    I lost my Queenie today. I am at a loss as to what. I am thinking eggbound. I unfortunately was at work all day, came home tonite to her in her favorite spot, pale comb, limp. She was flipping her tail feathers like she was trying to poo.
    I quickly went inside to google , to try find a solution, or what it could be.
    went out 10 min. later. she was gone.

    always has to be the favorite doesn't it??
    If I had been home, I might have caught it in time to save her.

    She was fine this morning.

    It happened so quick. I feel bad knowing, she probably suffered the whole time I was at work today. Darn work.
    at least I got to say goodbye to her. She died 10 minutes after I did.

    I have no other SLW's. and I don't want to bring new birds onto my property. Trying to keep it all homegrown. homehatched.

    She was a really pretty girl. What breed?

    Please don't blame yourself for what happened, you did everything you could for her. I have no idea what could have been wrong with her, but it went so fast that I doubt you could have done much for her even if you had been home.

    She had a good loving home which you provided for her.
