    We quarantined her and cleaned up her diahhrea in the pen. She has been in an enclosed run her whole life. She's in a box looking near death. I do not thing she can be saved. She was apparently moving slowly a few weeks ago. Anything I should do for the other girls in the flock -- 7 chickens and 2 ducks. :eek:

    Is blood coming out of her beak or nose ? Any respiratory problems ?
