I suspect my Roxy may challenge them on the weight claim unless I can limit her intake.... another few grams and the "flightless" bit will also be our claim. Hang on a minute shes also green ....Ive been tricked. shes no amazon

Re: found this interesting

I have to admit, when I saw those first pics I wasn't exactly going 'Awww...what a cutie'. It was more like 'Uck...is that a bird or a radioactive rodent?'. But the pic with it's wings spread out really does it justice. I like how they look kind of spotted.
