I have to say something here. For many new users, the blunt and straightforward way many long-time users on here answer questions seems rude. I have read many answers that have taken me aback, because they are rather as though the OP ought to have known the answer, or if they ask a second time different way (likely because they didn't understand the answer given) they are treated as though they are being difficult. Go back and read many posts asking for help lately as though you are a new, inexperienced, frightened and upset chicken-owner! It's not the nice, helpful way a person distressed ought to be treated, many times, and while I'm not saying people ought to sugar-coat, if you are feeling as though you might get snippy in your answer, *just don't answer* I'd rather have a vacuum of silence than be made to feel as though I'm being condescended to and made to feel bad about a mistake I may have made in an attempt to save a loved pet. This is not an attack on any one person- it's something I've wanted to say based on answers in many threads lately, and it makes me feel awful for those newcomers who just need help.
