A Gorgeous violet male budgie, bright dark eyes that when gazed upon you could see his spirit. He had it all, sweetness, charm, love, and the want to be someones friend. unfortunately I only knew buck for 10 minutes. You see he was a Petco budgie, kept in an unlit glass cage with a dozen or so other budgies. He was presumably the lowest in the flock and disposable to not only one of the other budgies, but also the Petco staff. He layed in the bottom of the cage for possibly a half hour being mauled to death by another male. Near death, the Petco staff couldn't have cared any less for him as they took nearly ten minutes to come to his aid, mean while the other male was still on his back biting him, with several children watching as Buck was being attacked. After an arguement with the clerk I purchased Buck hoping to at least give him comfort in his death. He died shortly there after.

Budgies aren't dispoable they require care and compassion. Buck didn't have to die like this.
Petco has been informed of the conditions and lack of care these birds are getting.
