Grey's Don't Go Cheap
As you can see Janie has given me my own Piggy Bank to save up my pocket money. She says that I cost to much and that I will have to start supporting myself. I tried to explain that, that was what my wings were for, but she was having none of it.
It seems we are very expensive to maintain, besides the cost of buying me, and buying my cage. There are food costs, vet costs, toy costs and cleaning costs. Having a Grey or any bird in your home is something you should not undertake lightly it seems. We are not cheap, but we are lovable (mostly), but anyone considering buying one of my feathered chums, should really think hard before going ahead. As a wise man once said, 'Polly wants a cracker'. Not sure what that has to do with things, but it is a very wise saying you must agree.
Anyway, I really must get on with trying to work out how this Piggy Bank thing works, I am sure there is a nut in there if only I could work out how to get to it. Polly might want a cracker, but Darwin's prefer nuts!!!
