Not due until tomorrow!
Hopefully a purebred modern game (Flint x Lupeta) but possibly a modern game cross.
Staphylococcus spp. are normal inhabitants of the skin and mucous membranes of animals. If left unchecked, however, they can cause opportunistic infections such as septicemia (blood poisoning), bone infections, breast blisters, and ulcerative pododermatitis, or bumblefoot. Diagnosis is easily achieved through isolation from samples of infected bodily fluids or pus. Staph infections should be controlled primarily by managing any factors that could potentially predispose birds to becoming infected - it is highly recommended that antimicrobial susceptibility testing be done before using antibiotic drugs to treat infections, as multi-drug resistant strains of S. aureus are a serious rising issue. Home “treatmenst” of bumblefoot involving manual extraction of “bumbles” or dead tissue cause birds significant pain and are extremely inhumane. If your bird has bumblefoot, you should take it to a veterinarian who can treat it surgically and mitigate the pain.
Mycobacterium avium subspecies avium
Birds are the major host of M. avium subsp. avium, which causes avian tuberculosis. The disease slowly and progressively develops over months to years, and features tubercles that form in the intestine and associated lymph nodes, disseminating to other organs such as the liver, spleen, and bone. It is commonly seen in backyard chickens and zoos. Birds who test positive should be isolated and treated with combination antimycobacterial drugs; however, they must be treated for prolonged periods of time and monitored carefully in order to recover successfully. The source of infection is often from the environment, and not other birds.
Widespread in the intestine of chickens and fecally-contaminated soil, C. perfringens is a spore-forming, toxin-producing bacterium that is a major cause of necrotic enteritis (inflammation of the small intestine that also kills tissue) in broiler chickens (breeds intended to be raised for meat). This condition also predisposes chickens to infection with coccidial parasites, exacerbating intestinal damage. Antimicrobial drugs are incorporated into feed to preven or treat necrotic enteritis. Alternatives for those seeking to raise their flocks without antibiotics involve reducing protein content in feed, and making management changes to control against coccidiosis. In some areas, such as the southern US, C. perfringens and other similar bacteria have been reported to cause fatal infections of the skin and muscles in chickens, a condition referred to as “gangrenous dermatitis”.

Alright. So. Hi! I’m Ky. Been a while since I’ve done tumblr aside from specifically Flight Rising. (I have a flight rising blog over @dovahfr that is absolutely nothing but that)
So I need to follow some people but it’s not easy to find active blogs to follow just through the search feature. So I’m looking for anyone who is currently pretty active and posts any of the following frequently
(no worries if you post other things too!)
- Hollow Knight (Super into this right now, so absolutely looking for this)
- The Witcher (any version of it)
- Fire Emblem Three Houses
- Bang Dream Girl’s Band Party
- Animal crossing (mostly interested in art and original content not just screenshots of pretty towns and patterns though)
Or any of these non-fandom related things:
- OC art and stories
- Furry OCs and character design
- Character design in general
- Dinosaurs and paleontology
- Chickens. Definitely Chickens.
Basically I’m trying to make a new place for all my fandom stuff and general entertainment so hit me. I follow so few people rn that my dashboard doesn’t really work correctly. Help.
