    I don't know if she was tested for flu, just that she was treated for flu.

    Lindzie is hoping what ever it is is not related to her drain tube.....

    Enola sounds like you've been going through a lot. Hope all gets better for you.

    @rIrs roost -- I am so sorry. As has been suggested, placing some marbles or stones in the water "tray" as well as raising the entire thing up to where the lip is at chest height (and continue to raise as they grow) can help with this (raising it has the added advantage of helping to keep the water from being filled with bedding). They do have a tendency to fall asleep at the drop of a hat in the first week or two and often do so standing up and fall over, so that may be what happened here.
    Another option would be to use a nipple water system in your brooder.

    shes in a good place for drs. if it was the flu it would take a while to get over and to me it sounds like each time she went in she was just a little better ? aka no diarrhea ?

    Red, I am sorry for your loss.

    How old was your Silkie?

    Yes, Red, as I say over and over, there is never a dull moment in my life. Just one crisis after another it seems.....

    I am hoping to move to PA. My daughter and I are looking for a place for us to move to. I can't stand being away from my family for another year......
