    actually, the subject line just about says it all. she also spends a lot of time sitting under the heat lamp. i'll check out allotment.org's poo page, but i don't recall seeing this before.

    thanks.

    Just wondering if she has an infection, kidney could be one? Some antibiotic treatment wouldn't hurt. Someone else here might be able to suggest which type is best but if nothing else, I'd say something broad spectrum.

    i looked on allotment.org's poo page, but didn't see anything quite like lucy's -- it really does look like guacamole.

    she doesn't roost, preferring to sit under the heat lamp. most troubling is that she doesn't eat.

    any other ideas?
