Lurches anniversary
« on: December 25, 2012, 01:04:55 AM »
Just realized today is Lurches 3rd aniversary to coming to live with us :danceparty: at least for a few more minutes. I got him shortly after we  lost Nerd who was my friend for 31 years, he was also a Maxi so family chipped after lil sis found Lurch online and we drove an hour away to meet and buy him
Been a interesting 3 years and we are still coming to a understanding but he's pretty fond of us most times. Hope to have many more years together and become better freinds.

I have no clue, I just know he was with me for 31 years and the shop I got him and his brother from guessed they were around 2 but had no real clues. Pretty sure they were both wild caught as I got them in 78 with no bands and they made different noises compared to what Lurch does though his are similar.
He also was the skinny, bad feather color one of the two and he was the one that continued on in to old age so sometimes just because the bird seems a bit underweight and sickly doesn't mean they wont have a long happy life with some care, love, and luck.

Thanks everyone, will be working on hanging in there with Lurch for a long time. He seemed to be in a good mood today anyways, no nips and he was stealing our food quite nicely :wink1:
