Kinnick's crop is empty this morning. He's 3.77 lbs. He hasn't had any food since the attack. Should I start him on scrambled eggs or chick crumbles? Or would regular pellets be ok?
Very alert today, he was standing up straight and chatty with me. He had overturned his water cup and was perched on top, so I'm going to try to get a roost for him. There are feather casings all over (he's having his juvie molt) so he's been preening also.
His wound looks ok to me, I'm not sure. The blukote tends to dry the wound, so it feels like there's a hard shell layer on top. Does that make sense? I'm not sure if this makes the healing process faster or slower.
That hard shell coating was how my friend's hen appeared also.
