    Hi all i posted this in another thread but wanted to draw a bit of attention to it.

    Pidgey will be 2 weeks old on Tuesday and her umbilical cord is still firmly attached, her brother lost his after about 3/4 days and i was just wondering what i should do?

    hi

    from what i can remember from years ago i had one that stayed on a bit longer it will eventually drop of but if it is at all moist then that is not good. I would leave it for a couple more days and if it doesn't fall off then i would phone the vet and see what they say. Its good to hear that they are both doing good and i can't wait to see the pictures.
