Due to some unbelievably unfortunate circumstances, I will be 'depopulating' my flock shortly. I can't describe how much this saddens me. I do know that most of you on here can relate. I have a fondness for my birds that most people can't seem to understand.
I took a bird that died for necropsy at New Bolton Center. The bird tested positive for a disease that can be passed to humans with a compromised immune system. New Bolton has only seen it once before in 30 years. As DD#2 has recently been diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer, and even though, God willing, she will have a swift recovery and not have chemotherapy, we are not willing to take any chances. So this is where we are. If anyone here would like some beautiful Olive Egger eggs to hatch, or some BLRWs, I will have the birds for another week or 2. I wish my Orpingtons or Marans were laying, but they are not.
This is my Devan, she has surgery tomorrow prayers are appreciated. Thanks peeps.
Saying prayers for your beautiful daughter and whole family. Sorry about your birds as well.
Seems like a crappy time of year for all this to happen. I myself am going on Friday to have a mass removed and sent to pathology. I get my stitches removed and results back on my 40th birthday! I hoping for a happy birthday!
