    Hi [​IMG] Welcome To BYC

    Can you post some photos of her?
    What type of food/treats do you feed?
    Is she sneezing, coughing, have runny eyes, mucous?

    Try offering her some poultry vitamins and watch to see that she is eating well. Dry dusty bedding and feed can sometimes cause sneezing - how often does she sneeze?

    thank you so much for replying. Penelope died yesterday at about 5 PM. Just like that. I think it must have been a genetic defect and then an internal complication with the heart/chest. She was normal for her almost 4 weeks of life but simply did not grow as her peers from her litter.
    Thanks for caring!
