    Ok, ok, not actually the cakes you eat, the Caiques you would quite consider eating after being baked in a pie..... I was bitten almost two weeks ago, and what a bloody mess its made! Ive tried colloidal silver, aloe vera, savlon, and its still infected and very very painful!Ive never reacted to a bite like this before, and GOD does it hurt!!!!

    Ha! I still stand by that remark, but I now have to add.... Yesterday I noticed a black bit. I thought it was a blood blister, so tonight I tried squeezing it (Im one of those people who cant leave well alone) and nothing happened....so then I decided to gouge a little with a knife....After a bit of manipulation, OUT POPPED A 4 MILLIMETRE BIT OF BEAK!No wonder its been so bloody sore! At least Tipsys bit of overgrowth has come off, albeit INTO MY FINGER!

    Hol,

    You really ought to get some antibiotics for that - you wouldn't want it to become gangrenous or give you spreading cellulitis.

    Its fine now the beak has been removed! The soreness has gone down, I can actually touch it now without wincing. I can now add to the things to do before I die " have a beak imbedded for over a week"...the fact that the bird wasnt attached is irrelevent!But thank you for the concern Helen!(Take note Rick..I dont whinge for no reason!)

    And there was me assuming that it was a bit of Jasper until I finished reading the thread! I was going to have words with you about what you had done to him, and go and give him a cuddle to make up for it!!
