    Thanks !! I don't know how she ever survived !! I traced their
    leg bands back to 4 different homes before mine. (all in a matter
    of months)
    I hate that I got "ripped off" by the seller. But, I knew that I
    had to do the right thing !! I still keep in touch with the
    people that bought both birds.... they are doing GREAT. I'm
    attaching a photo of the female. Sad huh? I named her Betty Lou,
    after my mother-in-law, that was injured in the hands of a nursing
    home.... the new owner kept her name.
