It's just a matter of time but as I'm sitting here sobbing trying to find the best way to send her off without suffering I'm wondering if I should just let nature take it's course or help her along. I've never had to do this but I thought I couldn't cut off my BO comb after it was mostly ripped off by a couple of amorous roos and I did it. So anyway, "June Allyson" is in the "hospital cage" and has been actively dying for about 24 hours. I just keep thinking she'll go anytime but I just checked on her and she is still breathing although extremely slowly. She doesn't appear to be conscious. I'm thinking baking soda and vinegar. I know there's lots on here on that method and lots of differing opinions. I can't shoot her, break her neck, or chop off her head. I am completely in turmoil about this. I thought of taking her to the vet but don't want to stress her out and the chicken vet is quite a ways away. help?
