    I'm slow, but I agree! Looks much better than I expected. Congrats on a job well done! Let's hope he's out of the deep woods now.

    Ok, the problems continue. Since he was removed from shell. Loose in bator. He just curls up with head back under wing. ( See pic 1)I tried putting a collar on him to keep neck straight. ( pic 2). He just fights that on his back (pic 3). So wrapped him in paper towel and put him in cup (pic 4). I'm out of ideas. Maybe just time to retrain muscles or brain problems?[​IMG]
