Done! I can’t believe she is still going! She received about 5-7mls of that fluid, more than usual, still droopy, and latest poop...

Good. That ought to get her through the night. In the morning, check her crop to see if it's empty. If yeast is starting up in the crop, we will need to treat that or it will be like a rear attack and could bring her down.

When you tempt her with some food, see if you can get a probiotic down her. She can use some good microbes in her digestive system.

I will check, but considering she hasn’t eaten, it will probably be empty. We have been giving her probiotics via syringe, for the last three days.

I am sorry to say, Kessi passed late last night. We were giving her a last dose of fluids and she passed in our arms 😞 At least she is not suffering anymore.

That's so sad. She was so sick, though, really on the brink of death from the start of the weekend. She sure seemed to be willing to hang in there and fight to live. You deserve a lot of credit for fighting so hard for her.

She was a fighter for sure. She was the top of the pecking order and a bossy boots, but so much personality. Thank you so much for all your help and support. I am glad I decided to join 😊
