A blog about my beautiful budgies.

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. 🙂
