She was a Petco bird, but she couldn't be sold due to a bad leg. Since my friend (a Petco employee) knew I already had a special needs bird, she thought I would make a good home for Dandelion. Awards

  Hi Dandelion!
This is Kiwi. I really think you are very special and a cute Birdie. I even believe your name is special too. I love you and I would like us to be friends. you can do anything you want to do. being a special needs birdie just means you will have to keep your thinking cap on and make the most out of everyday. that is what being a special birdie is about and God allowed you to be a special needs birdie so you can bring other special needs birdies and even their human companions together for a teaching time to show what can be done through faith and God's mercy. come and visit me and Tuffy and our sister Sunny when you're not so busy teaching. here's a vote for the most poplar friend. I'll be by again soon! See Ya!

Come visit me, Tuffy (hatchday 7- 4-2002 passed away 4- 12-2006), Sunny, Master Bluebell & Kiwi.

Sassy & Robbie have a flock member with special needs. Skippy is a one legged tiel. Skippy has learned to get along quite well and with special perches, baskets and shelves to sit on, I am expecting a long life for her. Here is a vote for your special little one.

Come visit me, Skippy *06-05-06*, George *10-2-01*, Baby *6-26-07* & Sassy *4-4-01*.
