    Sweet Cheeks (EE) is acting funny. This morning she let Turkey (another EE) chase her all around the chicken yard. I've never seen Turkey pick on anyone before. She did it about 6 times then I put Sweet Cheeks into Blind Tiny's run because I had to leave the house for a couple of hours and Blind Tiny and Sweet Cheeks get along. When I got back Sweet Cheeks was standing in Tiny's house looking like she would fall over asleep at any second. I grabbed her up and brought her into the house.

    I wrapped her in a towel and rocked her to sleep. Then I took her into my bedroom and feed her some bread. Now she's in the bathroom sleeping.

    Sweet Cheeks has a bit of a runny nose. Could she have a cold?

    Blind Tiny has been sneezing and has had a runny nose for about a week now.

    Sounds like she has a cold. I keep them inside with a light and make sure they are drinking plenty of fluids. You can also give her drops of VetRx in her mouth, under her wings and on her nose to help her stuffy nose. When she puts her head under her wings at night, the VetRx will act like Vapo-Rub and clear those sinuses up.
    I hope she feels better soon!

    Sweet Cheeks is in the bathroom just enjoying the peace and quite. Blind Tiny, unfortunately, freaks out when she's in an unfamiliar place so I can't bring her in. [​IMG] It stresses her out to much.

    I hope they get better soon. [​IMG]

    I've been checking on Sweet Cheeks every hour, she seems to be very comfortable.

    She's not pooping! Nothing! I checked her vent and it's not blocked with anything. She hasn't pooped since I brought her into the house at about 2:00 yesterday.
