That's great! He sounds like a cute and lucky little guy!
Nope no name yet. My friend suggested Bently, because he's bent, but I'm not too sure yet...I'm glad it's turning out so well, Ella! Sounds like the best thing that could've happened to the little guy! Have you picked a name, yet?
Thats such a good idea!!! Thanks! Come to think of it, he does look like pirate, limping everywhere!That's a cute one... I would name him after a pirate of some sort - he's green like a mini-pirate parrot and he limps like a pirate with a peg leg would!
Lovebirds are little characters aren't they?:lol: You're welcome!! Only reason I thought of it is we had a lovebird whose foot we had to amputate at the shop so he had a little stump (they had to take from the 'knee' down) and we called him "Peg Leg the Pirate" He would climb all over, swing on his swings, and he was the BOSS of the whole cage!
:yikes: Thats terrible! It sounds so painful.The breeder had put an open band on his foot and put it on so tight and uneven that the under-layer had grown into his foot :frown: Like... instead of it fitting straight and even, one prong went underneath the other. The vet said it looked like a bone had been broken too... She initially removed the band and bandaged him up and tried to save the foot, but one of his toes started to die and the lovie started chewing his own toes off :yikes: So she decided to amputate both for his sake and ours.
It was a new breeder who bought a bunch of breeding stock from a shady breeder who went out of business and just auctioned her birds off... she had no idea what she'd gotten into and when we confronted her, she realized all the problems and actually gave up all her breeders to our manager because she felt so terrible about what she'd done and didn't want to hurt anyone else, so it did have a happy ending. And Peg Leg found a loving home :lovehearts:
