Oh good!! :dancing:

Goblin started a moult this morning. She should be beautiful in no time now. :D
Glad to hear she is getting better. Molting takes a while with canaries. They don't sing when they are molting either, at least the ones I know don't.
I am glad that this canary landed in your home...:hug8:

Oops, please don't mind my tendency to forget to update threads. :o:

Goblin has almost stopped scratching completely! :dancing:

I've not found any more mites on her or in her water. She seems to be mite free for the time being! I just have to give her one more dose of Ivermectin and then she should be good.

I'm going to apply some Paw Paw Ointment to her feet tomorrow to help the bumpy mite burrows to fall off.

Ok, that sounded really gross.

She broke a blood feather yesterday, but there was no major bleeding and she is recovery very well from it. I think she has calmed down enough now so that I can get a weight for her as well tomorrow.

I'll see if I can snap some photos of her so that I can post them.

So I guess that's all that I can report for now. :)

Bless you for taking on this dear little bird and helping her to a better life. With her mites gone and her nails sorted she is going to feel so much better bless her. Good luck.

Just a quick update on Goblin as she visited the avian vet today. :)

She is doing better and hopefully her scabs and sores will heal with time. Her crop swab and poop test were both fine.

She needs to be treated with more mite stuff once a week for the next three weeks.

We'll assess her condition again from there. :)

Thanks! :D

I forgot to mention that Goblin is still underweight at 23.5g. She could use some fattening up.
