I went to the bird sale today
it is held at the end of every month up at Seghill, there were plenty of breeders there selling birds.
Though I didn't get a bird myself I did manage to get Kes and Milkshake a new home...
The person who bought them is on the committee of the bird club and the aviary he has in an indoor one, he said he goes to nearly all the shows and left me his number so I can ring up and check on them.
Despite the fact I know this is a good home for them, I know he will take care of them, watching them be taken away was more like a punch in the chest than a relief,
its quiet without them, I know I shouldn't be sad about it I mean they will be with other birds and the guy said he had owned bourkes before, in fact when we brought them in he asked if they were bourkes (we had them half covered with a towel for the cold) So I do believe that.
still, Even if they we rent tame birds, even if they didn't like being handled a lot of bothered.
they still let em hand feed them sometimes, the still did the 'step up command' and didn't freak out when I was near them even though they wouldn't let anyone else in my house near them.
I haven't bothered to clean out there empty cage yet though.
