He was yet another rescue bird- his person had no idea how "messy and loud" birds could be. He was also kept in a tiny cage with dowel perches and only a mirror for company..

Hi! My name is Sky *RIP*

I am from Ann Arbor, MI.

Skybird

11 years old   M



Any dried fruit and fresh greens- yum!

It's hard to tell which he prefers- rope perch or branches, I know that he does NOT like cement, though!

Windy (his cage-mate)somet- imes bites his feet, she can be a bit of a bully

The great care she gives me: a huge cage with branches and lots of toys, a variety of food, and good light.

Hanging upside-down and speaking english (very softly) to Wind.

I gotta fly!.

  Did you know that Republicans are zombies? Apperently the reason that Republicans don't want to enforce helmet laws is so that they can steal organs from the accident victims. And interstate highways are evil. The government could use them to transport missles, and that is so wrong. Gotta love my government class... I wouldn't belive that a teacher actually said that if I hadn't heard it myself. Your classes sound cool! Except for the annoying sculpture bit. Well, I can't write long, just wanted to say hi, and see how you are doing. I have ten babies, and am going nuts! 4 are Reep x Chrissy, 3 are Whinny x Merlin, and 3 are Elly x Caspy. If you know anyone that wants one... =)

  I'm so sorry about Skybird! That's horrible! He was such a sweet bird too. How are your other birds doing? How is school going? School is going pretty good for me. My photo teacher is completely nuts- she spends class ranting about how evil guys are, and how Bush is a Nazi (does she even know what a Nazi is?) and that she hates guys, she hats Islamic people, she hates soldiers, she hates the army, and that we should all love everyone. Crazy crazy. She is one of those people that thinks that the only way people can get along is to agree on everything, and if someone disagrees with you, then they either don't like you or are mad at you. Kinda frustrating. My Government Prof is a communist. Big surprise. My brother and I have that class together, so we sped the whole time writing sarcastic notes to each other. Most entertaining. Apperantly the interstate highway are evil, because they were built to move troops around when America thought that the USSR was going to invade us. He thinks that they should have been welcomed here to take over us and get rid of our evil capitalism. So weird. My Classical Civilizations prof is really good. He looks like one of those Oxford dons- vest, watch chain in his pocket, leather elbow patches on his jacket. I like him. Chinese is very Chinesy. How are all your classes going? What's new?

  Sorry it's been SO long! I have been going crazy this month, between art shows, horse shows, making that stupid school transfer my credits, teaching, and so on. You should put up some of your assignments! That dual majoring sounds like a good idea. I will look at your pictures on your myspace page as soon as my computer get fixed... It's working, but veeerrryyyy slllooowwwlllyyy... so I'm not even going to try looking at pictures. =) My birds have eggs! Whinny and Merling, Caspy and Elly May, and Reep and Caspy again. Good thing Reep and Elly May get along. Eggs should start hatching next week. Your birds breeding yet? What classes do you have this fall? I would love to get together! When do you want to?

  That sounds like fun! Where (at the show) do you want to meet? I can't write long because I am in between work and more work, but I am definately coming. I have the appointment made with my vet to do tests on the bird I get and everything. Could you e-mail me, and then we can exchange cell numbers and everything? My e-mail is Heidi@ml1.net. Well, now I get to go back to work... I HATE teaching camp....

  Your life sounds crazy! Don't kill yourself doing too much. That person who wants you to charge less is insane. You should be charging way more than you are as it is. Some people... I'm glad your teacher is being nicer. Are you ok from your asma? How did the project go? What was it? I hope Windy and Sky do have babies. Mine are getting nesty too. I would be at the show around 11:00 or so. What are you hoping to get? Hopefully I will find a suitable birdy. I just have to figure out where to quarentine him while I wait for the test results to come back. (I plan on doing teats for Chlamydia, PBFD, Pacheo's and PDD.) Have you ever done those before? I don't usually unless I don't know the person I'm buying from. It's so funny- I just got in trouble at work today for teaching kids how to juggle. People are so weird.

