Ziggy Update

My little Parrotlet Ziggy continues to improve and amaze me. (He had a severely broken leg in December). I still have him in his hospital cage and have not allowed him to climb or perch except at the bottom of his hospital cage, per my avian vet's instructions. I think this has actually really helped him heal so much. He had lost all feeling in his foot and toes due to nerve damage, and we weren't sure he'd ever regain that. But last week, he wiggled his toes for us.

In the past two days, he has amazed me even more by perching on his little willow wreath at the bottom of his cage, and is hopping all around his hospital cage on top of things in there. I will be talking with the avian vet tomorrow and know she's going to be so pleased. Thank you so much to everyone that prayed for our little friend.
