    I am a shallow person, looks are important to me, I like a pretty bird! Today I got 2 birds from Mickacoo. When I opened the box I first panicked thinking they made a mistake and sent a dove. Pip a female king is very small, refine and graceful, snow white. Her mate Disco took my breath away...

    Hello- MickaCoo needs help finding good homes for unreturnable racers. I've got a young bird that should be fine when his cut flights regrow but that his owner doesn't want. There's an unbanded white homer with a wing injury in a shelter on the waiting list to get into MickaCoo- likely will...
