Thank you 🤗🤗 I'm not sure how quickly the pain will go away. We found out today that I broke it in two places, the doctor will be putting a metal plate and pins in my wrist tomorrow morning.
O Sue. We will pray for you. I'm sorry this had to happen to you. :hugs :hugs

Medh has been to the vet again. She is not a well chicken. Temp; bit of blood in her droppings, hugely swollen belly & not really eating or drinking.

I can't afford x~rays which might show a blockage or tumour ~ I just don't have unlimited funds or even a regular income ~ but probably not Ascites . Possibly a touch of cocci brought about by whatever else is ailing her. Possibly egg peritonitis. She is on a broad spectrum antibiotic & the vet gave her a shot of something to make her feel better.

She is a lovely little chicken & was super well behaved throughout her examination. Given she's a Campine that's almost @ miracle status!

The vet will bring something over to treat everyone for cocci. I had terrible trouble getting Amprolium last time & this time the Littlies got treated 1st before I ran out.

My vet is really nice & enjoys talking chicken. :D Last time I showed her my new acquisitions & like most people she was charmed. They are very pretty chickies! She keeps chickens herself, always a bonus, & wanted to know where I had acquired mine. I didn't have the information on me so wrote it down for her this time & she was thrilled I had remembered her interest & got the information for her. She has finally talked her hubby into building her a nice big coop ...🤣🤣🤣...don't we all know this story...& hopes to have pictures to show me next visit. So despite my worry about Medh it was a really nice visit & she's very good with my chickens. Gentle & doesn't spook them.
Oh no, Medh! A hugely swollen belly, but not ascites? Did the vet attempt to tap her belly to make sure there isn’t fluid in there? Is she laying?
