Well, I have a fundraiser set up for my chickies. 

An online friend, Julie, has been helping me with my birds. She has connected with some people who are donating towards my growing vet bill. I have set up a gofundme account in hopes of getting some donations.

I really do hate to ask, as I normally try to fundraise for other people. But I need your help. Even if you can’t donate, please share this with your friends! I would be forever grateful. 

(Friends with a lot of followers, please please please reblog this. I will love you forever.)

the-procrastinators-initiative asked: I have three parrotlets and one of them is taking the strings from the basket that they have collectively ripped apart and attaches it to her back. Why do they do that? O.o

Anyone who knows please send answers to or post directly here!
