    Constipated Roo? Pics

    Water freezing

    I know that I am spoiled with the horizontal nipples, as long as it's not freezing. (My mistake for not setting it up right to start with) Hauling water is for the birds. Lol

    Help! Infected swollen leg [PIC GRAPHIC]

    It sounds like ther is pus in there. It will have to be removed. You will be amazed how quickly it will heal after you remove the pus. Anything else will just prolong her suffering.

    Help! Infected swollen leg [PIC GRAPHIC]
