    I don't know what was wrong in the first place, but yesterday her feet were swollen, she was extremely lethargic, and she wouldn't stand up, eat, or drink, and so I isolated her. This morning she had nasal discharge, clear ooze coming from her mouth, and a swollen abdomen, so I gave her Duramycin-10. I also gave her a bath to see if she was eggbound and palpated internally, but there was no egg or eggshells. Just now, she began squawking loudly, and at the same time had a seizure, and then flopped over and died. Does anyone know what this might have been, or if it is contagious?
