I went to an avian vet this morning. He felt inside her oviduct and said he felt small masses. He said they could be eggs, tumors or both. He could not expel them but tried his best. He said he needs to do an exploratory operation to to take the masses out to try to save her. So far I have paid $300 in vet bills. I was calculating an operation may cost in the order of perhaps $500 which I could have afforded but the cost could be upwards of $1200 (could be a couple hundred less)! I just don't know what to do. She is my pet and although I don't have this type of money on hand I don't want her to die either. Did anybody ever have internal problems like this (tumors)? Did you have your chicken operated on? Did they survive the operation? Any answers or suggestions at all would be so appreciated. I am so upset and depressed by the thought of all of this. I just don't know what to do. Please note: I know people were looking for updates on Perdue and I am sorry for not posting in the past two weeks but my computer crashed and I had to have it sent out to repaired. I just got it back yesterday.
