No. I just heard from others and I remember telling them that they
had a sick society finch (she was very puffed and and not moving
while birds trampled her around(this was the time they had all the
types of finches together in one cage)) and I saw them put her in
the bird box and go back of the store where the frozen food for
animals are at. Also once they almost sold a mouse to a guy who
actually said " Yeah I am buying this mouse as a present for my cat
to ruffle around a bit" It was around Christmas and they would have
sold the mouse to the guy if mom and I didn't have big mouths, lol.
Today I woke up to a beautiful song and I looked around my room for
the sorce of this music and Whitey was singing his heart out. I
guess he is well enough now. It wss his first noise since being
hear. Strange for a finch.. And I have decided I will wait a couple
days before taking him back( want him to be well enough) and telling
the store they should check their birds weight. And I will cpmplain
about their empty birdseed shells again! I am always complaining...
Well Today I am going back to the store to get the other white
finch. Just 2 weeks ago They had 8 white finches... I wonder what
happen to those lil angels...
p.s: I know everyone says you should wait a few days before feeding
your new bird veggies and all those goodies, but I fed them to him
yesterday and today and wow he just gobbles his breakfasts right up,
and is ready for the next meal! lol
