 different numbers down that I can be contacted on so I just gotta wait now. I've done all I can. :(

I was giving Theo cuddles today and then Charlie flew over and he's a spitting image of Dipsy, so is Twix, they remind me so much of her which doesn't make it very easy.
