Thanks for the update and videos, Teresa.

In the second to the last video, that little character sure knows where the top of the basket is, doesn't he?
He's going to be over the top in no time. Jumpin for joy

ROTFL He's going to try, at least! But what you can see is the bottom half of the cage. For ease of feeding him, considering the door is quite small, I unhook the top half, then put it back after he's eaten. If he starts getting too fidgety I'll put my hand in through the door to feed him and leave the top of the cage on.
I also have another, taller, bird cage. (I stock up on these things on the weeks when my babies don't eat up the whole budget, lol!)

My sister-in-law just came in. She watched me feeding him, and her heart totally melted! She said that I could keep him if I wanted to (did I just!), because, "if you hadn't looked after him, he'd be dead".

Thank you! Feeling great Thank You circling

This is his set-up, though it looks like a disguised Halloween pumpkin! That's too funny
Baby Houdini is not going anywhere when I'm not there with him! Laughing (There's a heating pad under the cage).



And then there were three... I'm also babysitting Xi-ri's parents (below) while my sister-in-law is on holiday. They're staying until the 18th.



I've since fixed the bent bars on the right and the broken one, by the way. With 3 cats running around, I don't want gaps between the bars big enough for them to escape... Even though the cats are kept out of that room, they can be quite fast on their feet!

I love Xi-ri's wonderful little setup, Teresa. Great job He is just too adorable in there.
He kind of reminds me of a little prince sitting on Dad's throne. Happy
His parents are beautiful. I love it/them

Thank you for your kind words, but the credit goes to the little fella -- he's a real fighter!

I hope he comes through this allright. I worry when he's not eating enough, which has been the last 2 mornings. By lunchtime he's eating very well, and continues until night, but in the morning he eats very small amounts at a time, and I just have to give him another little bit when his crop empties -- between half an hour and 3/4 of an hour later. Question Any idea why? It can't be the temperature, that's pretty constant. Could it be related to the amount of daylight? That room gets a lot more light in the afternoon. Hmmm

Gosh Teresa...I have no idea about why he eats less in the morning feeding.

He sure has made a dramatic change form when you first brought him home.

Appreciate the update, Teresa.
That is interesting about his eating habits.

Xi-ri is coming on strong, and calling for me as soon as he hears the door open! As soon as I do what I hope is a canary imitation, he starts peeping madly! Tickled Pink But for all I know, he could be saying, 'Did you just call my mother a lizard?' That's too funny
He's eating about 0.75 ml per feed in the morning, and being fed about every 45 mins. But in the evening he can put away a full 2 ml!
The toes on both feet are uncurling! Happy Dance Happy Dance Happy Dance

I'm so glad to hear Xi-ri is doing so well, Teresa. Really glad to hear the good news about the toes uncurling.

You are doing an awesome job with him. Way To Go

Very worried about Xi-ri Not feeling well

He's been eating well and everything, but the progress with his toes seems to come and go. And when I fed him an hour ago his nest was all wet and smelt like Salmonella.
I googled 'canaries salmonella' to see if there were reported cases and got really scared when I found an article on Salmonella osteomyelitis in canaries, which is diagnosed by bone/articulation deformations with or without intestinal infection. I don't know what to think. Very sad I've alredy got more on my plate than I can handle tomorrow, but I'll have to find a way to take him back to the vet's, only I don't know if they'll be able to do the tests.

Please send healing thoughts his way. Pigeon angel
