Update on 'Teeny' (the little chick in the rehab centre). Teeny is doing well, and looking a lot better apparently. He / She was very fortunate to have missed the series of hailstorms we had last night, which the other two chicks didn't escape. The Wildlife Rehab Centre person in the clinic said that Teeny has two dedicated people feeding it, and it should be able to come back to be re-introduced next week.
The re-introduction thing is new to us too. If all goes well, Pot Plant Owl will realise there is another mouth to feed, and just feed it. If things don't work out, we will take Teeny back to the rehab centre for feeding, and later release into the wild. Either way, Teeny is in the nest of hands at the moment and my honest feeling is that he/ she wouldn't have survived past yesterday if we didn't take it away.
I felt quite stressed last night watching the other two little chicks huddling together when the hail came down. At least the hail stones weren't too big. It is Nature, but one forgets how hard it is for them, unless you are watching closely, like we are doing now.
