Had to share this of Penny eating her greens. She eats her veggies, but has only recently started eating the leafy stuff so it makes me so happy! This is bagged slaw I shared




LOL! CUTE-- reminds me of an old lady at a church picnic eating coleslaw or something (don't get me wrong, I have no issue with coleslaw, I just say this based on her dainty consumption and what I know already lol)
Penny is totally an old lady bird! Ha! She is the also the only one i have to cut stuff up for, she is dainty. The others attack the veggies, haul them around climb on them, walk around with veggies mess stuck in their faces and beak lol

Re: Penny is sick, I've been holding back making a thread

Doxycycline continues.......
Penny 111
Pikachu 116
Ta-dah 84
Orbit 95

Orbit has taken until today to get over me clipping his nail for DNA test on Friday. . Giving him a cuddle right now

Pikachu took a bath, its kinda chilly. So I drape my sweater over him. He ( soon DNA test will get results) puts up with his silly mum.

Re: Penny is sick, I've been holding back making a thread

Well my mind is blown!!! I have all girls!! Girls power flock!!! ( parakeets are boys)

Pikachu is a shock, Neptune didn't like, Pikachu is courted Penny..... I'd believe hermaphrodite over a true female. My vet us surprise to, but knows parrots are tricky as are their pair bonds. Even in the wild with free mate choice same sex pair bonds happen..


I'm so shocked I will re test Pikachu..but 99% accuracy i will hsve to just reset my brain into thinking girl


Oh all my beautiful girls!!!@ we will have a girl party and extra girly treats!!
trying to think of a new name for Orbit..

And, the why I have given-up guess the sex of Parrots! Short of laying eggs, DNA is the best way to go.

Blue Boy is the rescues Budgie, right? The one you found recently while searching for Neptune? How is he doing?

Thank you, they are wonderful! All but 2 started out as someonelse's birds !! I'm a big believer in taking on a re home or a true rescue, they are every bit as loving!!!

I asked Pikachu/Peekaboo are you a girl bird or are you a boy bird?

The answer was pure wisdom! " I am a good bird!!"

So awesome! Even more so because he doesn't talk very often...

Re: Penny is sick, I've been holding back making a thread

Ok!!! I gotta dig back. Doxycycline treatment may stop today!!!!!!!!!

I'm talking to vet, maximum allowed treatment is 60 days, she kinda wants me to go to 60 days. We are talking to see if I can set the budgies free, but keep treatment in water....

We have hut 45 days tho yippee!!! Its just because this has been so hard, with relapses that she want to stretch to the safety margin of 60 gosh darn days! She is the best vet ever so will do it. Darn it i thought today was the day!!

Budgies, especially typhoid Blue Boy, will stay locked up till 24th. Doxycycline treatment continues...........
Deep cleaning. Changed filter on AC . Through out filter from vacuum and have new one ready to go. Wipes cage bars with dilute bleach, bird are of course out and windows open

Recap , treatment is for psittacosis, or i just call chlamydia. Budgie rescue from the wild brought in wild type chlamydia strain that was extra deadly. Penny broke first and almost died. I still can't believe we saved her!!@ she stopped eating has to be fed bsby burd formula by hsnd for 10 days!! Has to have a heat panel, and of course antibiotics were started ASAP. The rest of flock seemed fine, but started loosing weight. They were started on antibiotics, do to issues Ta-dah wasn't getting full treatment and aldo got very very sick....Cloudy lost nearly 25% of his body weight,
so was also very very sick !!!! Phoebe sermed to only have a mild case.
Knowing their normal weight, weight checks every day while sick, really paid off in helping us best this. Birds hide being sick!!! Some of my birds the only symptom was weight loss!!!! And while all had the same infection , tge ones with symptoms were different.
Past pages may hsve different burd names. I DNA checked my last 2 and found they were girls, so I changed names.
