Hi all on the site this is my first post,i would like to be a good one but,there is always a but.
Most of my life i have rescued gaint schnuazers i have had three my last one died 11mths ago it took me a very long time to get over him.
I have a friend who asked if i would look after charlie his afircan grey we said we would to and we have had him for over 5 mths we love him to death and will be gutted when he goes.
My friend then said to me his son has a female afircan grey that we can have if we wanted it.
So a new large cage was bought,with food,toys,books, for CoCo she is a doll 4yrs old but like any woman can be tempermental,but we stil love her.
As for the show well what can i say? for a first timer it was a shock,i could not believe seeing 5 baby greys in a very small carboard box,we spoke to the woman who said one was 13 wks the others were 10 wks and while we were there she hand fed them yoghurt from a spoon, it was not the greys in the box on the table it was the ones under the table that shocked us,small boxes not ones i would use to keep birds.
We also seen others in boxes under tables and not happy.
If its a bird show then the birds have to come FIRST thier safety and wellbeing.
I thought the show was a market for birds thats what it looked like,and some of the smaller birds were in boxes no bigger than a shoe box.
As i have a lot to learn and a lot i wish to learn i will go again,and i would hope to make friends with some of you on the site.
