    :D No... I did not come home with a new bird. BUT! They had a Canary Winged Bee Bee that was pretty darn cute. AND! Half price.....which would make it 175.00. NO!!! I am not even slightly entertaining another bird. They told me the price was lowered because it had aggressive behavior. Smack dab on the glass was written " Half price... needs a good home". Gee, I wish I could but I can't. I tried to pry any information out as far as age, if it was banded but it seems they didn't know much other than it has been there for a couple of months. The young girl employee told me she didn't know it was aggressive ( but a guy that worked there said it was) ...she had her hand in there earlier to give it food. I asked, did it try to bite you? No... Me: "Well, he's probably aggressive because he's in a tiny compartment, he needs someone to work with him and his food is crappy." :smuggrin:

    Anyhoo... just in case someone out there is looking for a feathered friend.... one cute little Bee Bee parrot needs a home. Wish I had an Iphone to take a photo.... just a flip phone for this old lady.

    Myrtle Beach Pet Smart.... just so you know where to go....:laughing12:

    Oh.. forgot to mention.. the budgies were super cute. I always have to spend a few minutes watching them. One little cutie was hopping around the enclosure like a tiny caique. SO CUTE!

    Yeah.. that would be a long drive for you. It was a nice looking bird and caught my eye because I know you don't see them often. Especially for a store like petsmart. I went in there to get something for my dogs but always have to take a look at the birds. I love watching the budgies... they are so comical! I should have asked them to take it out just to see how it reacted but I knew I wasn't going to buy it so it would have been a waste of their time. It did seem very calm sitting on it's perch but then, they keep them in those small glass enclosures so they don't have much room to move around. Too bad I don't have a smart phone or I would have taken a picture and posted that too. I felt sorry for it being there. I hope it finds a home with someone who will work with it.

    I saw one for sale at Petsmart several months ago. Was surprised to see him/her because I generally just see budgies, 'tiels, finches, canaries and conures. That was the first time I ever saw a Bee Bee at PS.

    I wish I could.
    But the funds for another cwp aren't in the works till I have a job.

    I can afford two birds .. Not three.
    I'm not exactly living in my own home here.
    But...soon.
    Soon.
