saw a pair of birds at the pet store yesterday (had to get food for the other inhuman eating machine). I have no idea what they were, but I felt so bad for the poor girl, she was trembling, at least that's how it looked to me, reminded me of when I would take my cat to the vet. She had a strip of feathers removed from the back of her neck, I felt so sorry for her. The lady working there said it was the boy doing it, the he was the jealous type.
I hate pet stores sometimes. Before I could even say why not separate them, she said that doing that would stress them possibly to the point of death. I know nothing about birds, but I thought it still wasn't the best option.
