Birdie had a hard start to her life when she fractured a growth plate in her leg at only a few weeks old. She battled an infection that set in, and tolerated all the veterinary care like a champion. Now she's fully healed and can run like the wind. She's an amazing girl and we couldn't love her more. :) Also, she was named Birdie because she was born on our African Grey parrot's birthday! One of his favourite phrases to say is "birdie birdie bird".
