He will be getting orders, but we donít know to where yet. Basically they just gave us a 6 month window of time.

He was at 48, but spiked up to 449 with a dextrose drip in the ambulance. After multiple long fasts they were never able to get it to drop below 80 at the hospital.

Re: Aviary Life

Lewis would be ok for the birds, we would just need additional winterization for the aviary Its pretty high up on our list of the places we WANT to go

That's wonderful news. I'm happy to hear this.
Praying it was just a fluke and you all will never have to experience this again.

Re: Aviary Life

I recently weaned a clutch of 4 tiels abs kept 1 back for breeding. The clutch weaned almost 2 weeks ago! The other babies all went to their new homes this past week.

The as-of-yet-unnamed baby started quietly begging last night. I asked her why, and gave her some millet and she stopped. This morning she was at it again so I offered formula; she took a whole feeding! Then again this afternoon!

Now, I abundance wean. So when I say the babies weaned, I mean they refused formula completely 2 times a day for 5 days in a row, so really this girl hadnít had a feeding in almost 3 weeks! So we are off to the vet tomorrow to check for infection

Re: Aviary Life

Iím so spoiled; most of my flock sleeps (or at least is quiet) well past sunrise. I have ONE exception; Pikachu the cockatiel. Heís outside and he flirts with my 92 year old neighbor when she goes out into her yard in the early morning. Itís 6:45, sun will be rising any minute, his song is beautiful and no louder than the wild birds, and Iím usually up by now anyway.

But today I havenít been to sleep yet (darn pregnancy insomnia), and I was just thinking that his song is the sweetest yet most infuriating thing I have ever heard! My aviary is directly outside my bedroom window; I wanted the birds closer to my window than to the property line so I would be the one to hear them the loudest but today Iím regretting it lol.
