Red face Re: Sunny and Polita

We noticed yesterday that someone had been "over zealously preening" little Jackie on the top of his head. Today the laceration was a bit worse. We put Sunny in a separate cage from Polita and the boys. Neither parent is too happy about the new living arrangements; there was even blood shed in the transfer (Merlin's). Hopefully Jack's head will heal. If not, we'll be taking Polita out also and Merlin and I will start feeding the boys ourselves. Anyone have any comments about this? it is all very new to us.

Jackie's wound

We checked on little Jackie this AM and his head wound is better today. Sunny has been out of the nest for a day now. Merlin and I are reasonably sure that it was he who was doing the damage. Sunny is in a snit about being separated from the rest but he will get over it, I'm sure. He just can't be trusted at this point and must be separated from the chicks.

Yep, I have a comment, hand feeding is one of those things that you must make certain that you absolutely know how to do 100% without any doubt! So many bad things can happen from people with the greatest of intentions please have someone show you how to do it if you are unsure how to ...

Glad to hear that the two little ones are OK ... would like some new pictures though ... tell Merlin to get on that!

Re: Sunny and Polita

Little Jackie seems to be losing more feathers on his head. ??? I've taken the nesting box out of the cage with Polita and we are going to start feeding both chicks by hand. I went to the pet store and bo't formula and a hand feeder. I haven't attempted to feed them yet. I must say, I'm quite intimidated. Any suggestions or advice is most welcome. Help!! New pix soon.

Re: Sunny and Polita

I'd have suggestion... except its much more than a suggestion, more of a demand in seconding what Tex said: if you do not have experience and/or you are not completely comfortable with it DO NOT feed them yourself. Go to a vet, breeder, or experienced pet store employee for help.

Good luck, I hope all goes well, but please do not try it yourself without help.

Re: Sunny and Polita

I went to the pet store and spoke to the bird specialist there. I got advice, a feeding syringe and some powdered birdie pablum. Merlin has given the boys several feedings and they seem to like the stuff and downed it all. Merlin also researched hand feeding online. We have weighed the boys and their food, boiled water and sterilized equipment. So far, so good. I put antibiotic ointment on Jackie's wound and it is looking better. He isn't nearly as feisty and active as Bobby, tho, and we are hoping that he becomes more energetic with less aggressive treatment. Thanks for all the asked-for advice. I pay scant attention to demands. The latest pix.
