Poor little Pip. He's not doing well. He has not grown in any of his flight feathers, even though we have had him since May, so he climbs everywhere.
Last week, he climbed up the curtains to play, even though he knows he isn't supposed to. I was heading over to get him down, and shoo the other two off, when a hawk flew right by the window. All 3 keets freaked out. Peppy and Petey flew into the dining room, but Pip took off and dropped to the floor like a stone. The thud was unbelieveable. The vet said he didn't break anything, but has a badly bruised keel bone. Now he is picking at it, so I know it must hurt him, even though like all keets, he acts like nothing is wrong, and tries to keep up with the other two. It's more than the picking, though. Something's off about him. I think he has to go back to the vet. I don't think he looks right. Wish us luck.
