    For those of you who are experienced with hen welfare and have been kind enough to talk to me about my Rosalie j have an update and a question.
    For the last 10 days Rosalie had not been eating and drinks only when we give her fluid by the syringe.since being on meds for a yeast infection she began to drink but would always vomit fluid when she bent forward.she has taken a little egg yolk but now seems to be picking put not swallowing.she stands still and lifeless for most of the day and when she does try to move her legs give way and she falls unable to get up without help everytime.she closes her eyes constantly and makes no sound.
    Is it time to ask vet to end her suffering? She has lost so much weight you can feel all her bones.she weighs 1.2kg and is 3 years old.
