    Boo on you for criticizing me and what I do with my birds. Who do
    you think you are by being mean to others? I did do it in a timely
    manner and it did not work. Who are you to tell me not to breed? You
    are a very ugly person. Travis should do what he think is right. If
    the taping works great. But don't go acting like a Miss Know - it -
    all and telling people things in a cruel manner! This is not what
    this chat is all about or are you too vain to see that?!
