Wow!!!! I don't if I should drive for two days to shake some sense into the cRaZy fool or to apluad him for at least being honest about why the 'too is being re-homed. But, how they think they are going to get $1500 for a bird they are calling such horrible names, is way beyond me. I will never ever know what make some people tic.... CrAzY! I don't even want to think about how they are handling the poor dear.

For the bird's sake, I hope someone steps up soon, but I cannot imagine responding to that post with anything other than some educational tips that would probably go in one ear and out the other. I really hope they haven't even had the bird for very long.

I have very little patience for stupid people and that person didnt deserve that bird at all. I hope who ever buys it isnt influenced by the stupidity of the current owner.

People really *@&? me off, seriously. I hate people who gets birds, ESPECIALLY macaws and cockatoos for what I believe to be social prestige. They think they're so cool in front of their friends for having such an expensive parrot and when the bird gets sick of the way it is gunna be treated then it bites. The person then thinks it's totally the birds fault. Well, I really wanna go out there and kick their butts so hard they'll be tasting my designer shoes for a week!

Lucy was a bit of an impulse buy. I knew I wanted a bird. Just hadnt researched te different kinds. Believe me I took a crash course in parrotlets. She was an il thing when I brought her home too. You wouldnt think it was the same bird and Im not exagerating. I wouldnt have given up on her though. I love Lucy to death. My others too. I consider myself a good bird mom. People like this jerk get me so mad! Id love to be able to afford a nice big bird but I cant. A little work and I betthey would have had a great bird! They said the bird talks, can you imagine the language it uses!!

I would drive 3 - 4 hours to drive and thank the owner for giving it a good home and maybe if I were a lot older and had the money, time, and space for him, would give him a loving home http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-pets-bir...AdIdZ317377251
