Off Topic: Slick - from baldy to fledgling

It's been 7 days since "Slick" descended 8 feet onto hard cement and he is doing great. The leg is still a concern and Denise is working with it to try to straighten. If the leg had been broke, he likely would have died from the shock associated with pain. If the leg will not straighten, then he will just reside with other "special" birds.

Recall that I said he should be fully feathered within a week.

We went from this last Tuesday where he was estimated at 24 hours old or less...

To this, last night....