  Cool! I'm coming! When is it? (The time.) Thanks for telling me! Are you going? How is school going? Have you started pet sitting for any of those people yet? How is it going with that crazy teacher? I am enjoying having no school.... =) It's so funny- I have friends who own a bookstore, and they are having a Harry Potter party on Friday, so my brother and I, along with some friends, are having a fake protest outside the store. We are making anti Harry Potter signs using crayons and spaggetti sauce. And we are going to spell everything wrong. We've got one sign that says "Harry Potter is of the Deval," using a yellow highlighter for flames. He he he. I wonder if anyone will join us, thinking we are serious. Have you done any new paintings? (How is that for a completely random change of topic?) How are all your birds? And your Lucy?

  Yeah it's really odd. Crazy crazy people. They actually expected me to come back! No, there's nothing to be done about Angel. She's on meloxacam, and that's the best we can do for now. I got some bloodwork done on her, so we will see what else turns up. My vet thinks that she might have some sort of urinary tract thing too. Poor Angy! He says that Chrissy is also not doing too well- he has a heart abnormality. Nothing can be done because he is so small. He ways 22g! His siblings all way in about 35g. Reep is 57g! They give glucosamine to cats? I thought that that was just a horse medication. What are that lady's andalusians like? That is so cool... That budgie sounds pretty! We will see... I want to get a either a violet Spangaline, a Sky blue Yellowface Spangaline, a blue series double factor spangle or some combo of all that (possibly also a pied?) but a violet Opaline is pretty close... No one in my area breeds English, it's so odd. The only other person who breeds English is using my babies, so I may go to that store. What else is new with you? How are your classes going? Will that lady let you ride her horses?

  How is life? What's new with you? I've been having fun getting covered in horse snot. I was horse-sitting foe a friend, and the gelding, Giddy, choked on his grain! (He chokes often enough, but never on grain before.) And when a horse chokes, snot just pours out their nose. Yuck. Apparently this wasn't as bad as it normally is. Poor Giddy. I was sure he was going to die. The vet came out a tubed him, and he was ok after that, but it was pretty scary for me. And icky. I held his head the whole time. And of course he learned nothing from the incident- when we were sure he was ok, we turned him out, and he went looking for grain in Style's stall. Crazy pony. How are your classes going? Are you still taking them over the summer?

  Your cat sounds hilarious. I used to have a budgie like that- Emmy. She was constantly sick (she was an elderly rescue bird) and so demanded constant special treatment. She had to have her lemonade every morning when she woke up, she had to be carried to wherever I was so she could sit with me and eat my breakfast, and then carried back to the gym... At lunch she would fly to the table and sit on top of my sandwich or on my fork and bite me on the nose if she thought I was eating more than my fair share. (She was starved before I got her so she was just a little obsessed with food.) Very silly bird. She was so tame though- I could lay her on her back, pick up and extend her wings, pet her beak- all sorts of stuff. I mean, it's not unusual for a a hand-fed bird- all my babies turn out like that- but for a parent raised budgie it is. Ok, so that's the random bird story of the day... I just miss her. I'm sorry you missed your honors thing. What were you sick with? Are you better? Yes the Bourkes are still there, still $150. Want one? I feel bad for them. Still in that cage. It's so sad- someone left a Cherry head there! And now he's plucking. I want to take him home with me but Kiwi would kill him. Or me. That's so cool that you get to go to Ireland! Where are you going? I'm so jealous... =) I'm glad you sold that stuff! Paying bills is always good. The guat skin thing with the drums sounds gross. You have fun with that... Ew. Sounds cool though. You do everything in that class! I've had a lot of wild birds too. Mostly doves. I throw all the used seed (from when I dump my bird dishes out) onto the lawn and the doves love it. Do you do that with yours? My big project has been officially starting an art business. I've registered the business,got an account, and now I just need the sales tax thing, paypal, and an actual website. Hopefully I will actually sell stuff... Did you ever think of doing that?

