Peep is not doing very well. Her regular feathers are not coming in. The chick fluff is getting thinner. Her wings look almost like lace when she spreads them. But she is standing more than she did, and she continues to eat and drink water. I just tell myself that what will be will be. I am surprised that she has made it this far.
She peeps almost continuously. I hope it is not stress. It goes like this: peep peep peep peep PEEP! Always five in a row. Then a little pause and another five peeps with the accent on the last peep.
Today I bought her a mirror. When she saw herself in the mirror, she immediately stopped peeping. I left the closet so that she could get to know her new friend. When I stuck my head in the closet a few minutes ago, her peep pattern had changed. Now it is peep peep peep (pause) peep peep peep (pause) peep peep peep. I wonder what it means?
