By the way, her right eye is for sure blind, (confirmed by the vet) the other is good though! It has some fibrous cell on the actual eyeball from the pox, but it seems to be reducing! This was last week and there’s less white/cloudy areas so I think it’s regenerating. The eye drop antibiotics really saved her sight, because her whole eye was milky/blue green until we used them!Poor little thing she certainly has been through a hell of a lot is she drinking okay ? Have you thought what her future is going to be when she's fully mature are you going to keep her or try and release her back to the wild?i know it can be very tricky when you've been hand rearing such a young Pigeon for such a long length of time to return them back to nature it might be a very good idea to have a word with Marina b regarding this when you feel the time is right the lady is so knowledgeable. I made the decision to make a life time commitment to Peter after researching what I should consider about his future I quickly learnt that it's not so easy just to release them back to nature they learn so much from their parents in their early days regarding how to survive. And I'm sure there must be a very strong bond between the two of you by now as well which is a wonderful thing . Having said that I'm not at all sure if things might be slightly different with wood pigeons as Peter is a feral and feral pigeons are semi domesticated making them very comfortable around people . How is her right eye looking any improvement ?
Thanks John! I understood that to mean exactly what you clarified. I’m using these supplements with her as well as b12 and milk thistle which aren’t pictured! The plan is to load her up with everything she needs to recover and grow big and strong!!yes, thats nystatin, treats fungi.
I'll say it again: Good Job!
View attachment 96359 Xena is looking so pretty and fluffy at the moment? I’m trying to teach her to eat but she just can’t seem to figure it out, she pecks but never swallows! She just plays with them. Maybe when she gets a bit bigger she’ll want to eat seeds instead of have a party with them 😂😂 - but all in all? She’s doing so well! Preening alllll day long, and today she took her first solo flight across the room, when I was out getting firewood. I left her in one spot and came back to her the opposite side of the room so she not only managed to fly, but land! Yay!
She's really starting to look like a proper little wood pigeon nowIsn't she beautiful 👍🏻
Every new picture we see of her there is a significant change so wonderful to see her thriving 382 g wow 👍🏻🙂
So Xena has the nystatin last night, this morning and tonight. I always give it 45 mins before her meal. Tonight was the first time she hasn’t retched (yet)... fingers crossed it’s starting to clear up! How will I know if it should be 5 or 7 days Marina?Given for 5 to 7 days, sometimes up to 10 days. Let us know if there's an improvement after a couple of days. Also give twice a day on an empty crop. Wait half an hour before feeding or drinking.
