Ms. Bee was lifting and dropping her wing yesterday... I
keep watching her... wondering if she was okay. It was
like, every time it relaxes and touches down to the hay,
she lifts it up in place again. It looked uncomfortable,
so I called our vet and rushed her in for x-rays to make
sure nothing fell out of place.
x-rays looked great! Bones are all healing well. We
think it might be the weight of her growing pinfeathers
coming in that's giving her some trouble, making it
harder to hold up in place with all the wire gear in
goes back October 5th for wire removal! Woo hoo!
helped me finish up the work on the new pond liner,
getting it all in place, then I filled it with water and
Marvin jumped right in for an adventure!
Ms. Bee is in a sectioned off area of the pen, so she
and Marvin can see each other all day, but he can't
touch her, and she can't get in water---no swimming yet!
Okay... I know I fell behind on diary
updates (I'm caught up now!), but it wasn't my fault.
We're experiencing server issues with our webhosting
company and they're refusing to take responsibility for
it... blaming it all on our use of Frontpage, when I
know for a fact this is not the issue. I realize
Frontpage is an outdated program and apparently I need
to learn how to re-create our website under a new design
program (a nightmarish thought...), but that is not the
reason for their server issues.
Anyway... my apologies to everyone... especially my pen
pal Laura and her duck Handsome Kenny who wrote to me
himself (and it's hard to type with webbed feet) to tell
me to get on the ball--ha ha! Okay, Kenny... Okay!
