A minor setback

Atilla has been unwell for a couple of days.  On Sunday & Monday she was very quiet & did not come out of the Manor.  Her poops were getting caught on her lump.  They seemed to be dribbling out.  She had either lost the energy to propel them out away from her lump and/or they were not solid enough.  Several times, I had to grab her & remove the poop buildup.

Fortunately she was still eating.  I started giving her antibiotics in case she had some kind of infection.

This morning when I uncovered them, she stretched her wings & chirped.  This was a very good sign.  There was no overnight poop caught on her lump.  Another very good sign.  During the day she perked up enough to check on the mirror under the manor & even visited the poang chair a few times.

The toyboys have been fussing around her, not leaving her alone for a moment.  In fact, I believe that was her main motivation for going to the chair… so she could hide under the tea towel from them for a little peace!

Here are the boys keeping an eye on her:
