    Thanks so much, Pamela,
    What could fill someone with so much hate toward someone they don't even know?

    By the way, our sun conure, Lucy, died after several visits to an Avian vet.
    I held her that morning. We did an autopsy, wanting to know what could cause
    a young, healthy bird to take a turn like that for no reason. Results showed
    she had a bad heart. Our family was so saddened by the experience, the kids
    refused another sun conure because they didn't want to replace Lucy.

    Dudley has begun to vocalize, but for the most part sits quietly in his cage.
    My main concern is changing his food from all seeds to a pellet diet. We have
    a mix now, but he sure doesn't want the pellets. Any advice?
