    I agree with that! I fell in love with tiels at a pet store - they
    were hand-fed and in open topped plexiglass type boxes - each one is
    about 4x4 and can be divided in half and quarter. Anyway, I was there
    to get my puppy fix. I turned around to look at the rest of the store
    and noticed a couple of 10-12 year old boys holding tiels. Mmmm I
    thought - lets investigate. I put my hand in front of one, it jumped
    on my finger, I lifted it up and fell in love.

    Wasn't buying then, I wanted to look into it first. I had a couple of
    paradeets as a kid many years ago and that was my knowlegde of birds.
    That's how I found Birdmart. I went home, looked on line to find
    information to see if it would be an appropriate pet for us.

    Worked on my husband for a few weeks - and I bought her about 5 weeks
    after my initial introduction to tiels. And we are both still crazy
    about her! I bought her from a different store, but I still go back
    to the first store quite often. They have a couple of baby grays that
    are so darn cute! I was even captivated by a Vos Marie Eclectus - we
    really did love each other, but alas he was purchased (too expensive
    for my pocket at that store!)

    I would love to get another bird, my husband says no - one is enough.
    I told him fine, but if and when he goes - I'm getting another! I
    just hope Luna will be OK with it and not get too jealous!!
