I agree, great photos and poor girl! sad.png

Although, am I the only one that gets a little weirded out or grossed out by the pins? I mean no offense and it's not your bird, it's all of them, I don't know, they just look so funny and weird naked and/or all the pins sticking out, it's almost creepy or scary lmao maybe not quite scary but it just looks so ridiculous and weird, almost gross, but also hilarious at the same time. i don't know what I mean, sorry. They almost look even more like little dinosaurs that way LOL speaking of which, did you know they use chickens to study dinosaurs movement? I saw that somewhere, don't know if they're still doing it. But you know how they put the little white movement dots on people and all sorts of things and a computer records it/it shows up as dots on the screen and shows movement or whatever? Well they did that with chickens lol I forget if they put the dots on or some other contraption, maybe just watched. And ACTUALLY. I think they may have attached a tail to see how they move with it LOL either way, I thought it was pretty cool they used chickens to study that but supposedly chickens are like the closest related to dinosaurs. Most birds are but there's something about chickens.

Lavender is looking SOOO much better! Her feathers still have some growing to do, but she's no longer half-naked and looking like she got into a fight.

Sometimes the size of our standards. I try to give her everything possible to have her plumage come back. Nothing works!

 

Congratulations to the winners and thank you everyone who entered! :woot
