Ohhhhhh - he's beautiful!!!!
Whoops, sorry, fixed that.What a cutie. Put a note on your post that the "Squeak Squeak Squeak" is a YouTube video......I found out by accident........LOL
Herbert is what I would call a Blue Check.....
LOL...Having enough canker med for all the SF Pigeons is a good thing. Soon you will have members knocking at your door for some. It's hard to find when you need it in a hurry. Dosing one time though...if you mean a one day treatment...won't do the job. I can't think of any one time treatment that works.Charis - I have enough Metronidazole to medicate half the pigeons in San Francisco. (I had to buy it dry, and ended up with 20g.) I've already dosed Herbert once, and now that I am certain he's stable and eating and pooping vigorously, I'll treat again.
I had nearly no luck at all with the Kaytee. what a mess. I've been feeding lots of defrosted peas/corn/carrot chunks (hey, they were in the mix of frozen veggies, and Herbert doesn't complain) and more and more pinches of seeds. We're working on picking up seeds (he's not too coordinated at this yet.) I've tossed in some bits of pickstone blocks for him to nibble at, too.
He's ridiculously calm and unafraid of me, and is hanging out with me while I sew in the living room, chill and hunkered down on a couch cushion after a feeding, all sleepyeyed. How do I tell when it's time to let him go into a flock? :/ I mean, I worry about the fact that food's going to be hard to find, etc etc. What do other baby rehabbers feel about this stage?