  Is your cat doing ok? Poor kitty... Good thing your mom paid! What was the WCC thing like? I have been going nuts with work. This agent thought that a tea company might want to buy one of my paintings, so I got it all formatted and sent it in an e-mail. Then they wanted two more. Then they wanted more thumbnails. Then they wanted me to mail a copy to them. Crazy crazy past two weeks. Hopefully they will buy it... I have finally got almost everything straightened out with Wayne State, which is a big relief. What else have you been up to? Do you think you will actually get more birds? The female bourkes are still at my vet's store...

  What is a corkscrew with fox bristles? (aside from being a brush, obviously.) How do you make your own brushes? Are you watching the Kentucky Derby today? I love watching it. I like the standardbred races more, though. What about you? I just got yelled at some more for leaving CCS. By the teachers there. And another one sent me an e-mail asking me not to leave! That one actually was really heartbreaking. Oh well...

  Of course you didn't offend me! Why would you? I am pretty much impossible to offend. Seriously. Say whatever you want, it won't bother me a bit. (I actually get in trouble all the time because I assume that others are the same and get them all mad at me and call me offensive.) And I'm not one of those people that says that and then gets al mad when you do. One of my best friends is a Druid Priestess, another is a Hindu Something or Other, one is a self-proclaimed practitioner of "dark spells," and the list goes on. If the stuff they enjoy ranting about has not offended me yet, nothing that you can say is going to. It really is fine. I actually wrote back to you, but apparently it didn't show up on your page. Sorry. I've been going crazy with transfering, doing finals, and helping a friend with a carriage driving clinic, so I have had no time to do anything. Or sleep, for that matter. Crazy crazy carzy. But now I am done with school and I am FREE!!! That's great that you get to take another ceramics class. I know what you mean about adding more birds, especially during college. Just one more though... I don't get the whole women converting to Islam thing either. Have you ever read the Koran? I don't think that how someone feels about Mary reflects how they feel about women. Mary was added to Catholicism in order to manipulate people, not represent motherhood. I have never understood why people want a female representative in religions. A person is a person. Why does it matter? (Also I think that praying to dead people is creepy. But saying that in 80% catholic Macomb County is not wise, as I have discovered the hard way.) What do you think? What else is new with you? That bird you were describing sounds really pretty. You should get him!

  Your crow looks like a black seagull? Just think of some really fancy title for it. "This Black Seagull represents the trials of humanity as we struggle up that long, long road to..." The cat vase sounds cool. No, I'm not slacking off. I care a lot less, but I still want a high GPA just because. I wonder what your Drawing Today class will be? Hmmm... You have to take a class on minorities? That will be interesting. And you get to take astronomy?! I'm jealous. That Tanith Lee book was good. Have you ever read the "Year's Best SciFi" series? It's a whole bunch of short stories. I really like them. There is a fantasy version too, but it's not as good. Yeah, I think some of the popular religious stuff today is mysogynistic. Especially Islam. I don't understand the whole thing myself. Everyone HAS to love Islam and say it's so wonderful, or else they are basically tarred and feathered. I know many femminists who are big Islam fans. Don't get it at all. I don't know if down-playing Mary is anti-women. I was reading the other day, and I guess that the whole Mary thing was added to Christianity, and the reason that she gets downplayed by protestants is that she isn't part of the original religion, not because they dislike women. What do you think? I think the problem with house wives is often a social thing, not religious. Personally, I would never want to be a house wife or mother, but I don't think that there is anything wrong with it or that it is demeaning. I do think that it's really awful when girls are raised to think that the whole acme of their existence is to get married and have kids. I used to know some girls (when I was in high school, and they were in middle school) who spent all their time making things for their weddings and buying things for their future kids. They didn't even do normal high school- they just learned to cook and stuff. They thought I was awful that I was going to college and wanted a career. I mean, there is nothing wrong with a girl deciding that she wants to get married and have kids, but to have their parents press it into their heads like that is something else. I think they were in a cult of some form. I'm not so sure about balancing a career and kids, just because I have so many students who are basically raising themselves because their moms work. I don't think there is anything wrong with having both, but the kids need to come first. I just want to smack some of the moms and tell them that they chose to have the kids, so they had better start taking care of them and stop being selfish. (I don't mean the ones that have to work to pay for food- it's the ones who work so that they can have an extra large house or a cool TV) You would like to be a house wife? That's cool. I take it there is a lack of eligible guys by you? I think that most guys are just idiots. I have only met one that I would even consider going out with, and he appears to be frightened of me. I don't know

