Traumatic times

Worrisome week - Angela was unwell, tripping, sitting for long periods. Eloise wonderfully caring - demanding that Angela get up NOW and catch some insects; peeping very loudly when she couldn't find her. Phoned the breeder for after-sales service, but his response was too pragmatic and not to my liking - "if she doesn't get any better wring her neck and get another bird".

Anyway - she wasn't ill - she was faint with hunger. Insects alone do not a little bird sustain and the bird brains hadn't worked out that they were supposed to be eating grain as well.

Now the problem is ensuring they don't spend too much time sitting in the feed basin!
