    Frankly I do not care if the bird's been plucked bald, is
    crippled, or has any other problems with it. I basically go
    against the text book rule " Buy only the healthiest birds in
    fullest plumage and avoid birds with missing toes, ect ect.." I
    always find the birds who are plucked and alittle battered to be
    very good mates. My birds that I buy I call rescues, because
    seriously, if I hadn't boughten the bird who is the
    most "ugliest" Who else would, and they really would miss out on
    the bird I have gotten because they always turn out so great!
    Okay, now that I have blabbered On I should talk about this bird

    Pet stores in washington never really cared for their sex birds,
    they may hostpitalize it and say a vet is treating them but
    actually the bird is in a small cage in the back of the store
    (saw this once) and they say their birds are fine when their
    cages are bad ( not specifically talking about a certain pet
    store, all of them in fact) And I heard from a worker at one of
    the petstores I go to, is that sometimes they'd end the animals
    misery by causing more misery by putting it in a extreme harsh
    invironment called the freezer. True...

    My bird, she seems to be coming around. She may be young. But
    looks fully feathered. I am not sure she has eaten but while I
    watched her while I read, She was hopping back and forth. I
    haven't heard a noise from her (can birds be mute???) and if I
    don't see her eat by tomorrow morning I may have to force feed
    (do not worry I fed wild finches, sparrows, starlings, and baby
    budgies before) I guess it will take her some time to realize
    she is in her own cage with no other finches to bully her and
    she has her own space and she needs to get use to the less noise
    and the budgies they fly and climb all over me and for the harsh
    and crazy words that come out of my starlings mouth (Not bad
    language just a lot of whistle, words, words twist around and
    noises he has learned >.<)

    I'll keep you all updated on how well whitey (hasn't been named
    yet) is doing and if she really is female. Thanks!