  I am now a CCS drop out! Yay! No more nasty paintings, evil teachers, stupid students! I am transfering to Wayne. Hopefully I haven't just sunk my art career. That shelf you got sounds so cool! I hope you get your classes figured out. What are you thinking of taking? I have all of mine figured out. I get Digital photo, art history, Pol Sci, and Manderin. I am taking classes with my brother, which will be fun. Everyone always thinks we are twins, so we are just going to go with it and refer to each other as "my twin." What kind of toad was it? They are so cute. Yes, I take books everywhere with me. I try to buy some small ones to keep in my purse. And I have two in my backpack, three in my porfolio, and so on... Oh yeah, THAt James Bylock.... I've never read the Handmaid's Tale. I have read lots of Tanith Lee. I like Biting the Sun. You really think our culture is mysogenic? I always thaught it was the extreeme opposite, myself. People are always talking about women's rights and feminism. If they talked about guy's rights or something like that they'd be shot down prettty fast. Why do you think it's mysogynic?

  Whinny put her legs through the bars on purpose. I saw her do it. Don't ask me WHY, but there you go. It was so funny- Reeps was pecking her toes, and all Whinny could do was kick furiously... Elegants are so pretty! I think, any way. Why wouldn't people want one? Is he in the cage all by himself!? The Bourkes at my vet's are $150, but I could get them to give them to you for less, I'm sure. That's great that you can sell stuff on your uncle's website. I hope you sell lots! I'm the same with reading. My friends think I'm nuts because I'd rather read than watch TV, but I don't care. I do like Firefly, though. And outer limits. And Stargate. I like the fact that my brother and I watch them together more than the actual shows. But they were all canceled... Have you ever seen them? Who is James Baylock? (British mystery, right?.) What are his books like? I just got a whole bunch of Year's Best Scifi books from the 70's and 80's. I like them. And a Jules Vern Book about the moon. I love having friends who own a bookstore. I found a singularly depressing book, called The Sheep Look Up. Have you read it? It you haven't, don't. Have you read To Gather the Wolves? It sounds like something that actually might happen. It's about how the U.S. got into so much foriegn debt that the only way to solve it was was to turn into a totalitarian state. What was interesting is that usualy that type of book is written by far, far left wing people hating on the conservatives, and this book is written by a conservative and portrays both sides as sharing the blame. The weather is wonderful- if only I could stop doing homework long enough to go riding... I hope you sort out your dentist thing. I hate it when that happens- all set to get something, and then here comes a great big bill. Only for me it's usually either a car bill or a vet bill for Angel or Whinny.

  What kind of Grass parakeet? Poor little guy. Grass parakeets are so cool- I really want to get one, but I already have eight birds... I hate it when they sit at pet stores so long. I don't like pet stores period, actually. (Most of them.) The Bourkes are still at my vet's store. I feel sorry for them, but it's the same as with you- I don't have that much money. So expensive. That stuff you are making sounds really nice. Especially the lamp. Where will you sell the stuff? I like the Hobo sign one. Are the hobo signs real? I was at my friend's bookstore the other day, and they got this book from the library (apparently libraries donate books to book stores) with a bunch of them in it, and we couldn't decide if it was a spoof or not. Have Sky and Wind made any more progress with the nest box? Mine are looking to breed again, but I am thrawrting them. Thankfully. Silly, silly Whinny got herself in yet another predicament. I have two great big budgie cages stacked against the wall, with the covers pulled back during the day. Whinny decided to climb around between the cage and the wall. Then she got underneath the cover, and was between the the cage, the cover, and the wall. Being a thoughtful, logical bird, she stuck both feet between the bars, slid to the bottom, and got completely stuck. I heard her, and got her out, and she now has unique set of bruises. Her sons seem somewhat better than that, but Tansy is worse. She has her fathers curiosity and her mother's complete lack of common sense. I predict many vet bills. Have you birds gotten into any trouble lately, or has it all been dog and cat troubles?

