If you know anything about me, you would know how much I love little birds.
And not only do we have Maggie our very adventurous Cockatiel, but also four lovely little finches.
We found 'Booky' our fawn female finch down the bottom of her cage, and a very sad mate crying on his perch above her.
We started off with 'Scrappy' (quite a little story)
And she was lonely so Hannah and I went to the pet shop and got her a friend. There wasnt any grey zebra finch males only fawn female ones, so we got her 'Booky'
They were great friends
But they need mates - male mates...
Here's the story on getting 'Croppy and Inky'
Scrappy eventually passed away, and we got 'Stampy' who took up with Inky
Here's Booky with her mate 'Croppy' and now Croppy is sad without his mate
We got Booky towards the end of 2008, so for a little finch... her time had come.
Bye bye Booky
It's always sad losing a pet, even if its a little bird.
