Hi Pepper
Here's my story, it's sad but TRUE.... Some careless human managed to allow a bird to escape from thier home and fortunately it found it's way here. A neighbor found it in the woods while walking her dog. She told pops and mom, that there is no way she could, or would keep it, and asked if they would take the bird.

Not being sure what kind it was, they grabbed a carrier and went over to her house to see it. The lady had it in a dog carrier sitting outside, which I guess is ok.

You could have knocked pops over with a feather, when he saw the bird. It looked to be in very good condition, and other tha a few feathers out of place, was BIRDaful. It was extremely friendly, and jumped right on to mom's finger, and cuddled with her, and then was palced in the carrier to come to our house.

Yesterday, pop's and mom took the bird to the Avian Vet for a complete check-up. Pops said it cost him an arm and a leg, and that he spent our bird show toy money. BUT, I know better, cause I know where he hides the ca$h. Hee hee.

After talking with the vet for a few minutes, it was time for the exam. Everything cheked out real good, with the exception of one little thing. The Vet said that the bird was about 30 grams under weight, and that his guess was that it is about a year or two old at most. He also said that he is 90% sure that it is a FEMALE.... Not that it matters to us.

The word is out, and maybe the person that lost the bird will contact us. They will have to PROVE it belongs to them, and pay for the cost of the Vet before we would give it back. IF nobody calims it, I guess we'll have another member of the Z Flock.

Oh you're asking, 'what kind of bird is it?'. Well it is a CONGO AFRICAN GREY. Pops said we should call it BUSH WACKER cause it was found it the bushes. But until we know for sure, that we're going to keep it, no name has been picked. And no page for it, either, at least not for now. Pictures will be posted on my page later today.
