Fearless toddler

Stephen Squawking is working hard learning how to bird. Unfortunately he is fearless and had a crash landing yesterday. He didnt quite land right and wrenched his foot. Hes at the vet now. X-ray was clean; no fractures. Hes trying to grip with his foot so no suspicion of connective tissue injury. Vet thinks just a bad twist. Hes splinting it for support and is going to watch him for a few hours, but otherwise he should be just fine. The vet, trying to make me feel better, was cracking jokes about matching bum legs. Stevie was brought to him with his other leg injured and hes missing a tiny part of his toe on that foot (another reason hes a rehab failure). This bird. Hes going to turn the rest of my hair grey.

Re: Fearless toddler

Sounds like we are both going through the same trials right now.
Your baby is just fledging, my Merlin while young is just getting the hang of flight because the breeder had him clipped.

Landing always seems to be the hard part to learn. Next to that is managing to fly to the place you want to go and not end up somewhere you can't get out of.

Re: Fearless toddler

He’s got a tiny little cast now. Dr J went with a cast because of his age and wanting to make sure his foot stays well formed and doesn’t curl up. He’s mad at the world now, but happily playing with his toys, so other than flying an perching, he’s not letting it slow him down too much.

Re: Fearless toddler

Steven Squawking has tons of spirit!! Glad there was no break, though pinning is a viable surgical procedure. (don't ask how I know this lol!)

Re: Fearless toddler

Y’all.

I am so in trouble with this bird.

He has figured out how to run in his cast. Send help.

Re: Fearless toddler

How does he get around? Apparently by running. This bird is unstoppable. He's definitely got a huge personality and even bigger spirit.

Re: Fearless toddler

I was wondering the same thing Ms Bea, but then I realized their nothing children cannot overcome, remembering he's just a mere chick in spirit although his body is bigger, I'm sure he will do things in the cast other birds just dream of doing. Best part is the cast will tune him to balance, and orientate him even better.
