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.

Oh, so sorry you had to give them away. But it does sound like you've found them a great home. :')

I'm so happy that you found them a good home; the guy really sounds like he'll be really good to them.
However, I also know that pain as I've had it a too many times myself. :( I had to give up my dog earlier this year, and while I am so happy that he is in a good place, I'm also sad as I'll never hear about him again. I'll never know when he's dead or if the rescue placed him in a good home. So I understand the pain you're going through. Take comfort that you can call him up and check in on them; I can't even do that.

Oh, that's sad to hear that it's finally been done. ;n; It had to happen sooner or later I suppose. Besides, they're at a good home. ;u;
And I'm sure that you've earned a memorable place in their heart, just as they stay in yours. ;u;

I know what it's like to give away a beloved pet. Both my dog and my cat had to be given away. I'm not even sure where the cat is or how it's doing anymore, which makes me upset because the owner states that he's there and doing well, though I haven't seen him when I visited. And now everyone in the household split up, so I have no idea who the cat went with, if he was even still with them.
It hurts to watch a pet go, but that just goes to show the bond set between you and it. ;u;

Wow, that's really sad. Milkshake and Kes where huge parts of your artwork for who knows how long. We'll all miss em'. Kinda reminds me of my late pet lizard, Mitch. I'll never forget his escape attempt when I first got him, the store clerk tried to get him out of his cage and Mitch just leaped out and scrambled across the pet shop. It caused quite a bit of commotion but we finally did get him. Then, the next year, he slipped off of his leaf and broke his back, and that killed him. I know this hardly has anything to do with this, as in you gave your birds away and my lizard died, but it's just really painful to loose a pet. After having them for so long, it feels like they're part of the family.

I'm sorry.
I know the feeling of having a beloved companion being taken away. I had a dog named Hope. When we were moving into our apartment we couldn't pay to keep her so my mom gave her to one of her friends. The friend got divorced and the parent Hope was staying with gave her away to someone they didn't even know. We can only pray Hope is okay now.