  Sounds like you've been having adventures! That dog is gross. Very good thing the furnace was off! The stuff you made sounds really nice. Do you do lots of sculpting (before the class)? I'm so bad at it... The babies re going home soon. I'm not sure if I should be happy about it or sad. I will miss them. No, I can't get my horse back. The girl that I gave him to turned around and sold him to make some quick money. I don't know where he is now. The lovebird, Pip, I can get back once I graduate. It was so funny- one of my teachers came in high! It was the evil one. So funny. She was much nicer than usual... What else will you be making in your classes? Have you been reading any new books?

  The babies are doing very good. They are all flying arund the house like little loonies. Now I just have to get them weaned... They are so sweet. I think I will have to let Whinny breed again- I love her babies' personalities. Tansy is the cuddliest budgie ever. How are your guys? I'm sorry you missed your male! He sounded so pretty. Are you feeling better? How goes the dog sitting? The pitcher and lamp bases sound really cool! I hope you find a way to make the other one pay off. And congrats on the Dean's List! My classes are going not so well. I am seriously considering dropping out. My school sucks. That's all I can say. My teachers are all either insane, incompitent, or both. I work my butt off for this school. I have no life. I have no friends. I do nothing but homework. I gave my lovebird away. And my andalusian horse!! And for all that I get objects flung at my head and lectures on why I am a failure as a human being. It's horrible. I've been just trying to laugh it all off and take it in stride, but it's a little too expensive to do that. I have this business practices class, and instead of learning about business, she is having use write out our goals for the rest of our lives. First off, I could walk out the door tomorrow and get hit by a bus. Or a long lost relative could die and leave me millions of dollars. We can't know what will happen tomorrow, let alone in 50 years. This is silly. But I did the assignment anyway, and mentioned none of that. We were supposed to plan out just how famouse we would be, and how rich, and what cars we would own, how amazing we would be as artists, et cetera. I wrote that I don't want to be famouse, or rich, or any of that. That sort of thing means nothing me. I don't care if I become amazing or not. If I do, great. If not, that's fine- there is more to my life than art. So I got read the riot act and told that I am a failure as a human being, I will never amount to anything, I suck, and I should just leave now. Arg! Ok, sorry, lots of complaining. I'm just really annoyed- this bus prac class is typical of classes at my school. I want to quit. I don't know if I will or not, but I want to. I really do. Erg. Dilemmas, dilemmas. Are you going back to school in the fall? Your book sounds really good. I like the Victoian era as well- sounds much preferable. So how is life for you? What's new? Watching any more dogs? Taking any more classes?

  Hope you had fun in Colorado. My cousins love to go there to ski. I know, there is always that, "wow you are really good with birds, what do you have? oh, just a budgie, that is not a bird, ect.."like once they find out you do not have a macaw, you do not know anything. I have worked with bigger birds and have tamed my neighbors famously mean African Grey, but just because I do not "own" a larger bird, I am not as immersed in aviculture. I know, I am always thinking of the budgie holding the world record for the most words whenever they say in BIRDTALK about how little birds do not do alot. All the editor has is two cockateils, though. Oh, I do not have any birds besides hookbills, but I think they make just a good of pets. I am best friends with my neighbors chickens!(This coming from the girl who taught who minnows tricks! but you know) I saw a thing on, um, maybe it was Good Morning America, they were talking about organic food. I think it must have been a biased report, because never did they mention that organic foods contain more nutrients, are better for you, better for the earth, ect. They just shoved them done because "they are fresh, like everyone assumes". What is with that. You do not even want to know what they said about buying organic or free-range meat. I mean, the point was it is better for you, but also they have to treat the animals so much better. I just try to raise awarness.

