I see your point, ok. But it is also a fact that people really have
no clue on "proper" bird care. I think even a lack of stimulation
(toys) is abuse. I think improper cage size is abuse...example...a
cage that is way too small. But so many people do not realize this
and I am shocked by what I have seen. Some people have no clue and
this is scary.
I just pray...if this post is real...that this bird does not
languish in a dark closet or basement somewhere in America. Owning
a large Too is a very serious commitment that most people can not
cope with. My U2(Fabian) is very demanding. I love him dearly and
would take nothing for him. I also knew how to reach out for help
and had /have a great support of other bird friends.
This post really bothered me for some reason? But sometimes Fran,
there really are people that have no clue and are ignorant...not
stupid, just ignorant.
If you own a parrot...you and I both know that you will get bit and
its a very good chance of it.
I feel for the bird as well, but maybe this post is not real. If
its not, then its sick to post it.
