Thank you again folks for all your messages, they all still make me cry. Silly really, I always said we were being selfish to cry as we were crying for our own loss. Our dear little pets are no longer suffering so everything should be ok.
Fly high: Billy Boy, Charlie, Harvey, JoJo, Joe, Lacey, Missy, Oscar, Pickle and Smudge. RIP: Penny, Poppy, Lola, Georgie, Bea, Morgana, Phoebe, Truffle, Hazel, Tilly, Tuppence and Mollie.

So sorry, your bravery at letting him go with dignity is a fine tribute to Harvey's bravery in life. Fly free without pain little guy xx

Oh Shirls there is nothing worse than having to make this decision, it's just horrible. Poor little Harvey, you had his best interests at heart and if his quality of life was bad then you did the right (but hardest) thing. Sending you a big hug as I am sure you need one right now RIP sweet Harvey xxx
Sadly it seems exhibition and 'fancy' birds don't generally live near as long as 'pet' birds but Shirls, crying is a natural human emotion and we are given it for a purpose. Never feel bad about having a cry about any pet, it means you're a warm hearted human being. God bless.
Just out of curiosity, how can you tell the difference between an exhibition/fancy bird to a pet bird?
Exhibition birds are usually a lot larger than 'pet shop' birds. My pickle is a 'pet shop' bird she is the white one, Harvey is the exhibition bird the green one. Missy is also an exhibition bird, the light blue hen. Oh, I forgot!!! Charlie the blue one is also an exhibition bird!
