You know, with what you've said, I really think you should
take pictures of the birds you get, keep your recipes, and have either
a video log day by day, or organized photo journals, with the dates on
the photos. This way you could have evidance of the condition of the
bird when you bought it and the improvment, to show that some stores
are neglecting their birds.
