If you have been reading the "Latest News pages, you will know that "Big Bird" the largest of the birds above was taken seriously ill just after Christmas '00
Against all the odds she has made a remarkable recovery. You can see the state she was in from the picture below, whilst she was in my utility room
This photo was taken just after Big Bird became ill in Jan '01. At this point she was still able to feed herself if a cup of liquidised food was held to her beak. After this she got a lot worse & food had to be syringed evry few hours down her throat. Great care was needed not to inject fluid into her lungs.
Here she is (10/06/01)
I still can't believe she has recovered to this degree as she was virtually an invalid in the picture above. She is still a little unsteady on her legs, but always chirups when I approach. She is down to about 18Kg now from the 27 she was at when she arrived