  You are going all the way back to dogsit? Wow. You are a very devoted sister! Those books you got sound cool. What other books did you get? I've never read the Making History book, but it sounds really good. I just bought a Ray Bradbury book today- Dandilion Wine. I haven't read it in years, and I loaned my copy out and never got it back. I hope you can get that bird- he sounds so pretty. Jess is a violet. Midge (I suppose I should call him Sweety Pie) is a sky blue. Jess is so outgoing, and Midge is so reclusive- they will be an interesting pair. Jess had fun today running around the couch. And leaping of the couch. I don't know what I will do when he learns to fly... He wanted to spay his budgies? Ok then... His aviary sounds really nice. I want on like that... How is everything else going? How are your classes? And the pet sitting? What else did you do in Colorado?

  I love the new pictures! Very cute. I know what you mean about your nephew's books. I also highly doubt that they lead to Satan worship, but they still aren't good. Escpecially for a kid. I love the Ray Bradbury book the "Silver Locusts" and "The Day it Rained Forever." Piers Anthony books are good too. I like his take on dragons. I used to be really into the Anne Mcaffery books. I think I've read most of them, but I don't remember which one Dragon Singer is. I liked "The Master Harper of Pern" the best. I like the whole history thing- how they progressed from computers to harpers, and then found a computer. I like Ringworld, up to a point- I think he could have done without a few scenes... But the idea is so cool. Have you ever read Fitzpatrick's War? I think it would be classified as Steampunk. It's about the future after civilization collapses and the Victorian times happen again. It's really good. I just got a Charles deLint book- the title has something to do with Jack. I really like it. i read Borribles a really long time ago (if it's the same book) and I liked it. Have you ever read anything by Connie Willis? She's really good. She has this series about a world in which there is time travel, and it's run by college committees. Really funny. And accurate about colleges. She wrote a short story about a guy who keeps getting parking tickets and the ay after I rwad it, the same thing started happening to me. (but to a different degree, obviously.) I got a parking ticket at school for not having a sticker, and they stuck it over my sticker. And then I got a ticket at home for parking in my friend next door's driveway. Crazy people. =) She writes other stuff too. Have you read Earth Abides? Or A Canticle for Liebowitz or Alas Babylon? They are all about life after a nuclear war, but they were written in the fifties, so they are all upbeat and happy. Mostly. that bird you saw sounds so pretty- you should get him! Have fun in Colorado!

  Hello Sky!
Ava is letting me type today, I am so excited! How are you? Do you love getting hypper? I live for getting hyper. What do you like to do? I love to fly, to annoy Ava and then act all sweet an quiet till she forgives me, and I like to make Frank play with me. My owner tries to discourage me from playing with him though, I do not know why. It is not like he could actually catch me. What do you like to do? I have to go now!

  Hello! Thanks for being understanding! I'm kinda going crazy right now. I don't normally pull babies this young (the youngest was 7 days old when I pulled her.) Whinny just wasn't feeding them. I pulled the first two to see if she would feed the youngest, and they were SOOO skinny. She then completely abandoned the youngest. So I pulled her too. I really didn't think Midge was going to make it- she was too weak to even eat. It's amazing how fast they can crash like that- she went from kinda skinny, when I left in the morning to go to school, to nearly dead when I got home that evening. So I've been feeding every hour for the first part of this week. On thursday I cut back to every two hours. No more babies for Whinny. That's all I can say. That's sad that all the used book places are gone by you! Squirreled Away is the best store ever. If you ever buy anything, tell them I sent you... I LOVE Ray Bradbury, and Piers Anthony. I've heard of the others, and I know I've read some of their books, but I don't remember which books those were. What are some of them called? Ok, this is a dumb question, but what is steampunk? And urban surrealism? Have you ever read any Larry Niven? Or Andre Norton? Or Fredrick Pohl? I like all the older books- many of the new ones seem to just either recycle plots, or just be gross. Yes, I am rambling... The joys of sleep deprivation... =) Which Ray Bradbury books have you read? And Piers Anthony? What books do you like the most? Who is Robert Apsrin? What did he do to annoy you? The pet store by you sounds really nice. The self colored opaline sounds nice. My fantasy bird is either a sky blue yellow face type II dilute spangaline, or a really deep visual violet "brightening factor" (I don't know what the real name for that gene is) spangaline. I might actually produce the first from Reeps and Caspy. The second I will have to buy, either a parent or the actual bird. All I need is a double factor violet cobalt angel wing and breed her to Merlin... So pretty... Angel would kill me. That colorado trip sounds cool.

