Actually, I would worry over Jazzie's surgery but not much over Yaya's. Not that ANY surgery is not a source of worry but whether they amputate the wing or try to fix the broken bones, we are talking about something which outcome would not develop into a fatality -I mean, what's the worst that could happen? That they amputate either now or after they try to fix it and fail? Not having a wing is not going to kill the bird but having an obstructed or not working right intestine would - know what I mean?

Your so right , and she is very pleased with his progress. We are still completely socked in with smoke . Everyday it's in the hazardous or unhealthy range and the birds are really starting to act out . There so used to there outdoor routine in the summer months. I've still got Rio and she is a hand full and very distructive . I've made her a huge playstands with tons of goodies to keep her occupied but that wore off in a few days. Enough for now time to clean up there breakfast mess. :roll: BW

Oh, my... I can only begin to imagine how hard it must be with smoke in the air day in and day out! I would also imagine that even running air purifiers 24/7 doesn't quite do it all the way...

And, yes, my parrots hate it when their routine is changed, too. They don't mind so much a day or two but go longer than that and they let me know they are NOT happy about it and that it's ALL my fault! :lol: Thankfully, it hardly ever happens.

YAYA'S surgery went well ! She is in the incubator still , this is day two so she gets used to her wraps and collar and doesn't hurt herself. They were able to save the wing but had to get a little creative with one of the bones. It's going to be quite a recovery for her. Wow I have such a headache from being out in the smoke yesterday, won't do that again but the birds needed veg and fruit. Jazzie will come home Saturday . I'll tell more later BW

Just got off the phone with rabbit air representative down here and they will be out within the hour to test air and install new systems. I can't take this S--t anymore ! Sounds like a 747 non stop flying in my house and god knows the fids make enough noise. These units are for hospitals and I'm going to :D have a quieter solution now . Yeay !!!! I feel so sorry for the people that can't afford to do this but I need to do it because these fires and smoke pollution seems to be an on going problem now. Today should be a better day. :D

SOOOOO glad you have the funds for it!!! And, yes, I would imagine that lots of people would ask you to board their birds... poor people must be consumed with worry for their fids!

I read yesterday that it was a bunch of teenagers playing with fireworks that caused it! I always said that the kids should all be sent to military school when they reach 13 and kept there until they are 23! I LOVE children with a passion and have infinite patience with them but teenagers are a completely different animal!

:lol: Yes, there is obviously a wide streak of craziness in anybody who cares for many birds! But I bet the owners of the coming birds are going to nominate you for beatification - it must be such a weight off their shoulders to know their birds are safe and breathing good air!

I wish I was closer so I could come and help you even if it's only for a couple of hours a day entertaining the birds. Why don't you advertise in CL for a couple of volunteers? I bet you can get a couple of young people to play with them for a few hours.
