Hi all, One of my feathered babies had been poorly since the weekend. She was alert and talking but lethargic and spending a lot of time in the coop. Yesterday she was refusing all food so I took her to a chicken vet this morning. The vet said she had an infection from an internally laid egg and was going to try and fight it with antibiotics. We did the penacillin injection and almost immediately she went down hill. After about 3 or 4 minutes she started to fit violently and died. The vet said its mosr likely a reaction to the penacillin. Claret was an extremely special hen, all my girls are my babies and she was the last of our original flock. I'm devastated and can't quite get my head around the fact that it's what we thought would help that has killed her. I feel guilty for taking her to the vets and for agreeing to the treatment plan. I didn't know the risk and have paid the ultimate price. I can't help but feel guilty for taking her this morning, it was a quick but horrible death and I don't think she could ever forgive me for it.
