She is also ravenous for any solid pellets and still won't eat mushy foods but I am apprehensive about giving solid pellets to her still since there hasn't been a morning yet that her crop is empty. Maybe tomorrow will be the day?! I sure hope so!
She's going stir crazy being caged up most of the time! She does enjoy her walks around the kitchen when I'm cooking and her twice daily snuggle sessions but those things are nothing compared to being with her flock, I'm sure! I took her to a big mirror today and she stood in front of it purring at herself and fell asleep against it. Poor thing just wants a friend!
Awww, that sound so cute & sad with the mirror.
Since she is losing weight, but drinking fine, I would let her have small amounts of pellets, if thats what she will eat. She needs a boost in nutrition and her pellets are balanced. The grit she is eating should help grind up some of the food. How late at night is her last feeding?
Does she go to "bed" the same time she would normally if she was in the coop, or is she in a lighted area at night?
