Hello to all old and new members. Some of you may remember all our birds from being a member here. Well since my last post of losing Sultan March of 2016 we have lost all our birds to born a virus, pdd. We just lost Penney our U2 on July 4th @9:11pm. Penny was the last survivor and we think she may have been the carrier because she did come back positive for abav as well as Sultan. So hopefully they are all flying with the angels together as a family again. As far as me and Gina well we are a complete mess, our birds were our only family we had and our home will nvr be the same. On a good note the night penny passed I called a old parrot friend of ours to let her know about penny's passing. Well my Grand mother always told me things happen for a reason,, so my friend had told me she was going to actually call me Thursday to ask if we were interested in rescuing a 28 yr old M2 that we had met 8 years prior and I didn't want to make Sultan my M2 jealous and we already had a flock so we passed on the bird. Anyway we got in touch w the owner of the M2 that needs rescuing and we are picking him, her up Monday night . The M2 story is the owner's got the bird as a wedding gift 28 years ago it hasn't been handled by them in 5 years only by there son, has no chew toys, cage is to small, no people stimulation, nothing to chew and screams all day until they cover it with a sheet. So my question is does anyone have any suggestions on bringing him home. He, she already has a vet appointment in 3 weeks(unstress, settle in, get comfy) time and once he is settled in we are getting him, her a new bigger cage. We are in a new house sine all other birds passed away except Penny and will get all new toys, cage, bowls, etc so nothing will be contaminated so we hope we are doing the rite thing. Oh I got off track ugh. Back to rescuing this bird was this a sign from penny for her to be free so we can provide a better, happier home for the new bird?? Did she know ? Memere always said things happen for a reason and God works in mysterious ways... Anyway please comment and suggestions. Thanks allot. Sorry for the long story, rant..
