Bank holiday, electric blanket and strange poops

Being fed

Atilla slept on the loft perch all night In the morning, Cagney started to feed her breakfast.  Thankfully she was accepting his seed.  I attempted to give her some Guardian Angel (sick bird supplement) but she point blank refused to drink it but readily slurped the normal water.  She spent most of the day on that perch with Cagney feeding her at regular intervals.

To keep her warm I threw my electric blanket over the top of the Manor.

Her poops were getting weird.  One poop had yellow in it.  Could this be egg yolk?  Could she have produced an egg but the hernia caused complications?  As luck would have it, when I checked online, I found Mr Avian Vet had a surgery at a reasonably close clinic the next day.  I rang & booked an appointment.

Strange poop

I described her symptoms briefly over the phone & was told to give her antibiotics.  I had some left over from November so I made some up & Atilla drank some of the medicated water.

In the evening she made her way down to the other perch & sat there for awhile.  At bedtime, she climbed up to the peg & jumped across to the front round swing.  She was ready for bed & I was ready for another night of observation.
