    I'm kinda glad and kinda disappointed at the same time to be able to
    tell you all that the owner of the birds came and picked them up last
    week. I'm glad because I know now that at the very least they are being
    fed and looked after, but at the same time, I had grown attached to them
    in the time that I spent with them. Either way, I guess it was the best
    thing that they are with their rightful owner now. So, I am now back on
    my search to find a breeder with red bellies, brown heads, or meyers :o)
    If anyone knows of a breeder in Florida....

    I think I wanted those birds (the red belly the most) because I knew
    they were being neglected and they just needed someone to love and take
    care of them, plus, they were two of the funniest animals I have ever
    seen lol. Thanks for all of the great advice!
