Checking out the neighborhood
- Real Name
Thanks everyone!! Aww I’m glad she’s a special girl. She escaped after her owner passed and was in the wild for nearly a week before being recaptured. The vet gave her the all clear, but they didn’t mention her scaliness which is odd, but I’ll be sure to treat her. Her band isn’t tight and I’m able to move it, I think her year is 2018 (it has 18 on it which is what I presume that means) so she’s around 3-ish!A mosaic canary! And a nice one. Great find. I’ve been looking for a mosaic hen for 6 months with no luck.
She does have scaly feet, I believe it’s in her beak too, up around the nares. Good call.
She’s banded; what year does the band say?
Edit: speaking of the band - is hers tight??
I was asking the age because older birds do have some scales— not like that! But someone is bound to say it eventually... anyway 3 is not old so please do treat for it.
What a harrowing experience! I’m glad she’s safe with you now.
Thanks guys!! Yes she’s getting a forever home with me she’s called Sunshine (Sunny) and I’m already totally in love with her chirping. She’s in the same room as my solo budgie (her cagemate passed away not long ago but she seems happier on her own than sharing), so they can see and hear each other. Do you think I should get Sunny a cagemate or will she be ok? I’ve never kept a canary before and read conflicting things online. I also don’t 100% know she’s a female, it’s just assumed by her behaviour.Sounds like she's had quite the adventure - hopefully enough to last a lifetime & she can settle in at your home.
