    umm.. might i add something... I have seen a few years back that petco
    was "okay" in my area, and then they started to house too many finches in
    this small small flight and it was horrible, bought two egg bound zebra
    hens and a pied society finch male who looked as though he was egg bound
    but was not and his vent/cloaca area was very swollen, and well i dislike
    petco since, plus when they house the black-masked lovies together they
    would "squable" in a vicous manner, even a littl egirl i remember from two
    years ago asked this guy at the cashier an let me point out this little 7-
    8 year old was very intelligent and asked why they were fighting, and the
    guy said " No, they are playing" and i was so upset, birds do not pluck
    othe rbirds and scream and push the birds off the perches... this is not
    playing... Well since then there was SO many complaints of abuse that the
    petco store had to remodel their bird section which they did quite
    finelly. And well now the finches and parrot and everything are housed
    with their own species... haven't seen lovebirds their since a couple year
    back... but they have improved with keeping things clean and all... but
    they over crowd the cages and they never keep feeding dishes filled with
    seed only husks... and well they let the zebra build nest in their food
    cups, and i have two petco near me... One in Lynnwood and one in south
    Everett, and well i can say they do look good/better than before.. i
    haven't notice any eggbound or sick bird except the server plucked... and
    smaller cages for the large parrots...
