This last batch of baby birds seem different. Their feathers are full on their wings, chest and belly however, they are bald on the back of the head and on their backs. I see the dad picking at them alot but I don't know if he is the cause or if they are lacking something in their diet or something. Anyone have any ideas? I was going to take the dad out of the cage but he seems to be the one that is feeding them the most. Not sure if the mom with step up or not. I am quite sure that I don't need another decision to make. Do you know what I mean? I hope you are having a good night whatever you are up to. Lisa

Here is a shot of our little patient. She was running after a rabbit or something and ran into a live trap our neighbor had in his back yard. They were chasing whatever it was so hard that she didn't even see the trap door sticking out. Larry said he saw them both run down the neighbors driveway and around the back of his house then heard a loud yelp. He ran over to see what was going on...Maddie came limping around the corner of the neighbors house and when she saw Larry she just stopped and held up her front leg. So he carried her home and tried to see what was wrong. The vet said nothing was broke but they found the puncture spot on her shoulder. She is on an antibiotic and a pain pill. She just lays around when she isn't limping. I just feel so bad for my girl. She had a rough weekend. How was yours? P.s. what do you think of her haircut. lol. She looks so funny laying on allllll the dog beds. I had piled them up to run the sweeper and before I could put everything back in its place she had found her spot. Well, the babies are really growing. Here is the last post I did on them. Their birthday. hehe
This was a shot of one this morning.
Here is the other one and a shot of the mom.
Here they are together. I also have one more baby that looks just like these two in the other cage. I wasn't able to get a good shot of it this morning.
I hope you are all doing well. I spent another evening at the chiropractor. I think the decompression might be helping. Well I am off to finish up our taxes. I just can't believe how behind I am with things this year. I just can't seem to get my act together.
I am going to Berlin, Ohio on wed. with my mom and her best friend. I am pretty sure that is exactly what I need to get my act together.....At least it can't hurt right?. Have fun y'all Lisa
