Poor little Abbie

Abbie can’t fly at the moment. She’s been like this for a few weeks. It’s a particularly tough moult for her and she has lost several flight feathers.

She can glide pretty well from a high cage down to a lower one, but when she ends up on the floor I have to put her back up high again because she cannot gain any height.

I have been giving her egg and plenty of vegetables as well as their current seed mix which is enriched with all sorts of vitamins and minerals.

Hopefully the new flight feathers will grow in soon.

Here she is with her boyfriend Hector.

    Is she going to be okay?

      I hope she will be okay. I hope that this is just a tough moult. She’s fine apart from the flying.
