Well, for a while now, I've owned a parakeet. It used to be two, but one died, and so for a month or two it was just the one. Well, recently I noticed that the one parakeet has started shedding more than she should, including some blood feathers. I'm hoping its merely depression, as I've bought a new parakeet to be her companion.
The newest edition seems more content to either fly around the room or perch on me, where as the other two prefered the cage. I've decided to let my parakeets keep their wings, as its more fun watching them fly around the room, and easier to train them to do arial acrobatics if they can fly.
Today, I came across a rather funny comic, which you can view here.
