Me want some... by emmil Me want some... by emmil
First of all, I have upload a video of Pocky without the plaster aid if you wanna see the leg progress. Thanks for the support so far, Very encouraging and they mean a lot to me... :)

Sometimes it breaks my heart to see how big the gap of the growth between these 2 siblings. They look like 3 weeks apart when they actually is just 1 week top apart by hatching date.

Pocky's body looks like Peewee's when she was 2 weeks old here: [link] but Pocky, with that small pinky and cranky body of his, has started to grow some feathers. I particularly worry about the feathers on his wings. He has the primary flight feather grown but no sign of primary coverts, not even the roots. I only hope if the wings are handicapped, they still let him glide smoothly when he falls. Poor baby, and sometimes I still can see him smiling, in spite of all the hardship he must endure... :cry:

On another note, I've changed their diet. They've been eating vetafarm brand baby bird food for about a week.

Would you like to buy some calendars of my lovebirds?

I just HAVE to ask. How did it go for little Pocky? How did the wings grow in? Can he fly, or glide? :( So sad that his life started out harshly.

It might be possible his small wings just can't handle the pores for all the feathers he needs. (No expert, just a theory) Hopefully once he gets bigger and his body can support more, they'll start forming. Is it possible he could have hatched premature or something? I don't exactly know how that works... I've dealt with premature babies and runt kittens, and his development seems very much like those cases. They wind up having a lot of delays, but if you can get them past that, they have a chance to catch up and continue growth normally.

He does look sadly underweight and undersized. I used to hand rear my chicks with a mix of cooked egg, vegtables, fruit, sunflower seeds and yoghurt all diced into a nice liquid feed to compliment their branded baby bird formula.

It was probably wrong diet at the early age...
His Sis, Peewee was a bit slow to grow at the 1st week but then catch up soon... Whatever Pocky condition now, I'm part of it, so I will never give up on him.

When I was starting out over 20 years ago, we lost a whole clutch due to not knowing enough about diet. This was before the internet so it was really heart breaking. But Pocky still has a good chance so fingers crossed.

Yes, he's a real fighter, a ball of spirit!
There was time I almost lost him, but I'm optimist now that he'll go through this life trial.

Maybe Pocky was rejected because of his deformities. Animals do that you know.

Nah, it was probably my fault because I had 0 experience taking care 1 day old baby, but because his mom is a bad hen who have just killed 2 babies, I took my chance to raise him and his sister, Peewee.

Pocky will get better, with your dedication and love i know he will, everything will fix themselves, that's nature, and i'm sure he will be a very nice pet and bring his own crazyness to the colony cage hauhauauahua. Have faith Emmil and be strong Pocky.
