    Too cute!! Looks to me like a little fid from an island such as Cuba, or the Dominican Republican. Anyone know what it might be??

    Veterinarian care is expensive so ask yourself the
    following questions. If I pay $25.00 for a parakeet and he becomes ill,
    will I pay $100.00 or more for a visit to the Vet? Am I then willing to pay even
    more for my bird's treatment? If the
    answer is NO, then
    PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE A BIRD!!

    Yep it's a Lilac-breasted roller.

    I had a friend who use to breed these birds. They always did well on the show bench. She won at the National Cage Bird Show one year with these birds. They don't move around much and she said they would walk a mile for scrabled eggs in the morning!
