Re: Loving home wanting a Grey(or any larger bird) in Missou

If you cant afford to buy a COCKATIEL and all that it needs, then
dont get a bird. No, feeling sorry for someone, just puts the bird
at risk. people who actually buy their birds, actually care and
provide for them. Honey, life give us all ups and downs and
everyone has bad experiences, get over it, do your best.
