    It's worth a try, however this bird definitely has a fungal infection going on somewhere in her body. I have seen this same green diarrhea in birds with slow and sour crops. Her crop is not slow nor is it sour and nothing is impacted. This is why I am so confused with this. Green diarrhea can be some sort of internal cancer which I am starting to think is going on and this fungal infection is from her weakened immune system.

    I too am cooking extras for her and she eats fairly well but the weight is still coming off of her.

    So, just waiting on the person coming to look at my mare - got a text just now that they are still about an hour late, but they did reveal that the reason was they had to stop to fix the trailer lights - so they have already broken rule #1 of horse shopping (as I had hoped they would) and are bringing the trailer......and since it will be getting fairly dark when they get here I am taking this to mean they are ok with not being able to do much (if any) of a test ride on her so sounds like maybe they are serious about just wanting her no matter what [​IMG] If/when she sells I figure I can be nice and let DH get the toy he was eyeballing the other day so he can't say much when I take the rest of the $$$ to the swap on the 10th or the show/sale the weekend after that, lol.

    Amen - we had cockatiels years back and that has forever cured me of any desire to have birds in the house (outside of the few weeks new batches of chicks spend in the bathtub, lol)

    Mutt Farm Chillin' With My Peeps

    Hi. Listen, If I'm being too talkalot on this thread someone please pm me! I feel like the loudmouth that showed up at a party Ya know, the "who the hell invited them" kind. Anyhoo...I wanted to tell a story, something nice that happened today, so I thought I'd tell it to ya'll. I sure hope this is ok, cause I envy those that live where I wish I did.
    I live 60 miles from Los Angeles, couple miles out of the "City". I have 1.5 acres, witch is huge in these parts. In the 20 years I've lived here, I've seen the orange groves where I used to go riding turn into city slicker livestock hating subdivisions. Same for the dairy farms. They closed all the horse trails, so now I'd have to trailer to ride. Crime has gotten scary. Druggies and gangs are moving in. Home invasion robberies, car jackings, petty theft, burglary, Meth and heroine dealers at the end of my road, I never dreamed I'd live somewhere that I was afraid to go to town after dark. I thought this was my last home. Nope. I've been praying for the day we could get outta here, live around folks like I usta know.
    Still with me? So last week, a new client came to have a look to board her little dog. They're traveling back to Korea. She saw my colorful eggs on the counter and her eyes lit up! She's very hard to understand, but told me all about the farm she was raised on in Korea, her animals and chickens and how much she missed it. I offered her a dz eggs. This morning, she drove over to give me this beautiful basket of fruit from her trees as gratitude for the eggs from my hens. Dunno why that is so mind changing and profound to me, why it's made me so hopeful and happy today, but it did. [​IMG]

    Governor Haley has already declared a State of Emergency for the state of South Carolina.

    I am very glad that I am in the western part of the state.

    It really warms the heart when people respond with compassion. And sometimes does take us for surprise when they do! Nice basket of fruit!!

    I hope that hurricane stays clear of you! Looks like it is going to stay along the coast and not come ashore until further north.
