Perhaps I missed something but I did not see any mention of
breeding. Are you so ignorant of keeping birds that you don't
realize that often a new owner will hand feed a new young bird
for several days after bringing it home? If you are so ill
informed, why are you always putting your less than two cents in
here? Or are you just so jealous of someone who does seem to
know what they are talking about and all you have in your life is
to put hateful, snide comments on message boards. You might want
to consider getting some professional help with the apparent lack
of self esteem.
