Hello all - I'm Mel and my family have 3 laying hens and 5 petites tweens. We've been on the site here a lot, reading up, learning, etc. but today, my hen Paint passed because she couldn't breath. :( She was an Araucana and very sweet. I took her to the vet asap and he thought she might have lung cancer. He also mentioned infection. All the other girls are looking good.
Sooooo, that's me - sorry to introduce myself on a low note. We all love our girls so much and take very good care of them. It's a sad day. :(
