My lovely wee black rock, Matilda, has been sitting in the nest box more or less permanently for the last 2 says. I've been booting her out into the garden and closing the cube door and she's made it clear she ain't happy about it. However, when I lifted her out this morning I realised that her tummy area is completely bald. So is she just broody and moulting or is she ill? I can't see any mites or lice and she's been eating. Currently standing on her bluebell companion who is claimimg ownership of the dustbath! Any advice gratefully received.
