    Yes sure @Roz - she has concentrated on her keel line, legs and wing edges so looks a bit raggedy. It makes no difference to me, just a shame, keep telling her she could be such a good looking girl LOL. She likes looking at herself as welll which is funny. :)

    Just a quick update on the 'lil chicken. I have given up adding hidden ingredients to her mash, she can tell and won't eat any of it. She tries a little of the fresh chop/veggies.

    No real difference with the plucking and she is the same or slightly more naked than when she arrived. She switches around the area she concentrates on :thinking:. I am trying to not focus on it and instead making sure she is occupied and happy. ** She appears so. She will focus on one particular type of toy for a while and then move on to another. Tried to get pics without success this week. She is hanging on the roof of her cage undoing the toy links but as soon as she sees you she comes down to look at us. I do them up again and she goes right back to undo them. I will not be getting her a spanner set for Christmas :lol:.

    ** I was seriously contemplating a fleece collar/poncho thing for her but am thinking this may in fact be dangerous as she is clumsy at times. Also do not want to restrict her having fun or increase the risk of falls which she does from time to time. Had eleven little feathers/fluff in her night cage the other night but no idea what caused this. I guess something from the day before so will have to make better mental notes in future.

    Lou loves to look out into the garden and this is the activity for most of the morning, watching the birds. A few weeks ago I put some washing out and got told off for blocking her view! :nut:

    I get regular cuddles, she climbs down to sit on my chest and plonks herself right under my chin and will stay there for some time. I am getting the impression that she does not like me fast forwarding through a TV programme. Aren't they funny?

    Pics are due of Lou and Rubes, promise.
