Oh Brad, I'm so sorry. There is no such thing as saying, he was, or she was..."just" this or "just" that, when it comes to pets. No matter what type of pet, it hurts to lose them when you love them the way you did your parrot. And you are right, young for that age in a Parrot..but right again, no pain for that little one anymore. He was so lucky to have found you for those last few years. I know you loved him. I know how you are with your pets. They are very lucky indeed to have you taking care of them. You commit. You give them all you have when it comes to loving and caring. I hope that knowing this little one is not in pain any longer gives you at least a bit of peace of mind in losing a friend. I wish I was there to give you a real hug!
Looked up the arrival date on the Pencils from Dick H. I got them on Jan 19th, but they were already a day or two old..so were hatched around mid Jan. Coming up on 4 months next month!
