    I couldnt help but to agree with Kelsi, I lost my green quaker due to
    unclip wings, I was going to take him to vet to get his wings and nail
    clip on weekend and that's why we were keeping him inside the house for
    the time being. One lil crack open window this friday afternoon and he
    flew away, we have been looking for him since then. Post flyers and
    everything, so far unable to find. :(. Only if I had learn to clip his
    wings myself.
    Anyways, if anyone see any green quaker in southwest Houston, TX area
    please post a msg or send an email to He goes by
    Meetu or Tota, very friendly 1.5 yrs old and there is reward as well.
