    The girls were all fine this morning and just gone to put them away for bed and one is in the house really loud rattling breathing and runny nose (but only slight clear discharge).

    Does she have a cold and is there anything i can give her??

    I can tell she is off colour and she is normally the skitty one who always runs away from us and she just let me pick her up to have a look at her and clean her nose.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


    PS she is an ex-bat rhode island x warren approximately 2 yrs old. Fed on pellets and left overs - green and fruit and some bread.

    One eye seems to be closing as well.
