Cozy eating her pellets, veggies and seed

Well Cozys now eating her pellets, veggies, and soaked seeds, I also got her off peanuts and onto hazelnuts which she was weary to try at first but now loves them just as much. I soak the pellets in a bit of orange juice and add a bit of sustainable Palm oil to them and she eats them like crazy, the soaked seeds I just add a bit of her old seeds to it and mix and she eats them, I've been adding some clay to her greens for minerals and to help eliminate any possible parasite in case that's why she plucks, I also add a bit of hemp, alfalfa, kelp, and cayenne pepper to the veggies. I want to take her for a blood test but not until she's completely settled in.

I hope she stops plucking too, keep up with all the love and attention this seems to be making a good difference in her new life with you.

I know I and others here would love to hear she's flying in 2016.

Me too that would be amazing. I work doubles at my kennel, so I wonder if I should take her or if the noise and travelling would stress her more, my husband lets her out for 5-6 hours a day on the weekend but doesn't interact with her she just does her own thing, I think probably for now its best to leave her

That's awesome! I love seeing a bird eat well. I would however get your bloods done now before she meets other birds and before she's settled, that way you know she's safe to be handling/be around your flock and she won't have to go out again unless it's an emergency so she can settle

The thing I'm worried about is that as soon as she goes in the carrier she plucks like crazy and its an hour and a half drive

That's so sad for her, poor baby! I bet it's stressful for you to see too! While it's not pleasant, I'd get it over and done with now so that she doesn't start growing in feathers and then ends up destroying them again when she goes out. Once all of the initial stress is over and done with it doesn't have to happen again so I'm sure she will be okay! I know it's not a nice thought. What carrier do you use? If you are using a cat carrier, try using a small bird cage instead perhaps? A few birds don't like the cat carrier style boxes but I prefer them just because they don't let in as much light. If she's in a small cage you can put the belt around it and sit next to her. Pop some treats in and such!

Maybe I'll give that a try, I have a travel cage I could try instead, yeah it wasn't a fun drive home when I picked her up. I'll call and make the appointment tomorrow
