Default Budgie Blue

I have not been on for a long while.
B.B's story or at least some of it can be found here.
https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...dgie-blue.html

So thought it time to do an update.
I have moved and now have a bird room and an aviary.
B.B. is doing great, but I did have a problem or at least she did.

PLEASE NOTE WARNING!!!

I run a mixed flock. This is not something to take lightly. Problems can cause the demise of a bird.
I have a Sun Conure in and she had been allowed to be with the other birds.
Since Christmas she had been well behaved. For some reason this changed.
Maybe she feels more comfortable now and has started to exert her powers.
Stroppy rat. Anyway I came home to find B.B. had a bloody beak. I went into panic mode and grabbed her to look at what the damage was. I spent a bit of time cleaning her up so I could see. That first day I was concerned that if the beak was too bad she would not be able to eat. I kept an eye on her weight and kept her in the bird room where i could also watch her poohs. First two days she dropped weight, then I see her eating. Day three she had lost a bit more weight. It then occurred to me she maybe missing being with the flock so let her back out with them. Next day I got this photo of her.
She is scratching her head on the branch. You can also see the damage to her beak. It could of been so much worse. Beaks do get ripped off. Luck was on her side and it seems to me Poppy just gave her beak a squeeze.
Next day I see Poppy go up against Dexter and that was that. She now is in the bird room until I figure out what to do with her. This could be rehoming, but not what I want for her. She came in because of her screaming, as Sun Conures tend to do when they are not getting what they want. In her case her human company. And why they tend to get moved around once they start.


She sure looks happy enough back in there. And I did see here laying on a cross beam, where she rolled over on her back so that she could have a scratch with her locked up feet. A reminder of how she looked when I took her in.

I'm very glad that Budgie Blue was not injured more severely and wish her all the best for a full and speedy recovery.

I hope she'll recover quickly. Be sure towash off the blood and treat the wounds to hold off infections. Let it be warm where she is, give her plenty of food and water. It might be preferable to give her liquid food orally. This is to make sure her body can use all of its energy on healing up. Letting her sleep lots is important too. I hope it won't happen again.

Thanks!
B.B. has recovered so well and in such short time.
I was warned that this could happen, so I have no excuse.
Your comment that it could of been so much worse is a fact and I know that.
It won't happen again. Poppy is not going back with the flock.
I am working with her needs. and keeping her in the bird room.
And she has company in there for now, as I have a Cockatiel come in that has a few social issues. Attacking and biting. But very tame at the same time.

This is totally off topic, but I just love how she's totes getting her scratch on in that pic! She was enjoying the heck out of that scratch. Love pics of birds doing something that makes them so clearly happy.

Cool.
You should of seen her the other day. laying on one of the frames.
On her back rolled over so she could scratch with her bad feet.
She is such a darling for a handicapped Fid. Falls or gets pushed off perches all the time.
And is so good at recovering.
We were in the aviary a week or so ago. And she slipped off a branch, recovered failed to get stable and fell off again. The third time she caught the branch with her beak and just hung there for a few seconds, before giving it away and flying off.
I watch her all the time to make sure she does not get sores on the back of her legs where they are used by her to perch.
Her pictures are here

This is an early photo back when she was sized by me. She came in so I could clip her nails, but when I see her nare blocked, talked to owner who would not take her to the vets, I knew she needed help and I was not going to let her go back to them.
