    Fostering baby lovie! 3 weeks old! 2 splayed legs! Hannah's baby...

    Tomorrow Hannah's owner will give me a 3 weeks old lovie baby from Hannah! But he/she has splayed legs so she told me that If baby survives i could keep it. Since she have little to none experience with the splay of legs. She is afraid of doing something wrong and killing it! So she will bring tomorrow.

    I do need some tips for the splayed legs. I know i'm on time to fix it as he/she is very young. I have read quiet a lot about it. I'm hoping someone can give me tips and advice. I have hand raised lovies before but not a fully splayed leg lovie, Baylee have her left leg splayed but is barely noticeable as i used to massage her leg. And it was never fully splayed.

    This chick is fully splayed! From what she told me today. She started handfeeding it this afternoon. Even tho Hannah could feed it, the baby had fell once and Hannah's owner feared that it fell again during the night and it could die out in the cold weather.

    Also it seems that at the end i will not move to Europe after all. With all the polítical stuff going on here in my country, just not the right time at least for now, we might wait until next year, and depends If i start university on schedule which should be September/October. So we will see... By now move its on hold.

    Hi Maria.
    Well fancy that. At least you do have a leg band if you need it now. I am sure you will find a lot of useful info there.

    Did you read anything on this thread where we were talking about the Lovie with splayed legs?

    Yeah i saw that thread...i'll get some pics of the little fellow! He/she is on the way! It's a huge difference to hand feed an 8 week old baby than a 4 week old baby, Hannah's owner fed 'Kiddo' Hannah's oldest son born in December but he was already about 6 weeks old so feedings werent every 3 hours, they were 4 times a day, so she is not used to feed them at this age of 3 weeks!

    Congrats on your new baby lovie, Artemis. I also would refer you to the thread Clive posted. There was quite a discussion on that thread about splayed legs, and there were folks who were very willing to help out any person if they needed the help.

    That was silly of me!
    I recall now, you did comment on that thread. You were quoting The Book.
    Well at least you will now get first hand knowledge of working with splayed legs.
    Sometimes when working with retarded and handicapped birds they seem to understand you are trying to help them, and this can make life a little bit easier when working with them. It sure does a lot for the bond you will have.
    The one thing I am sure of is that you are going to do your best for this one, same as you have done for Baylee.

    What a cute name! My thread, posted above, definitely has a lot of do's and don'ts that are helpful - I know I learned a lot. I'm still working with Aussie though because he's not 100 percent hand tame. Congrats on the new addition!

    Oh no, hopefully they will grow to be the same length. I cant see the picture you posted here but I had this problem with your pics before.

    I cant see Artemis on that forum either Some day I am going to have to sign up for that forum just so I can see the pictures on it because I go to it and read it but never can see the pictures that people post. Does she look like Hannah?

    That made me smile because now I know what she looks like. Were you able to put anything on her leg to get it braced up? I do hope you can it least help her out enough that she can perch and sit correctly once she grows up.
