Okay, so for the past several weeks, I have been averaging fourteen hour days at work. There have been days when I have just given up and slept in a sleeping bag on the floor of my office, because I was too tired to make the trip home.
So last week, in the middle of everything, I am hand-feeding two baby Gouldian finches. This alone is very stressful and time-consuming. It seems you are just done washing and cleaning up after one feeding and then you have to start getting ready

Okay, so I head down into the birds' room the other day, and there is one of my parakeets, sitting there, leg sticking out at a forty-five degree angle. The look on her face says, "What are you going to do about it?"
I catch her (and she bites me in the process) and we go to the vet. Turns out that Daisy has a broken leg. The vet puts a tape splint on her and says these work great with budgies. Bring her back in a month and we'll take it off.
