Awww man, poor chico! I've been doing studying, going through old copies of bird talk. Have copies that go back to when bird talk first started. And researched net on studies. Science daily is a good site where you can learn up to date studies and research on anything from all major universities.Really good to read Poppers is doing so well now! What a great weight gain!! It's wonderful to see her upright. Sadly Chico who had a stroke is left with a very tilted head.
Yea, I add a bit of mango baby food to it. Or carrot juice.Have you thought about adding something tasty to the nasty meds. They added pina colada to the nasty anti botic he had to take one time and it made it easier to get him to take it because at least it tasted OK to him. Of course he fully trusted me and I'd just paste his face against the bars and squeeze it in real quick if he was being obstinate. He usually wouldn't bite me and quickly forgave me. Lurch would have tore me up, so he probably would have been towled, Dobby probably would be like Nerd, he's pretty laid-back and gentle.
Oh yea, I got that... Tried softening (slightly steamed veggies, sweet potato, cooked and mashed lentils, a piece of ap ple....man she liked that... Ate slow but she managed. She is nibbling a little seed, not much, but it's still early.YAY Poppers you go girl!!! Michael you know that you may have go back to regular food slowly right. Maybe a feeding of emeraid then bite size bits of her normal diet. If she gets pellets you may have to soften them first with a little boiled water and letting them sit and soften. Even if she is recognizing food she will need to transition to her normal diet.
That's good, how is nerd doing now? some birds it's much easier to syringe, others you have to battle with them...lol.Well if they're sick and fighting I'd put it in gently so as not to aspirate, but Nerd generally was not super sick and seemed to swallow it down quickly. Now the very last time he was very sick and he did have issues as he was super weak and about to leave me
Awww, sorry to here that. I lost my share of birds. Mainly from old age. Sparky was the last to go this past christmas. He was in mid 50's.He left us just before Xmas 2009 after 31 happy years together to join his brother Ferd over the bridge. I now have Dobby, another Maxi Pionus just like Nerd, and had Lurch right after Nerd left us but he escaped due to a dumb mistake a few years ago and just hope a good family found him. Dobby is very happy ruling his kingdom here and my sister is his chosen one.
Does any of the vendors here sell gram scales?? Mine is going to heck! It's old and time for replacement.!
Walmart sells a good variety of gram/ounce scales and they are very reasonable. I have a perch on mine ,20 years old, and wish I didn't. Hard to weigh anything but a bird.
I didn't know they made a power form of that.so glad she's doing well. The oddness of her going to your wife may again change as she gets better and returns to herself a bit and her brain retrains itself. Add a bit of pomegranate powder to your cc. Mine love it like that.
Oh yes, just look for anything freeze dried powder...I didn't know they made a power form of that.
