The vet called this morning to say that she was doing well but still producing fluid. They want to keep her in until Thursday! Now i am worried that Laverne and Shirley will bully her when she returns home. Laverne is missing Babs and i hope they will be friends again. Will call the vet later and go and visit her. Have grapes and 'chatty chicken' magazine for the poor patient ;0)
Jase washed and cleaned the cars today, whilst I harvested the sprouts, turned over the compost bins, dug over a raised bed, planted some winter veg and planted up strawberry runners for next year. Laverne and Shirley enjoyed the sprout leaves, shredding them like a scene from Jurassic Park!
The veg garden is looking much tidier now, but still lots to do. Jase is away on a 3 day trip tomorrow, so i will blitz it then.
Jase is recovering from a cold, which he kindly passed on to me. Woke up with a really sore throat this morning. The magical lemsip should do the trick!
Off to pick more sweet peas now!
Back from the vets. She bought Babs out wrapped in a towel and took us through to a private room! She looks so much better, red comb and alert. I gave her some mealworms and she loved them. We discussed her treatment and decided that it was best to leave her at the vets for a few more days. She has to take antibiotics for a couple of days still, but then, if she improves, she can come home. *smiles all round*
The vet said 'I'll leave you two alone for a bit' (it really made me laugh when she said this) so i gave her a cuddle, wrapped her up and took her through to her cage (the chicken not the vet)!
The bill so far is £90, which includes treatment, room, board and antibiotics. I haven't seen the room service or pay tv bill yet, but it doesn't matter.
