    Thank you to the person who sent wing feathers but didn't put their name on the envelope, have a feeling it may have been Jules (jaspers mum) :) received safe and sound this morning.
    The feathers are now on the way to the vets to be sorted and prepared ready for the imping process. Will let you all know when that is and how it all goes :)
    Thank you all once again for stepping up to help a feathered beauty have the opportunity to get natures gift of flight back.

    @jaspers mum was it you? if it was thank you and if it wasn't thank you to whoever it was :emoji_bouquet:

    I sent a bag full! enclosing wing feathers,
    So I hope they were received as you said " there were so many , you thought my bird was in there"
    I hope these presious items have been used and saved for other birds in need , as I was told.
    I hope all goes well with the implanting
    Best wishes

    Hi Nicky ...yes your feathers gratefully received and will be a great help for this and future procedures.
    It was good t have a number of people responding as we needed all the primaries for the left hand side... and as each feather is a slightly different size and shape we were concerned in case we couldn't get a full set!

    For anyone who has an interest...DizzyBlue posted this very interesting thread-

    Feathers are now with the vet being sorted and prepared for the imping process the week after next and it will be fingers crossed for success.
    It's thanks to you lovely peeps sending all those special feathers that the bird gets that special chance :)
    Will keep you all posted as to how things go.
    I'm going to keep collecting the perfect moulted feathers from all my flock and keep donating them to which ever vets need them to give another feathered beauty or tow a chance of getting back what should never have been taken away :thumbsup:
    If I get any further requests from vets for something specific I will let you know to see if anybody wishes to join in help
