The Kent County SPCA is looking for homes for some of the 30 parrots that were seized from a Georgetown residence.
 
Spokeswoman Elizabeth Butts says the birds were seized over the weekend from an owner who could no longer take care of them.

  Butts says the large birds include Macaws, African Greys and Amazons. She says they were found living in cages too small for them.
 
Five birds are ready for adoption. Butts warned, however, that large parrots can live for 80 years, so caring for one is a long-term commitment.
 
The SPCA is also seeking donations for specialty feed and toys for the birds.
