Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I am so sorry to hear about your situation.In this case, it is very tricky since most shelters won't handle our avian pets. Still, it would be best to ring all the no-kill ones just in case they can rehome your wee ones. You may wish to check with the Australian Animal Rescue ( or RSPCA ( to start.Otherwise, I would strongly suggest ringing your local wildlife rehabilitators. They may have the facilities to take them in (since often they take wild water fowl) or the connections to where they could be safely rehomed. To find a rehabilitator in your area, your vet can help or you can check:Wildlife International (,Wildlife Victoria ( for National Parks and Wildlife ( (,or Wildlife Sanctuaries ( Please take care and best wishes with these wee ones,Dr. B. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. **Please rate my service afterwards, as this is the only way I am credited for helping you today. Thank you! : )
