    hi all. one of my bbw is acting very sickly. scrunching her head in and closing her eyes and standing all by herself. she would not eat this morning or take water. lethargic when she does walk.

    she was perfectly fine yesterday. i let everybody out yesterday and she was frolicking and playing in the snow along with everybody else.

    please help. tia

    Buy some SuperBoost and treat their water immediately. If there is any sickness, this will help greatly to a full recovery for all of them. If one is sick and you don't know why, could be she ate something bad in the environment you have them in. If one did, chances are the others may have as well. SuperBoost is a precaution against anything else that pops up. Treat them three day to be sure but if she's laying, you should not eat the eggs. Give them to the cats or something.
