Captain’s head

As I suspected, Captain’s head is more resilient than most would imagine. His little oowie, bestowed on him by his cage mate when he got too… hmmm, how shall I put this?… amorous, is healing nicely and he may even get some feathers back in the little hole. Though she seemed to have taken enough flesh to cause a permanent bald spot, that doesn’t seem to be happening. This morning he tried to get to her veggie dish to see if there were pomegranate seeds there before she got to her snap peas. She turned on him in an instant and an instant later, he was on the far side of the cage being very, very respectful.

And all I could think was, “You go, girl!”
