    GOOD FOR YOU!
    Glad to hear things are working out.
    Ask the Vet about food. Some pellets are like white bread with
    color and scent added.
    Please don't let the vet do a wing trim on a baby.
    I have seen too many split breast areas on young birds from a
    too early wing trim. They fall hard & split the skin!
    The baby needs to "get her feet under her" before the wings are
    trimmed. Then if needed do it just a little bit at a time.
    I have also seen birds that start to pluck & mutilate after a
    poorly done or poorly timed wing trim.
    Give her time to gain strength and confidence
    Remember birds are like 2 year olds, baby see, baby do.
    Best of luck