It is so important to me to rescue animals, I think there are so many that need help, and budgies are so cheap, lots of people I have heard of get budgies just to decorate for a party, I think that is what Peter might have been. Thank you for saying it is a nice picture- I practice all the time because I would like to be a wildlife photagrapher. It is a good camera, though, so that helps. And that is a very good drawing of a budgie. He just looks like he has so much personality in the drawing.

  Sorry that I haven't written- I've been going crazy getting stuff done for school while handfeeding. No sleep for me... =) That store sounds so cool! I get a lot of vintage bird books from a used book store owned by some friends of mine. If you want any, you should see their website- it's squirreledawaybooks.com. I doubt that's how you spell it, but there you go. It's the best book store ever. They have really geeky card games, such as Devil Bunny Needs Ham, and The Awful Green Things From Space, and of course Munchkin. They also have millions of old sci-fi books. I love old sci-fi books. What kind of book are you into? That jewelery class sounds rather boring. I think you have to be a certain type of personality to get into that. I share a classroom with a beading teacher, and those people are really into it. I don't know how they do it. Ug! No meijer birds! I have a friend that tried to reform meijer by working in the pet section. I don't belive the things those people do. If I didn't know her, I would think she was making it up. What they do is they get a shipment of birds, and they want them all to sell before the next shipment. And there is this policy, that any birds that die of "natural causes" get replaced for free. So, if any of the birds don't sell, or are sick, or low in the pecking order, the people there put them in back and starve them to death. She managed to save some of them, (took them), and then she got fired. We tried so hard to get the ASPCA to do something, but they wouldn't. So I am boycotting Meijer. And Petsmart. And Petco and Pet Supplies Plus. None of them take proper care of their birds. And I will stop ranting now. =) What are you going to Colorado for? Colorado sounds so cool. Breeding lovebirds sounds like so much fun. They are little horomone bombs. I used to have one, but he kept hurting my budgies (not on purpose), and I couldn't stand to cage either the budgies or him, so I gave him away. You should put up a picture of Pye. What color budgie were you thinking of getting to breed with Sam?

Sure, if you want to draw him. Peter will be very proud.
(ok, lets face it, more like conceited!) I actually did not think that picture was very good, it did not have good lighting.The only place I have currently that I can let them fly in that does not have pictures and such on the wall is a hall. I was trying to get a picture without a busy backgroud, but the light is not very good in there. I have their cage open all day, though, so they like flying in the bird room better. I am happy you liked the poem! (Another thing to make Peter conceited! I do not know how Ava and Yo-yo, his cage mates, stand it!)

  Yeah, she's evil. It was all for he bst, though. Aside from Dance dying. If hat hadn't happened, I would have gone into horses proffesionally, and been miserable. She's not an anomally- most horse people are insane. The shows are VERY political, especially the ones I do. It's all about your name, who your horses' parents are, and how skinny your horse is. That's it. Well, in halter. The other classes are somewhat better. It does get dirty. The stories I could tell... Like the time my horse bit the judge... That was so funny. The judge didn't think so, but oh well. I have three babies. They are doing very well. Whinny is a suprisingly good mother- I thought she might be a bit too flakey. She still does her happy dances. I am pulling the chicks on wednesday to handfeed. Tansy (the opaine albino) will be so pretty. I don't want to sell her... I hope leaving the nest box up works for your guys. Acrylic dries so strange. So does guash. I think I'll stick to colored pencil. What was breeding lovebirds like? Thinking of getting some more budgies still? Have you ever been to the Equine Affaire?
