Sandy is discombobulated
This is a chick with an interesting history for its short life: It was adopted by a male-male pair to relieve its biological parents and has featured as a star here on FB a few times. It also has a sponsor - someone who cares. Its foster-dads have done a marvelous job but the chick was not quite fat enough at the weigh-in at 70 days. So here he is - we think it's a 'he' - on his first day in rehab. He has probably been a bit hungry for a while so twice a day salmon should see him right in no time. Bringing him in early means he is likely to be released at normal fledging age of 3.5 months and his dads will get a chance to fatten up and moult together - they might even think that the chick is really precocious and has left early.....regardless, even his 2-year young dad should make it through the moult now unassisted.
