Unhappy Poor Kami

We think she must have had a night fright last night, because she's lost a lot of the feathers on one wing, and can't fly at the moment. She's feeling quite sorry for herself just now but she's enjoying being babied a bit too, and she'll be getting a lot of her favourite things for the next couple of days. The worst thing, is that she forgets she can't fly, and keeps trying and missing. Lofty seems fine though, and we can't see any feathers missing on her.

Before this, they've only had night frights first thing in the morning, like a few weeks ago, when we were looking after my parents dog. We'd uncovered them, but they weren't really awake yet, and the dog banged against the cage, which panicked them. Other than a couple more instances like that, they haven't had any in just over a year that we've owned them. We're definitely going to see about getting them a night light now though.

Yeah, we were lucky. She lost one feather that had some blood in it, but it was finished growing, and the blood was drying up anyway. And Lofty's also broken blood feathers before, but she's pulled both out before we knew anything about it.

Awww, poor lil Kami, they can really get frantic when they're spooked. I hope she recovers quickly, and I do think a night light will help, all my birds have them.

My birds have a night light too and have never had a night fright *touching wood* Niblet was flighted until the day we brought him home and still thinks he can fly. In fact he broke his tail feathers in an accident last week (don't know how) and he now has no flight at all, flops to the floor with a thump . What's even funnier is that Millie is still trying to teach him how

Poor Kami! Mojito is growing his wings out and getting a little freedom right now, but he will sooon be into everything and will have to be flight-less.
