hey linda,...if you read my post i clearly stated that it was
tramatic for the bird...i'd think this would be good warning. i
too have known people who did it...not myself of corse....and they
think it's the best way. i tend to think if your bird is of a
color that makes it so hard to tell then get it tested...the only
people i know of that have concern for sex of the animal are the
one's who intend to breed...at my house i have more concern for
the health of the animal than the sex.
my lucy is doing very well...just a smidge fat...but i think it's
because she wasn't getting much exercise till now as what she was
used to....she was being let out only an hour or so a day until we
knew she wasn't sick....can't have my birdies getting sick.
anyway, my little budgie weaned herself!!!!i almost cried the day
it happened but she is doing very well in her new home
now....thanks for all of the advice sweetie!!!jill
