    give u a break huh???? lets see how quick you'd get yourself to the dr

    lets just wait and see...........i feel sorry for your bird......you
    said i must be a struggling vet.....nope, but i have the sense to get my

    get a hurt animal the help it needs...that's just plain pitiful and
    against the law as well. i hope the burd survives your care....or
    should it be the lack of it.
