Grey Tales, Pt. 2

Anyone remember my old thread "Grey Tales"? Well, as you may or may not know, I had gotten a baby CAG (Alex), but we eventually had to go our separate ways. I tried my best to get him back but was unable to. It still haunts me to this day.

However, I am happy to announce that I will be bringing home a new baby grey in approx. 4 weeks! It will be male, I am unsure of his age at the moment but will find that out and will be handfeeding him 2x per day when he comes home. I am getting him from the Sugarcreek Bird Farm (where I work) and I couldn't be happier!

Here's a photo of the clutch. Aren't they precious?!

I'm very excited indeed! And they are so beautiful!! I get to play with them whenever I go into work, too, which is great. I'm there all the time.

I am extremely unhappy and disapointed to let you guys know that I won't be getting him anymore.

Oh that's so disappointing! how heartbreaking!
If you don't mind me asking, why not? (don't answer if you don't want to!)

That sucks Abby, but maybe it just wasn't meant to be. You'll get your perfect Grey baby again one day! ^_^

I'm sorry, Abby, he is so cute!
But don't be too sad.
Maybe you can afford to buy a Grey baby later.
