We received a package the other day from Kelle, John and their flock. Inside were some of the budgies’ favorite things. Millet and marshmallows (what we call shreddable kabobs).mkAnd an absolutely amazing framed cross stitch of the flock.npI couldn’t believe it! It’s our flock (and in the order they joined the family). The detail is amazing (Emmy’s one white cheek, the spot-on colors). And I teared up when I saw the little halos on Dewey and Gordie – and Gordie’s gold star. I’m going to treasure this forever. npcA thousand thank yous for this amazing gift. Love to you and your flock!
