    Hi there~
    I have a serama hen who has grass in her intestines, I've been giving her enemas, but she isn't any better, in fact, shes worse. She has lost weight and has sunken eyes, and she can't hardly poop. The thing is, my serama rooster is very attached to her and will be sad if I put her down. What would you do?

    Thanks

    You could try givng her mineral oil orally with a syringe. Might help to clear the blockage. Best of luck. I hope she pulls through.
