I would like to find out what went into setting up the parrot hotel, would that be a viable business here? Having a quaker, I am happy to hear that New Jersey is considering protectiive legislation. I do not know what drives people to steal. Haing a pet without training and information is dangerous to the pet. I pray both stolen birds are returned to where they belong.
