    During the early hours of yesterday my mad little green laughing boy decided to leave the flock. He went quietly and peacefully in his sleep and is going to be missed for a long time.. 

    Anyone who ever visited during little Sidneys' reign cannot fail to forget him, if he didn't like you he would terrorise the life out of you until you left. For such an elderly disabled little fella he sure could move!! 

    i just hope rainbow bridge was ready for him.. 

    Sidney little man go and roost in the highest tree now your feet are pain free and untwisted... and keep all those gone before you safe from the real and imaginary ''friends'', 

    Your infectious laugh is going to missed and already the house is silent without you.. Mikey misses you dreadfully.

    Rest now Sidney in peace and free of pain xx

    shaz & the flock

    My door is always open to birds.... Humans must make an appointment! x_3bc50230

    Even to those who never met him he is a legend!!

    He had come so far with your extra special care and he would never have been able to enjoy those remaining months of his life without your TLC and I know he appreciated all that you did for him!!

    May the legend live on at Rainbow bridge, happy, healthy and pain free.

    Thoughts are with you and the flock Shaz and I hope Mikey is able to find another friend within the flock!!

    R.I.P Sidney you are without a doubt going to be missed. You're contagious laugh never failed to leave me with stomach ache as I couldn't stop laughing! Will miss you trying to sink your beak in my feet if I came to close your cage & the time you hid in the front room & boy did you move when you spotted my hand, lucky I had faster reflexes but i'll give you credit for trying lol.

    Fly free over at rainbow bridge Xx

    Thinking of you Shaz and hoping that Mikey finds a new best friend in the flock. I did wonder if this meant that visiting you without steel toe caps was now a possibility!

    Fly free Sidney, out of pain now. You had a lovely life with Shaz, sadly shorter than anyone would wish, but you can now terrorise everyone at the bridge and giggle to your hearts content.

    Like Jenny I had the pleasure of meeting Sidney, and he enjoyed taking chunks out of my feet and ankles too. You wouldn't believe that a disabled birdy could move soooooo fast!

    Fly free over Rainbow Bridge, little green laughing monster, terrorising all the girls. You are at last pain free and can talk to your imaginary friend behind the toilet to your heart's content. I know Mikey is missing you, but keep a place warm at the Bridge for him. Rest in Peace Sidney xxx
