    Just wanted to let everyone know because you all were so sweet and worried about them when they were lost in the mail, they passed away this morn. i found out tho through an email this same person i recieved my birds from has sold sick birds to others. and they had the same problems. So i will be way more diligent on getting my birds from now on. Thank gosh i had enough animal experience to know they were sick and kept them away from my flock. I feel for the birds tho, they should not have had to start with a life like that, i just feel a lil better knowing their last days were filled with love and caring! Thanks everyone!!

    Sorry to hear about your birds. It is terrible that people would intentionally do that to animals and then send them to people that paid good money for them. Poor babies, at least they had you at the end.

    I am so sorry for your loss- that is a big bummer!!!

    I would consider taking legal action against the seller. This is not always easy to do with long distance sales, but it has been done, and it might be easier in your case than in most because there were live animals involved.
