The bird is better

Our bird was sick. But he’s better now. After a few days he seemed resigned to me grabbing him and sticking a syringe in his mouth and only put up token resistance. He did start holding the antibiotic in his mouth so I waved a finger at him. Trying to bite me made him swallow!

Over the last two days he must have been feeling lots better because he fought hard not to be caught and tried some vicious bites. Only one mildly hurt through the fleece winter glove so that was good. He also took to dribbling out the antibiotic and wiping it on the glove. Smart bird.

Over the weekend his nostrils swelled up but he didn’t sneeze much and they didn’t get red so we hung in hoping not to have to start treating again. He was ok for a couple of days but they are swollen again today so I don’t think we’re out of the woods yet. Can only keep an eye on him and hope things don’t get worse again. At least we have left over antibiotic which is good for a month if we need it.
