can't believe this!

So I went to the auction I usually go to every Monday.

There wasn't much there tonight at all compared to the usual masses (because all the birds are breeding ). There were 4 garden doves, 9 zebra finches, 4 Bengalese finches, a cockatiel, a fife canary and 2 lizard canaries. That is hardly anything so that wasn't that great I guess.

We put a bid in for 2 pairs of zebra finches and yup, we won the bid at 4 per bird. So that was all cool.

I met another falconer there too, which was awesome, and he's bringing down his Harris' hawk for me next Monday so I can handle her for a bit and check her out, she's a huge girl weighing in a 2.4, my Harris' is only 1.5/6!! Haha. So I got all excited about that.

We finished our drink at the bar and went over to pick up the zebbies we'd payed for, when suddenly a guy stood around the birds picked up the boxes and swiftly made an exit! I couldn't believe the *CENSOR CENSOR CENSOR * took our birds! He walked straight out with them! He STOLE our birds! So the manager and a few others chased after him but by the time we got there the *CENSOR * had gotten away GRRRR I could punch the man! WHO HONESTLY DOES THAT!?

Woah!! What the...? That's so strange. Zebra finches aren't that expensive anyway. That's ridiculous. I'd be pretty upset. Did you still have to pay?
