Thank you for your kind words about Shinza. He was a sweetheart. I've known for the last year that he had a heart condition - the vet said he'd probably die very quickly, and I would find him dead, which is just what happened, so I'm glad at least that he didn't suffer.
Thank you for your help ID'ing these little ones. Shoot, all girls.. I was so hoping one was a male, so that I could get another asap. I know PTPO will be lonely and is missing his friend. Fingers crossed I can find one soon.. thanks again!
Yes, I've looked for avian rescues, area Humane Societies, and animal shelters - so far, no luck. I'd much rather find a little guy who is in need of a good home/better situation than buying from a breeder. Nothing against breeders - just would prefer to find a bird in need. I don't want PTPO (my other little guy) to be without a friend for too long, though, so might have to go ahead and buy from a private breeder. Thank you!
So~ regarding the gender - it's unanimous, that these are all girls? Not one boy in the group? Thanks again!
