We have a Buttercup named Buddy that was hatched by a hen of ours a year ago. Buddy has never seemed quite "right" but got around fine, with ups and downs. She had crook neck, so we've been giving her vitamins every night, which helped a lot. For the past week, Buddy's health has been declining fast. She can't really walk, I hand feed and water her, and she's in the house. She is alert and tries to be active, but her quality of life is nill, IMO. I told DH that we need to put her down. He's looking online for some cure all that I know doesn't exist. He looks at me like I just want to "rid" us of the "hassle". I have tears streaming down my face right now. I want nothing more than to have Buddy jump up like everything is fine but my head tells me it will not happen. PLEASE... How to I make him understand? My heart is breaking for her and I can't see her this way anymore.
