Today at the petstore...

So today i went to the mall, and of course i have to go to the pet store right. Specially because this one of the only pet store i know of that have parrots there, most have budgies etc but this one has amazons and etc.
Most of the parrots there aren't for sale except like one. They always have this amazon(can't remember what kind of amazon it was) but anyway its been there for as long as i remember, it can talk and its name is Elmo. I also love going to see it. They also board birds, and also the owner has a few birds of his that he takes to work with him sometimes. Well today they had a young grey. The store owner just got it so its like baby i guess. I totally wanted to just steal it right then and there. It was actually really funny though because the girl who was playing with him who worked there really obviously didn't know anything about birds. My mom asked if he bites hard (duh! hes a grey of course he can!) but anyway i wasn't going to say anything right, and the lady that worked there was all like oh no he doesn't bite hard hes actually really pathetic he bites like a cockatiel. I was just thinking hmmmm i wonder what people here would have to say about that. Any way just thaught i'd tell you thaught cuz it was a bit funny.... i think at least. They also had a orange winged amazon i think it was there for sale for $1600!!!! that is so so so so so so so soooooooo expensive i think... i haven't really looked at amazon prices because after minzers stories i never want one lol, but i didn;t think they were quite that expensive. I guess it was just the over pricing pet stores. they charge 120$ for a hand fed Budgie pffft what a rip off. You can just go to a breeder get one for like 20$!! haha io really dont think petstore realize how much breeders charge.
anyway just my ranting blabbing.

Lol, glad I talked you out of an Amazon Meghan, hahaha. J/K, everyone else here seems to have Amazons that don't have an interest in killing them, so apparently it's just me...Anyway, Iggy was $1000 about 5 years ago, but I haven't seen a YC for that price since then...and I got him at a bird pet store, but their prices didn't seem too bad...

Yeah wait till he grows up a bit. Kito also had that pathetic bite, he now has the sharp bite, the next stage is the painful bite.

Re: Today at the petstore...

what is pathetic is the puppy stores in arizona charge betwee 2 and 5 thousand for a puppy. LIke I spent 350 on torre and the same kind of dog there 4500!!!!!! It's because it's where all the old people live I think.
