    Yesterday and last night were sad days at my house. We had a Buff Silkie named Snoop Dogg that was about 8 months old start getting sick the first of the week. She would just lay around was nowhere near as active as my other Silkie and just kinda waddled around like she was walking on her legs instead of her feet. We started feeding vitamins to try to help her out but she just kept getting worse. After a day or two I noticed that when she tried to walk she would take about two step and fall on her side. She did this for about two days before she stopped trying to walk at all. She stopped eating and she stopped drinking and she was struggling just to breathe. So after about a week suffering my poor Snoop Dogg is no more. My little sister cried half the night. She loved that bird and so did I. I'm gonna miss that bird.

    I'm so sorry Zack. That is really sad. It is always so sad to lose a loved animal, and clearly you did all you could to save her. [​IMG] Hugs to you and your sister both.

    Yeah we gonna miss her. We told my sister that her name was Snoop Dogg as a joke so she wouldn't name her fluffy or goldy.

    it might have been Mareks. Keep a close eye on your other birds.

    any signs or symptoms the other one expressed... if it shows in this one you may have an issue. i try not to get attached to the little ones until maybe they have feathered out and are less vulnerable... it can be hard. sorry for your loss. hope your other birds do fine.. [​IMG]
