I don’t have anything new to post today as I spent a lot of time resting. I thought I’d share (for newer followers) some past pics and vids of Scooter.
Link to her story is in my bio. 👆🏼
FYI, I brought Scooter home Sept. 29 and she IS a DNA’d tested female.
The first vid is how her legs are permanently shaped so it was a challenge to turn her feet slowly so she can perch. When I got her her skin was yellow, covered in sores; but she slowly healed.
There’s a pic meeting Chicken Man the first time.
There are a few pics of her sibling, fully feathered and strong. He (she?) is healthy and the one who got all the food from the parents, obviously. The other two babies died and Scooter was close behind.
Some comparison pics of her feather growth (she’s not nakey anymore! 👏🏼).
There’s a pic of the very first time Scooter “perched” on a straw covered in vet wrap and the one where she stood on the table and looks so proud (before that she fell in her face because her back wasn’t strong enough to hold her up - she had scoliosis) that is my favorite picture of her.
All I did was give her time and space to heal and grow. It’s all HER. She’s got a lot of spirit and will. You should hear how loud she screams at the vacuum cleaner lol.
I’ll try to post tomorrow. Lots of resting these days, but the fids are adorable and doing well. Goodnight Instafriends! 🌙
