Spike had his first night fright :( I forgot to turn on his night light :mad: at myself. I usually turn it on first before I cover him.
And my cat Sugar decided to go look at him and gave him a night fright. My Mom heard the cage rattling and got my Dad to come down, since she thought someone was in our kitchen. He lost all of his tail and a couple wing feathers and broke a blood feather. There is some blood on his wing side. I think he pulled it himself though. Since there was no blood on the bottom of the cage. I put down paper towel so I can see if he starts to bleed again. Will his blood feather just grow out again? He seems to be ok, since he is talking some this morning. My parents did not check him though. And I did not find out until about 7:30 and it happened around midnight. I think I might buy him a baby monitor.

A baby monitor is a great idea if he's not near you. Seems that all our babies are going through their share of nightfrights. If he is molting, feathers are lost more easier and that's probably why he was able to pull the blood feather on his own too. The thing with feathers is one you pull it, another one follows right after within a week or two you'll see a new pin coming in. Glad he's ok so far.

That's good. It's pretty scary to see them thrashing around the cage like they've gone MAD. Ziggy is the last to calm down when it's happened here..

Spike is playing now, but he has been having yellow pee. Do you think it is just from the stress. He is now 80 grams from 83 I guess that is not a big change.

No I did not, that is probably why. But why the yellow pee? I don't think he could have fatty liver diease. He is not over weight. I must just be paroniod :eek:

Occasionally the liquid part will have a coloured tinge to it, as long as it doesn't last long (more than a day max.) i don't worry about it, and it seems to clear up on it's own.
