    I have a 2 month old silkie pullet that has come down with phnemonia. She isnt doing well. Im trying everything I can for her

    I am asking for prayers...

    I am quite upset and I don't know what else I can do except wait.
    I hope I will still find her alive in the morning.

    She is very special to me... And its hard to keep the tears in

    Don't keep the tears in, dear. Candle lit for you little one, and may the best outcome for your fluffybutt be swift. Hope she makes it, but if not, Heaven has a beautiful, sweet welcoming committee when she crosses over. Hugs,

    I cant stop crying [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have been giving her penicillin shots to help fight it and a heat lamp to keep her warm.

    I sooo hope she makes it by morning.

    She is still talking to me when I open her cage. But she just sits there and her eyes don't open. I tried feeding her warm food and water a few hours ago but I think that tired her out. Now I am afraid to even touch her.

    Chickenwhisperer123 I am so sorry for your loss. Its so hard to loose something even when its that young.
    You can cry with me if you want....

    I am sure I won't get any sleep tonight

    Thankyou so much. I am letting tears out every second now.

    I dont want her to cross the pearly gates quite yet. I will fight for her. I will only let her go when she reaches old age and when I know she finnaly needs a good long rest.

    I am soooo sorry too hear that. It is hard too loose somthing that you like!

    If she is still able to eat and drink try giving her some Garlica or orange juice in with her Chicken feed. It helped one of my Darlings![​IMG] i dont know what else you could do![​IMG]

    This might help i've learned alot from reading books [​IMG]

    even though I am only 11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol I hope your darling gets better:hit
