Day 5 and Still Alive !

The Pen seemed a bit perkier today and almost joined in the play session with the cygnets. That was until she raised her wings and promptly put them back again. A case of the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. I only hope the damage to her wings will not put an end to her flying days, that would be a tragedy. We wont know this until she has grown all her new flight feathers in about a months time. It will probably take that long for her wounds to heal up anyway.
The avian adviser says I need to keep giving her the antibiotics for another 5 days yet.

With a strong southerly breeze the cygnets were flexing their wings and running into the wind.
