Re: Back from the Fair

What do you mean "no flack coming your way" well, here is some:
-
WHAT??? Merlin was with siblings and you did not bring us one as well??!! What were you thinking!?!
-
LOL, great find - I hope Merlin will be healthy and a great friend to you and Luna.
-
You had me completely fooled (red the other post about the market first) and you sounded somewhat disappointed ... and now this!
Happy for you!

I was very unhappy with the breeder.
The cage of GCA that Merlin was in had nothing but a seed mix heavy on sunflower seeds.
I asked about diet/pellets and his response was "oh ya there is pellets in the seed mix". Could not have been more than 20 to 1 ratio.

If there had been another breeder with the same type of Amazon I would have preferred to buy from someone else. Unfortunately I can't save all the birds out there, I can only hope someone responsible buys the others/.

A while back I started a thread with a pole about buying a RLA that was at the local pet shop. I wanted to get her to be a friend for Luna also. In the end many people came up with very valid reasons why it was a bad idea.
Some of those reasons still apply.
I know it's not a good idea to buy a bird for a bird you already have. That's what I mean by getting a lot of flack about getting Merlin.

Re: Back from the Fair

Grinnn, we know that you are aware of what you are doing- and I am so keeping my fingers crossed those two will like each other.
But if it does not happen- you will still be great to both of them - so no flacking....
