    Thanks dear. It is a very hard decision. But I think it is for the best. It’s not fair to keep birds that keep getting sick. This morning, my silkie who I was taking care of for the past day or so, was dead. I’m not surprised, but it reinforced my decision. I raised her from a chick, and she suffered. I won’t make that mistake again.

    Yes, I am going to euthanize one of the birds that is sick and send it in. I am going to make some phone calls tomorrow to find exactly where to send it, so that I make sure she is tested for the right illnesses. I’m 99% sure that it is Coryza, simply from the consistency of the birds becoming ill, and the foul odor coming from a couple of the girls.
