Yesterday my husband needed to go to our local D.I.Y. store. He bought me back a present, this caught his eye as he was about to leave the store.
Isn’t this adorable! such a lovely gift.
This morning I took a dish of fish for the girls and Treacle’s smaller dish with her medicine on top. Now she is getting stronger she didn’t want to sit on my lap and tried to jump down to join the girls. I have to keep changing my tactics! I decided to stand up while holding her under one arm and offering her the dish in front of her beak. The fish was tempting enough for this to work and she ate it all. I will do this from now on.
I then resprayed her with the purple (blue) spray as it had washed off after her bath and my husband said he had seen Bluebell give her bare patch a peck. I don’t want any more infection so will keep her covered until her feathers regrow. Treacle was quite vocal about not liking the spray which shows she is back to herself again.
I am still giving the worming powder on sunflower hearts and the girls quickly cleared them up. I will give maggots again each afternoon for a few more days too. It looks like things are getting back to normal here, thank goodness.
