David said I should post how I met Bigboy, so here is the story. It was a very long time ago. I miss that little feathered puff of a bird so much.
When I got Bigboy, I went to a pet store that had called me when they got new P'let babies in. They were all in a cage together. There was one that had different coloring. Of course my eye went to that one first because it stood out from the crowd. The store owner got him out for me to hold and it took a chunck out of my thumb. Oops. The owner said maybe we should try another. He reached his hand in the cage and came up with Bigboy. When he handed him to me, Bigboy looked right in my eye and turned his head for a little scritch. The owner put him in a little "travel" cage and Bigboy hung on the bars to be right near me. Where I went he went! I think the special ones are truly special and they pick whom they want to be with. He had 1 feather sticking up from the top of his head. My husband said lets name him Curly. But I said this Bigboy is coming home with us and we'll figure out a name later. But he was a Bigboy in every sense of the word. The name just fit him all the way around, so the name stuck.
