    1 1/2 year old Comet started acting lethargic last night. Today she's sitting when she should be exploring with the other girls. When I picked her up there was a mucus-y waste under her. I massaged her crop and then gave her some bread with olive oil. Almost immediately she went to the bathroom. It was runny and it had a piece of some weird gristle (like you have on chicken that you buy and cook). I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions?
