This morning I received a nice new cardboard box. I still sleep on the bottom on a layer of sawdust, but everybody can see that I am growing up fast. My feather pins are almost an inch long now and I've got baby down all over my body. Also, I can lift my wings and practice my flying without my head falling back on the floor each time. See how strong I get?
They say that you get used to everything. This is true, but still we miss our Dandy. We phone to the refugee center regularly to ask about our Dandy, and the answers are always the same: Dandy is still in quarantine but fine, he has adjusted well, he has stopped picking his feathers, he is between other Greys, although still in the same cage on his own. We are not allowed to visit him yet, but we will, as soon as his quarantine period is over!
