Oh, Heidi, my sweet Skybird died this morning! He had a little bacterial infection so I was treating both he and Wind (just in case) and he was getting better but still puffy and a little sleepier than normal. Apparently this upset Wind because this morning I found Sky on the bottom of the cage with a big, bloody wound on his head! Wind must have done it sometime in the night and by the time I found him he'd gone into shock and was very cold. I put him in a nice, warm hospital cage (with the heat on), but it was too late... My mom once saw a bird fly into a window and another bird pecked and pulled at it until it recovered and flew away, we think Windy was trying to do the same thing. She called to him until I showed his body to her, then she was very quiet. So this morning before class (I don't have class until 1 on Wednesdays) I took EVERYTHING out of their cage and soaked it in bleach water and Nolvisan, then scrubbed everything clean, scrubbed the pan and the whole cage (NOT and easy task- the cage is HUGE), added fresh branches etc. and put Wind back in. I'm going to wait a week and if she's not sick I'll get her a playmate or maybe three. I think one of the reasons Sky got sick was stress from being bullied by Wind (she wanted to mate, he didn't...) if I get three birds she might distribute her bullying more evenly -or better yet, find a mate among them. Hooray for you eggs, though! That's really great- I bet the people on your waiting list will be thrilled! I'm taking Sculpture, Drawing 3, 19th century Art History, and Art in Physics. I was supposed to take Life Drawing 2 also, but the class was full when I registered. I'm actually really glad because I think that would have been too much for me to handle! I also bought an open studio pass for the ceramics studio (guess what everybody's getting for Christmas this year!). What classes are you taking? Do you like this college better? What do you think about going to the Antique's Fair? It's September 15th&16th- it costs about $7- to get in, but there's a LOT to see...
