Hello out there, first time user but often read here, I need to ask please for some guidance, our girl Iris is rather ill. We inherited her 9 months ago and was already not laying any more. Iris is off eating now for 4 days and sleeps a lot her poop is runny and whiteish slightly green in colour. She is sluggish and laboured breathing with eyes shut, I've had to clean her up around her bottom as you can imagine it sticks to her feathers. She just sits and looks grey around her eyes and doesn't make a sound... Poor girl is just miserable..

That sounds awful. Might have to put her down is my guess.

If she's miserable, I don't think it's right to try and prolong it. But what do I know?

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~
