parakeet in this picture is named "Chubb." He came to be
my pet in a weird kind of way. A South Philadelphia neighbor of ours
had a grandmom that had a bird and wanted to get rid of him. She
brought him to me and he became my second bird. He was a scary thing
with a beak that had grown malformed almost down to his belly. With
only a few days of his company, I had his beak trimmed, him on my
finger, playing with the other budgie, singing happy tunes and
thrilled with his new house. It will be a year I have him in July. He
imitates the other budgie a lot and he is a very chubby bird!
