Just checking in to let you all know that........

.......... little Jack Sparrow is doing well.  That's not birdie poo in the photo, by the way.... it's baby food and has since been removed. :)  I think he wanted a lie in this morning.  I got up ready to start feeding him at 5 a.m., but he wouldn't accept anything till about 6 a.m.  He gave me scare.  I thought, "Oh no, the beginning of the end."  It was such a relief when he began tucking into his breakfast shortly after.  He's also been taking very small amounts of water off the end of my finger.  His menu today is:  baby porridge, baby Sunday dinner, soaked dog biscuit, crumbled up suet pellets and a small amount of seed.  Thank goodness for my wooden manicure stick.  It's the perfect implement for 'spoon feeding' tiny sparrows.  This is his fourth day with us - I'm just beginning to dare to hope.......


  1. Cracking stuff girl. Just make sure you hit the gape with y spoon.
    I'm sure everyones fingers, toes and whatever are all firmly crossed for the little fella.

  2. Lol, thanks Johnny. :) I'm happy to say that he's fine this morning too. I weighed him yesterday and he's 25 grams (0.9 ounce). :D

  3. I must point out that there is no nappy changing involved here Lesley. You are in charge of the faecal sac removal instead.
    Nice to hear that FAT Jack Sparrow is piling the weight on.

  4. What! No nappy changing? And I sat up all last night sewing 1" square terry towelling nappies! :O)
