I(Rusty's mommy) was looking in a "buy and sell" and saw 2 female birds. I called the owners and they said that the birds were already gone but they had 2 more birds-a male and female. We went to their house but right before we got there, one bird had flown away while they were cleaning the cage. The bird that was still there was the male-they said his name was Rusty. Later that month I got Rusty a new friend. He loves her exept that she always copies him. I think it's funny!.

She cares about me lots and she bought me a friend which costed $30. She bought it with her own money!

  Gravel & Parrots
I worked in a large aviary for 4 years. When a bird died unexpectedly it was examined by a vet. Many times it was found with gravel impacted in its gut even tough we never used it. When several baby budgies died we had them examined and they were found with gravel impacted in their guts, they had gotten it from their parents. (Some of the breeder birds had previous owners who fed gravel.)

Parrots do not need gravel; wild parrots might need clay, depending on their diet. Poultry need a little grit in their gizzard to grind up tough food.

  Hi there!
Little Cosmo is also a budgie. They are great little birds.

I hope you also feed fresh food and pellets. Gravel is not necessary and can get stuck in the gut and make parrots very sick.

Come visit me, Mongo, Vern & Chester.
