Marigold

Post by amber66 »

Hello Hen pals, Lily signing in.
Would all the hen pals send their special get well vibes to our comrade Marigold as she is a very poorly girl and mum is very worried about her.
Her comb is looking a bit blue now and she has not eaten all day. She has had a drink of her special medicine water but when mum picked her up she started to be sick and brought it all up again and sounded like she was very chesty.
Lily signing out for now.

Hello Henpals and Mummies and Daddies.
Thank you for your get well wishes for Marigold. I will pass them on to her and i am sure that will make her feel loads better.
Mum let her in the garden in the sunshine yesterday and we had a good chat through the wire as she is not allowed near us as she is so poorly.
She told me that she doesn't feel like eating or drinking and is all puffed up. Mum also syringed some of the medicine water down her beak as she is so worried but when mum picked her up the water came back up and she started to choke. She said mum tipped her up side down until it stopped but she still sounds a bit gurggley.
Please keep sending the get well vibes as i am sure she really needs them.
Signing out Lily.

Hello Sandy.
I made the dreaded phone call to the vets Monday morning. The appointment was made for 11.50am. I think she must of heard me as she started to eat a bit of cucumber and drink her water so i cancelled the appointment.
Yesterday morning she was back to not eating again so i made another appointment just to get her checked out as i don't want her to suffer and again about an hour before we were due to go she polished off 2 halves of a corn on the cob.
The vet checked her over and said her crop had food in it, her temperature was down and he could not hear breathing sounds so her air sacs were ok.
She has not touched any food today as yet, not even the corn but i am hopeful even though she is not out of the woods yet. (fingers crossed). >fi<

Hello Bob.
They are out to worry us silly and break the bank balance.
I have spent a lot of time at the vets either with the chickens or dogs over the last week!

Hi , Trouble is a lot to spend ......
No car driving so its all a pain to get anywhere . Dont like asking others to do my jobs.
Still needs must .
Do you have a vet retailer or a lone organisation.
It seems prices are not standard . Also they charge smaller ammounts for a chicken (value to worth? ) . I suppose if no competion then the rates go up also.
No way 2 dogs ,3 cats , 43 chickens , fish? can be insured ,cost more than the vet bills.
I think they appreciate the care for sure.
Hopefully the summer will make them all feel better .

Hello Karen and Floks.
Your special get well vibes have worked and Marigold seems a lot better thank you.
She went out to free range with the girls yesterday. Molly doesn't take any notice of her, Lily gives her the odd peck just to remind her who is boss, but Ruby (who was bottom hen) is being a right mare towards her at times.
I put her back in the run with them for about 20 minutes yesterday evening but Marigold stayed behind the bush in the run and seemed a bit quiet, she did not want to eat the treats with the others but did eat when she came back in.
She stayed in last night but i am going to put her out free ranging in the garden again today after she has eaten her breakfast as i was a bit worried she would not get to eat yesterday but hopefully she can stay in the coop over night tonight.
Amber.

Hello Sandy.
Marigold is back to her old self thank you. It was touch and go at times but she is back with the others now. Ruby is still having the odd peck and chasing her but it seems to be improving on a daily basis.
I must admit i didn't think she would make it at times so i love just watching her being a chicken again.
Amber.
