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.
