I still hate to take pictures of her. Kitty is still pretty ratty looking although her feathers are shiny there are gaps and grey fuzzies showing through. She has chewed on her left side and leg and it looks pretty bad. The Dr. said to wait a few months and it will probably fill in after the hormonal season is over. (New information for me) They only have left side ovaducts and ovaries and he has bird clients who chew off their entire feather cover on the left side during the months of Dec. through April then become just fine. It's more noticeable in budgies, because their reproductive organs swell more (and bother them more) relative to their size.

Happy to read you're making progress with Kitty.

Even if you choose not to post them here, periodic photos are a great diagnostic tool to track changes over time.
