I am going to MISS this little bird. I raised her from a tiny pink ball of fluff and I already miss hearing her sing with me.
When I came home home last night I think she was still ok, I heard her squawk when I walked in. At some point a while later I went to let her out to sit by me she was obviously not well. I stayed by her cage for a while, and also tried to find on line some information about what could be her condition. IN the morning (which was not so far off -- I think I only slept about 4 hours) it was clear that I needed to find somewhere to take her to let her finally rest. I called many different vets and wound up at the usual one I take my felines to. "We dont care for chickens" Well they took a look at her and said the doc would be able to care for her in between surgeries. I was still in my car just leaving the parking lot (had been talking to mother--how tiring!) when they called back and said she is ready.
I can't yet believe that she wont be sitting on the back of my chair anymore. I held her next to my cheek, then let her sit back in the carrier and she pecked at my hands, feisty to the end!
