    Bobby's last broken feather on one side has had a little blood now and then, and speaking to the birdline vet from Cheshire today seems that this last feather has to come out too. Also noticed a tiny bit of blood on him tonight so he's going in. He won't like it, but better than him bleeding out. He's only tiny. 80g so a few drops of blood to him is important. 

    And I really don't want to have him start feeling under the weather or getting weak or sick. 


    Vets it is, will keep you posted. 


    As for his progress. The clicker training is working really well, and he flies/hops on me now from a distance.  with or without a treat waiting

    It's good to hear he's making progress with the training and also that you care so much about him to ensure that he's in top health. They do make us worry but they are worth it

    Let us know how the vets visit goes x

    I agree with you, Helen. Thanks for the reply.


    Seeing as he'd had two feathers pulled I was kinda reluctant to get it done, hoping it will be okay, but it seems it might never stop till it moults. Even if I pack it, he'll pick it out. And constant bits of blood here and there aren't good for him, or my heart. Worrying if it's too much. They replace it quick, and it clots quick. But .... forever going to be a worry for him and me I think. 


    Will let you know how he does and what the vet says.
