Re: Weight loss over time

I'll make an appt for bloodwork. I'm also buying a scale so I can better monitor her weight.

The "free" is only for nail trimming and wing clipping. I just asked them to weigh her while I was...

This is Addy. I've had her for about 6 mos now. I was told she is 12 to 14 years old.

Re: More Sammy weirdness

I'm so sorry for what you are going through. That sounds incredibly hard for all of you. Sammy will come around eventually, as will the rest of your flock. Again, I'm so sorry. :(
