Baldy-man
« on: February 25, 2014, 11:27:51 PM »

Good news! Birdy-man (recently known as baldy-man) has 2 pin feathers on his massive bald patch on his head!

I have pun2 toys over the corners he used to chicken scratch in so I think I was right in thinking it's where he rubs his head while scratching
This is good news.

Massive relief to see this. Been a long time now!

How long would a head feather take to grow? It seems to be growing daily at minute!

Thanks

That's great news Jamie :yahoo:
The feathers grow at a alarming rate once started
Make sure you give him showers as new feathers can make em uncomfortable x

I'm  spraying him with the water/aloe mix I purchased from the vets but have no luck with him in the shower anymore :( he isn't having any of it and I end up bleeding when I try mwahaha.

He doesn't even like being sprayed anymore. He fluffs up and dives at the cage!

I struggle to spray Yvie, she sticks her beak right up to the nozzle & wants to drink it, then runs away to avoid the spray, just persevere, he'll at least get a bit wet!

That's good Jamie, glad to hear his bald patch is growing back. the strategically placed toy obviously done the trick :) The new feathers don't take long to grow at all not when u consdider that a full big flight feather only takes around 6 weeks.
