    Does anyone know if the antiobiotics need to be in fridge? I had to fly out of there to get home because it's dark and chickens are out and the vet closed

    Areas of concern were the fluid in crop--bacterial/yeast infection. She has her winter feathers but is molting slightly and that grit in her stomach. The antiobiotics should cover anything.

    I should mention that my comment about that being an impressive list is not derogatory, I think your vet is trying to cover all bases. Not that it matters, but I approve.

    Hope she is back to normal real soon. So glad you have a vet that could see her.

    My Vet told me to throw out eggs through 3 days after antibiotic dose. Wishing her a speedy recovery!

    This vet would not say how long with the eggs because she was treated as a pet which opens up the door for way more treatment then if she was considered "livestock".

    This vet is 8 minutes from my house, so very convienent.

    It's been a long time since I have been able to cuddle with Sunni and she was very accepting of it. I kept telling her that I loved her and I saw a hint of that side eye.

    I was happy with the suggestions made by the vet. Acclimating her back outside might be on the difficult side because next week my work location changes and it will be longer days. Putting her outside in the 30s from a 70 degree house is going to be rough. The vet said in some cases ducks sick in the winter very well could end up in the house until spring.

    She is staying in until she is 100%, im not taking any chances.
