    This effort was for Vasp and other members who have been asking about DoveWear Diapers. Finally got a handle on fitting these little guys. It is much like PGWear, but a lot smaller! The dove's smaller physical make up needed consideration. This little gal is rehabbing inhouse and has been the...

    My beloved ringneck Yodi (2 years old) has been very sick since March, 26. He started off by not eating much and not yodling and staying in his cage during time out. I keep him in a cage unless I can supevise him cause he attacks the pigeons and they attack back. I gave him colloidal silver and...

    Hi everyone. I came home yesterday to find my young male white homer a bloody mess. I took him to the vet for x-rays, etc. He has a completely broken wing and the bullet went in a line through from his wing to his chest and punctured his crop so that seeds are actually coming out from the wound...

    Not sure where to begin on this, or if I should post this, but I think I am going to have to make some new arrangements regarding the housing of my birds.

    Today I decided to use the self-clean feature of my oven for the first time since we moved into this house. About 5 minutes into it, I decided, just to be on the safe side, to put all the birds, including Floyd, outside for the afternoon. It was sunny and 70 degrees, so a good day for them to...
