Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

An irritation

From the post title, you will be forgiven for thinking this will be about Cagney but it is actually about Atilla & an irritating feather stump.

I noticed one morning that she was tugging at something on the bare part of her belly.  On closer inspection I could see a grey stump which I can only assume was the end of a feather.  She was pulling & tugging so hard it bled on the tip & she had some blood on her beak. 

She then largely left it alone except for the occasional tug.  However, a couple of days later, she was finally successful & pulled the nasty thing out.  The only problem was that there was blood smeared across her belly & again, on her beak.  She looked like she had been in the wars, poor darling.

She is fine now the irritation has gone. 🙂

    Atilla is a very brave girl – you must be proud of her!
