Update starting day 14 (two weeks now) and good morning everyone.
Not ready to celebrate just yet, but the day is starting out very well. I awoke early before sunrise (although it's raining and really is no sunshine). Started the coffee brewing and still groggy myself I let all the ducks and Blackfoot out into their pen. Then let Diamond out of her confinement area while I went to prepare her morning meal. While stirring up the fresh batch of baby food I witnessed her at the hanging feeder and it appeared (not really sure) that she took a few bites. Whether or not she did, this was the first time I have seen her even take an interest in solid food.
I took out her baby formula and wormer and tubed her with only 52ml. I meant to do more but I was still sleepy and am in a lot of pain today that I spaced out and even forgot to add the antibiotic. She put up a fight but I did get the tube into her. A couple of times while I was in the process of pushing the food through she held perfectly still and her eyelids were not blinking... I thought the worst. I spoke to her and asked if she was ok then she started squirming a little. whew, she had me scared for a moment. She did that twice. Once I removed the tube she was all too happy to get away from me.
Since she showed a small interest in the regular feed and was trying to forage through the straw I decided to try a treat (so far she had been disinterested in any treats). I chopped up a large handful of iceberg lettuce and put it into a small bowl. She dug right in. She is eating it slowly - a bite here and a bite there. She has already eaten half of it approx. 1/2 cups worth. I made some rice last night and set some aside. I put a small container of that out there too but she has not touched it.
But I am happy to see that she is willing to eat something solid.
