sick chicken

well, she lived through the night...
not sure what that means.

one of the buffs appears to have egg yolk peritonitis. (how do i know? first hand.)
i noticed it after coming home from vacation. so i soaked her in a warm bath, cleaned her, oiled her up and snuggled her into a towel under a heat lamp.

i have been giving her a watery cornmeal mash with lots of garlic in it.

last night i thought i might wake to a dead chicken.
but this morning she was looking a little better. so we shall see.

don't really know what kind of outcome to expect. at least she is warm and calm.
