    Hello out there, first time user but often read here, I need to ask please for some guidance, our girl Iris is rather ill. We inherited her 9 months ago and was already not laying any more. Iris is off eating now for 4 days and sleeps a lot her poop is runny and whiteish slightly green in colour. She is sluggish and laboured breathing with eyes shut, I've had to clean her up around her bottom as you can imagine it sticks to her feathers. She just sits and looks grey around her eyes and doesn't make a sound... Poor girl is just miserable..

    Void where prohibited.
    That sounds awful. Might have to put her down is my guess.
    If she's miserable, I don't think it's right to try and prolong it. But what do I know?
