    I lost my first chicken last night. [​IMG] Nellie my BA had to be put down because she had been prolapsing for a month. She is the black one in the front in my avatar. [​IMG] I will alwasy remember you Nellie. Im glad she isn't suffering anymore though. RIP girl. I love you.

    Sorry to hear that. Sounds like she had a chronic weakness that just wasn't correcting itself.

    Thanks guys. [​IMG] She was messed up from the beginning. She went through egg binding, vent gleet, and prolapse. So If she ever recovered from prolapse she would've probably gotten something else. She had just turned a year old and was going through her molt.
