Peatie is on a distinguished road
Thumbs up Up date on Peatie

Well, Happy New Year to everyone! I just wanted to let you know Peatie is still hanging in there. I was so excited yesterday when I went to visit him at my Dads and he began to sing a sweet little song like he use to. That made me so happy to hear. He also is eating and drinking more and eating his fruit and veggie treats. He sleeps real close to his mirror like he use to and sometimes his bell. The only thing I see that is strange is his neck feathers are dirty but I have seen him cleaning them but with out much success. His beak is fine so I'm not sure what this is all about. I feel like taking him out and washing his neck with a warm cloth, you think that would be okay?

Happy New Year!

I'm glad Peatie is eating and even singing a bit.
Is Peatie comfortable being handled or does it stress him out?
If he's happy being handled then you can try washing his neck feathers gently and carefully.
Otherwise, I wouldn't put him through the trauma at his age.

Peatie is not real happy when I have to catch him to trim his nails but it doesn't seem to stress him. I should probably wait to clean him until it's time to trim and then give him a little sponge bath?

You could also try a spray bath. Plain (warm) water in a sprayer that has never had anything but water in it. Spray above Peatie or even up into the air so that the water falls on him gently. It makes quite a mess, so do it right before you change the paper. If he's not use to it, the sight and sound of the spray might initially spook him, so you might have to try it more than once before he decides that it's a good thing.

Well, this is not a good thing I'm afraid. Yesterday I decided it was time to trim Peaties nails and clean his face. He did great with me catching him and holding him which was a relief, but while I was cleaning his face I noticed what looked like a seed stuck to his face and tried to wipe it off, turns out it's some kind of growth! It wasn't there a couple days ago so I don't know what to make of it. So I will be taking him in for a check on this. He is eating and drinking regularly and his poop is fine so it maybe that at 12 he is starting to show his age. His eyes are not as bright as they use to be but he seems happy other than that.

Vickie,

Please be sure to let us know what you find out at the Avian Vet regarding the growth on Peatie's face.
I'm wondering if perhaps he has scaly mites?

Best wishes!
Deborah

Today is a very sad one. I had to make funeral arrangements today for My sweet Peatie :*( I found him at the bottom of his cage this morning not able to get around but trying to eat some seed off the bottom. He passed shortly after that. My heart breaks but I know he is with my Mom now and happy again. It's so hard to lose these little sweet babies. Turns out he didn't have a growth just a stuck seed on his face. He was 12 years old and his little body just gave up.

So sorry for your loss, what a blessing to have had him for 12 years. He is in good company with your mom now, fly high sweet boy.

My sympathy for your loss of sweet Peatie.
How wonderful that he was able to enjoy 12 years!
If you'd like to make a tribute or memorial thread for Peatie, you can do so in the "In Memory" section of the forum.
