hi all i thought this would make you all know how good a breeder i have here is the last email she sent me this morning

Good morning right back at ya..:)

Sometimes when the bird is fully weaned it can not eat when it goes to it's
new home. Thats because the hand feeding is a security thing for the bird. I
always say to my bird people to make sure the bird is eating and let me know
right away if it doesn't so I can step in and fix the situation.

When a bird goes to it's new home I always give a sample of the morning
feeding stuff I feed. That way the bird is used to it. I also tell the
person to make sure they have millet on hand because if a bird is going to
be picky it will eat the millet.

You don't have anything to worry about because we live so close to each

thats very nice she takes the time to give you all the instructions looks like you found a winner ;)
Those are instructions i could've used when i got Bailee. He stopped eating and i had to hand feed for a few extra days.
I had to feed hugs and slush for a bit over a week. They didn't want to stop. It was great fun besides the screaming for food lol.
