    Our "Floppy Girl" is sick. Her cone is more floppy than usual and it is deep red/ maroon like color. When I took my girls bananas and grapes she did not rush over as she usually would. When we picked her up she threw up all runny yellow. She is also breathing with her mouth wide open.[​IMG]. Any ideas?

    Dark colored comb can indicate reduced oxygen level in the blood. Heart attack or obstruction in the throat (either physical or infectious situation) can be causes.
