I know massaging with pin feathers may be uncomfortable but isn't it treating the most important thing?Cross my fingers.
If she can stay alive another week I'll be able to do something more constructive.
I worried about that with Minnie but decided that the crop could kill her but as long as I didn't break any blood feathers that the massaging pin feathers would just be uncomfortable. And as it turned out she liked the massage even though she was porcupine like.
What I was careful not to do was move feathers relative to skin. I really pummeled the crop so the movement of skin and feathers was not a lot really. Hard to describe.
