    Someone told me that putting this request for help here might get more response then where I had this posted.

    I have a golden buff. She was fine last Wednesday morning and then in the afternoon she as lying on the floor of the coop with her wings spread out. I took her to the vet and she had a high fever 107. The vet gave her an antibiotic shot and then gave me pills to give her. It has been 5 days now and she will walk some but really not eating much and not drinking a lot of water. I have been using a syringe to give her water so that I know she is getting some water. Has anyone ever had this happen? I have looked over the diseases and she really doesn't seem to have all the signs of the ones I have read. HELP!!! Thanks Baygirl
