I have not been on often as I would like to be seemed life really got in the way. I have sold all my birds I still have a few straglers that avoided the roundup but they will be captured soon as well. So for now I have only 5 guineas 1 duck 1 goose 2 hens and the 2 emu which are slated for a zoo hopefully soon. I sold them all to a neighbor down the road. So it will be no more outdoor birds for me I am concentrating on my inhome parrot santuary and rescue. I made this decission because my world came crashing down on me. On December11,2008 I lost my husband of 10 years to a ruptured aortic dissection, he was only 45. And he went through this alone and at the end with a stranger trying to save his life a nameless and faceless person who I will never be able to thank. We started our rescue together and it only seems fair to concetrate on them and I know the outdoor babies will do well I am very good friends with the person who bought them. I still enjoy reading your stories so I will try to stick around will have to see how things go around here.
