This is horrible for the bird. I had an African gray and they form very close bonds with specific people. If that bird survives this I will be surprised. They mourn the loss of family and can become very sick. I’ve watched it with other birds when I would help train birds. They go through a depression for sure. Birds are very much like little kids. Especially parrots, and African grays are so smart. I’m so sad for the family and Gabby. I hope Gabby is doing okay.

It was heartbreaking to go to Wertz Brothers on their last day in business and instead of celebrations, they were all mourning the loss of Gabby. She had been with the family for 24 years. I hope we are able to help them get her back. Thank you all for spreading the word.

These frikin birds are expensive. Earlier this year, I was going to get one as a pet and I was willing to spend like $1k.

They’re about $3k to $5k

I saw this on their IG stories and if you know the shop then you know how egregious it is that someone stole their bird and this week of all weeks. Just absolutely heartbreaking.

OMG!! She is so adorable. She would talk to us while we were shopping. They had her for 24 years. I hope their family member is returned.
