    SO I have my two birds in isolation.....Per Cloverleaf farms...giving them duramyacin for 14 days...how do I water the birds if they are in dog carriers?? where do I get the little metal clamps that hold the plastic cups in the show cages??

    @ CLF can you give me the name of that vet again??

    thanks again..this is the second time she has saved our hens[​IMG]
    this December one of our new girls had a stuffed crop and CLF gave sound advice of no food or water and warm olive oil and massage the crop, it took 2 days to cure her..but she's a healthy little thing now

    Petco sells cups with little hooks in three packs. Some pet stores have them for the inside of kennels for cheap, but many are overpriced. I like the little white petco cups.

    Some use yogurt cups with 2 's' hooks from the hardware store. That works fine, but is a bit hard to change each time.
