Re: Bottom of the cage (but I'm thinking hormones)

Good idea, just to be sure...Especially if she's been messing with her feathers in that area; I know she's a former plucker, but you never know...That Goffin I had the special moment with laid an egg a week or two later, so there ya go...

Re: Bottom of the cage (but I'm thinking hormones)

Stomach/abdomen etc felt fine to the vet (not egg bound)
Feather is looking better.
Toenails are clipped.
Skin swab test was negative for any yeast etc (under microscope)
Fecal gram stain was negative for any nastiness.



I asked them to do a throat swab and that showed some gram negative bacteria (small amount) so we are starting her on a 7-day course of antibiotics and going back for a follow-up swab in 2 weeks...
One dang thing after another lol

Re: Bottom of the cage (but I'm thinking hormones)

I feel your pain...Bowie's beak puncture has to be filled-in with acrylic after the wound inside it completely heals, but it has to be filled-in in steps because of how it's cracked...We're looking at several trips where he has to be put under with Iso gas...I'm not happy about it, he's not happy about it, and now Dylan, my Ringneck Dove, has something weird going on with the skin on his feet and his legs. So he's going with me on Tuesday when I take Bowie...uhg...
