    How is she doing?

    I would bring her in where I could monitor her eating/drinking and be able to offer her some tasty treats. How is her crop? Her eye - inflamed or just had a bit of goop?

    Has she been laying or molting? Could she be egg bound?

    How does she react when you pick her up?
