goodnight daisey girl :-(

Posted on February 10, 2018 at 6:34 AM Comments comments (4)
 We are extremely sad to have had to say goodbye to our beloved cat DAISEY yesterday evening. She was 15 years old and our absolute baby. We rescued her around 13 years ago and she has been the boss of this family ever since - a graceful gentle adorable girl who will be in our hearts forever and is bitterly missed by us all. She started to decline in August last year and was diagnosed with thyroid problems but sadly the medication wasn't enough and she gradually got worse loosing lots of weight and finally on Tuesday 6th February after having lumps appear on her belly in just over a week was diagnosed with mammary tumours (cat breast cancer) we was advised by our vet that she would have a matter of days as this is an aggressive fast growing cancer - being our baby we didn't want to see her suffer any further, and yesterday evening she very dignifiedly went to sleep in our arms.

  GOODNIGHT DAISEYGIRL - SWEET DREAMS BABY X-X-X :-(

Sad News :-(

                                                         Sad News       
 We have some sad news today, one of our ladies (hen) suffered a prolapse today and sadly had to be put to sleep.       
 This can be a common problem during moulting and in Hybrids . We were told by the vets today that they have seen a large increase in this problem lately -  around 20 cases  in just the last few weeks!
 
 We have never seen this problem in all the years we have had chickens and she will be sadly missed.
 
 A prolapse is when the insides of the chickens vent protrude outside of the vent, it can cause the other chickens to peck at it and cause pain and discomfort to the chicken and prove fatal. Firstly you need to separate the chicken from the others, you can try to ease the insides back into the Vent with warm water or honey but the chances of that being successful are very slim, and certainly not pleasant - for either party. We tried this to no avail and called the Vets for help, they said they had tried with another chicken for two weeks to fix the prolapse, they couldn't stitch due to egg laying, and the chicken sadly had to be put to sleep. If a chicken does pull through this, it will most likely happen again.
 
 Always take time to have a good look at your hens, and if in doubt call the Vets for help and advice. 
 
                    Its been a sad day for us at Eltham Hen House   RIP "W" :-(
