    [​IMG]I think she's saying she loves her chickens! I talk to mine like that too. Oh, and I believe MayMay was really sick before.

  9. L:OLOL... sorry guys... I forget I am a moron at times. [​IMG] MayMay is the name of my rescue chicken. She has had horrible up's and downs really bad the last few years. Her nickname at times is 'pumkin nut' She is a nutcase, thus the nut, and my 'pumpkin'. just ended up nicknamed 'pumpkin nut'. the lovebuttons who know where the heck it came from. wow, looking at that I really am a wierd one that I am not suprised no one can understand me!!!!!

    but yea, in an easy way of saying I love my babies.....[​IMG]

    She had been bleeding really bad blood clots out of her eye for a few days, severe weight loss, comb pale, flopped, etc.


    Then she got hit with fly strike and was really hit hard with maggots. I really didnt think she would make it. more weight loss, loss of apetite, lethargic, and just really gave up.


    Then hit with tape worms really bad. too.....


    Such a miracle girl. She has some sort of respiratory disease that comes and goes over the year and just really knocks her down BADLY. I have learned to live with it, and notice the signs and symptoms when they hit now. Usually, I am now able to get a shot of Tylan 200 in her, get her the extra nutrition and nurse her back up to 100% over a few weeks. what a chore, and I feel so bad for her and what ever she has/had, but she's worth it. A real trooper of a girl. And she has never lain me an egg.....
