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 :shrug: 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! :yikes: I couldn't believe the *CENSOR CENSOR CENSOR :lol:* 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 :lol:* had gotten away :( GRRRR I could punch the man! WHO HONESTLY DOES THAT!? :mad:

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?
