|And, this is the little king himself.
Ryen is a Congo African grey. Grey's were always my 'dream bird'...
everybody has one, you know. Not greys, dream birds. When I
researching my first bird (a budgie) I decided that greys were the bird
I would get, if I ever had the money and resources. Not that I ever
seriously thought that I'd have an extra $1,000 or so for a pet bird, especially
at 11 years old ;-)
So I waited. By 14 it was actually
within the realm of possibility... not that I thought I'd have an extra
$1,000, but we were to the point where if I DID have an extra $1,000, I
might actually spend it on a bird.
