One eventually starting starving and I had to syringe feed her..then it got to the point that it really wasn't helping and we had to off her
Oh wow. We are so lucky that our older hen with it survived...hers is really extreme. This seems pretty mild. I will definitely keep a close eye on her.
Hilary, loving Charles, mama to Charlie 1-21-12 on the way in December!
