    This is "BUTTON" she has never opened her eyes on her own.
    & is failing to thrive. Please keep reading, don't stop now

    In my last post about her I took the advice and started her on antibiotic
    eye drops. that was a couple of days ago & still nothing.

    [​IMG] Sorry, she won't hold any stiller for these poses. I can swear to the fact, there is nothing in her eyes or anything crusty. but maybe a slight
    "dullness"

    I still give her vit enhanced water w/electrolytes through a mini syringe. however,
    today she's had a harder time of it so I thickened it ever so slightly with fine ground
    flax seed and a couple drops of syrup to give her body something sustainable.

    I fear if she doesn't open her eyes soon or can't see she will starve to death slowly.
    I can't put grain starter down into her gullet & it's so empty.
    She has no clue about pecking for food because she can't or wont open her eyes to learn.
    She does however, move her head to sounds much like a deaf person would.
    I'm quite attached now. [​IMG] I'm VERY Worried
