Molly is the only survivor of a clutch of three. My guess she got upset I wasn’t there and rubbed her head and beak raw. She’s a lot better this morning, her snood is still there, but I have to keep her beak clean as she managed to crack it on the cage bars. A bird cage is not an apporiate brooder. Despite that, i had to choose between her feed, medication, etc. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to acquire more chicks of any species so I’ll likely have to ‘fill in the blanks’.
I added a photo of little Molly Blu Wobbles.
Raising a baby turkey is one of the hardest types I’ve done yet.
