    Ben and Jerry no more! LOL

    I bought a baby Yellow Naped Amazon and he's still being hand fed. First baby I am unable to hand feed.
    I decided to name him Ben.

    So, the bird store owner's wife Debbi gives names to the babies she hand feeds at home before they are ready to go to the store.
    When she found out that I named my bird Ben, she named Ben's clutch mate Jerry.

    Well, Jerry has already been sold and is still being hand fed by Jeff the store owner. Jerry's family lives over 100 miles away and they bought him by phone. Happens a lot because so many people trust Jeff.

    Anyway, I took my Ben home for an hour (I live 2 blocks from Jeff's store). When I got back, Jeff looked absolutely wild-eyed!!
    When I walked in the store he said to me, 'You will NEVER guess in a MILLION YEARS what just HAPPENED!! NEVER!!'

    He said that the owners of Ben's brother called and told Jeff they want him to do a DNA sexing test on their bird. Jeff told them that he needs to put a name on the test submission for identification purposes. He asked them if they had chosen a name for their bird. They said they did.

    Would you believe!!?!! They named their bird BEN!

    Jeff said that in the over 40 years he's been in the bird business he had never met anyone who had named a bird Ben.
    Now, two clutch mates are named Ben. He said he got goosebumps. He was literally in shock when I went back to the store with my Ben.

    Isn't that crazy? Wow! I'm blown away by this.

    That is crazy! How funny because Ben is not a common name for a bird at all.

    I think it would be awesome if the person who bought the second Ben would participate in TailFeathers. That would not only make my day, it would be a dream come true!

    I'm wondering if more people will start naming their birds Ben. Maybe it's gonna start a trend.
