The hospital dubbed the fowl “Vinny” after Vindaloo curry and started working scrubbing his feathers clear. Tiggywinkles mentioned within the publish that Vinny was nearing launch. The hospital didn’t return a request for remark.
In a post-bath picture, Vinny confirmed his white feathers, though with a slight hue of orange nonetheless lingering.
