    KittyJ we all agree that there are a lot of bird scams going
    on. As to what birds sell for it can range from $100.00 to
    3000. You said if you live in the same area see pictures of
    the bird? Well anyone can copy and paste any photo and say it
    is the bird they have for sale, just as I could post a picture
    of a beauty queen and say it is me. LOL Just a joke.


    PS. Spell check is easy just type your post into a new mail
    window then run spell check then copy the corrected
    post here. I use a lot of copy and paste.

    The whole reason why people (as a rule) go to places like
    livedeal.com or birdmart.com is because they have already
    looked for a pet in their city and can't find one.

    By CRIAGS LIST did you mean craigslist.org? Great place to
    find a lot of other things for sale right in your own town.
    BTW They don't sell pets on that but I know what you mean
    by some people put an ad in MD and live in NC.

    Now this may get me a lot of angry replies but I speak my mind.

    Not everyone feels the same as I do and that is ok.

    I won't buy from a breeder or pet store for the simple reason
    that there are so many homeless and unloved pets in shelters
    and rescue organizations and I would rather give a
    home to a homeless or unwanted animal.

    I am adopting Winston a beautiful 8 month old Dachshund that
    is in a wheelchair. I will get him a week from today. I could
    buy a Dachshund pup for $75. to $100. around here and it cost
    more for me to adopt Winston but it also makes me feel good to
    give Winston a home.

    I also have a special needs bird and another dog.
    The bird came from a breeder who couldn't sell him because
    someone got mad and beat the bird with a hammer, taking off
    two of his toes. The breeder gave him to a rescue
    organization and I got him from there. The poor dog was an
    abuse case also but from kids. They broke this tiny
    chihuahua's legs then threw him into a pool. Thank God a woman
    came by and took the dog to an animal hospital which is where
    I got him after helping to pay for his surgery. They had to
    remove one leg because it was mashed so bad it couldn't
    be repaired.

    For all the breeders , pet stores and people who buy from
    them I say to each his own. I am not in any way putting you
    down just sharing what I feel.

    Sorry I got off subject a bit but I have spent the last week
    helping to move animals that had been abused along with 3 dead
    birds that were tied to a tree without food and left to die.

    I put the link to see Winston's photo if anyone cares to see
    him.
