What is it that my life is worth
How much will you pay
To what extent would you go
If I get ill today?
I know I'm not an expensive bird
My cost is fairly cheap
But what is the price you put on life
For something that you keep?
My wings still spread out the same
My heart still has a beat
So why is it that my cousins
Are the ones you hold so sweet?
I cannot help that I was born
Without a golden egg
Will you still take care of me
Or make me plead and beg?
I rely on you to help me
As I can't do it for myself
Will you take the steps needed
Or just put me on the shelf?
So when you walk by me
Please look me in the eye
If it would come down to it
Woud I live or would I die?

I saw this on another forum and had to post. I was almost in tears.

Makes me feel really bad because we do not have a avian vet here. I'd spend all the money in the world on my babies. Lets hope my bunch stay well until i can move out and live closer to a vet.
thats hard when you don't have one close by, I feel the same way about mine.

That is really sweet. I hate it when people get a budgie or something and think its just a 'garbage' pet because it's so cheap. And think they can do anything they want to it, and if something happens then who cares its only like 20 bucks down the drain.
I hate it when people think like that.

My dad very much thinks that vet bills are wasted on a $20 bird. Good thing he has me to tell him differently. ;) I only recently found an avian vet, he's about a 30min drive from our house but he's really good. I feel a lot better knowing that we have a good vet if ever the birds get sick. He's already seen Bailee for a well-bird check when i first bought him home. :)

Well from what i can see there is no avian vet only one who knows a little about bird but doesn't really want to treat them.
That's such a shame. :( For quite a while i had no idea there was an avian vet in Canberra, and i would always get stressed to think of a bird getting sick in the aviary or something.
