SYMPTOMS: Ellie is in hospital on baytril and fluids since 4:30 p.m. yesterday, Labor Day. Will find out at 9 a.m. this morning - Tuesday - whether she's still alive (vet told me to call at 9). I think she began watery discharge Sunday (didn't know it then but it retrospect found a very wet spot where I remember her sitting). She did lay an egg that day. Yesterday - Labor Day - she was fine in the a.m. - playing, digging - but by afternoon was lethargic - head drooping, eyes closed, more watery discharge like pee - small amounts of brown poo. One spoon's worth of yellow stuff not at same time as watery stuff. The vet does not know what's going on and I've been reading things half the night and don't know myself. When I talk to him at 9, if dear Ellie is still alive, and if the vet still mystified, I need to be able to help determnine what to do - what the likely suspects are. Help incredibly appreciated. Other details below, but this is the main stuff. Thx. JJ Labor Day: Some of you have come to know BJ roo. He's endured many losses, most recently Annie toward the end of July. I was able to get him a friend that same night - Ellie - from the same place Annie was from. These birds came from MMH not quite 2 years ago. Annie died of an apparent heart attack. Because BJ spent time with these birds in late 2006/2007 and never took ill, nor did they, it seemed like the safest place to draw from and so, Ellie is with BJ now. Ellie is now in hiding and looks miserable. She did lay an egg yesterday but it was slightly odd - a bit of extra "crumbs" at one end and a bit of a kind of translucent look at either end, tho the shell for the most part seemed nice and solid. She has constant access to oyster shell and layer feed. BJ's game bird maintenance food is also available to them and I do see her eating it sometimes. Hopefully she eats enough oyster shell to compensate for the lower calcium in that food. She free ranges hours each day and eats all manner of other things and gets a little fresh fruit and veggies and sunflower seed from yours truly. Normally looks the picture of health, as Annie did. Avia Charge 2000 in their water. ACV once a month or so - no Avia that day. Their coop is spotless, with fresh wood shavings always. Did the bath thing, and Tums this afternoon. Understandably, she appreciated neither.She's not in her normal nest but rather kind of hiding in a sheltered dark place so I know she doesn't feel well. I just can't have her die now too. 1. She is young and deserves to live 2. There's no place I know of to get another friend quickly for BJ and he plummets extremely quickly with loss. And I could add 3. If I spend one more minute on chicken crises, it will be the last straw with my jobs. They just don't understand. But I know you do. Any thoughts most welcome. BJ is standing right be her side, all worried. JJ She is standing but closing her eyes - broad daylight.. Why today? It's Labor Day. No vets are open, much less avian ones.
