I'm still in shock
I can't even begin to describe the day I've had!
2 days ago there was a sudden death in the family. I had to rush out of town. I hired someone to look after the various animals for a couple of days. Well , yesterday evening he took buddy out if his cage to feed him and said that buddy flew away before he could catch him. He's only ever flown once and that too just across the room.
I came back yesterday in a panic. It was night by then and nobody had seen him. I was distraught. He's only 7-8 weeks and has just started to eat some things on his own. Still has to be fed a couple of times. I asked everyone in the area to look out for him.
I cried so much today that my husband went out and bought me another pair of alexandrine parakeets thinking it would make me feel better.(as if)
Well, at 7 pm today while I was feeding the new birds, and still crying, the door bell rang and someone was standing outside HOLDING MY BUDDY. He had flown 2 lanes down from our house and been caught by some kids. They kept him the whole day thinking that they would keep him.
Someone told them that people were inquiring about a lost parrot and they came to check if it was ours.
I still can't believe it!
So now buddy is back and I have 2 new babies who seem to be about 3-4 weeks old!
I wish I could put up pictures and show you guys. How can I upload pictures here?
