    I think our hen, Lucy will be headed there soon. She's my little girl with the crossed beak and we thought she'd be OK as far as eating goes. Well, she's been looking more and more dreadful everyday. Her comb is flopped over and crummy looking. She's flighty and skinny; just not doing well. We're not able to fix her beak, it's a deformity and all. I think DH is going to sharpen the axe today or tomorrow.

    I'm pretty bummed about the whole thing. I'm kind of attached to each of my girls. We gave made her last few months very nice indeed.

    So sorry that Lucy isn't doing well. It is so nice of you to try to save her and keep her comfortable. I also tried to save a baby scissor beak chick, s/he tried so hard to eat but couldn't. So sad, but trying to help them is such a nice thing to do. I hope she can feel the sun on her feathers in her last days, it seems to be what they like best.
