We found a vet to see April.She has Ascites(Abdominocentesis)Drained a pint of fluid from her.She has a liver proplem.The fluid will return.Right now she is back to her perky self.She is taking 25mg of Rimadyl daily.The really sad part is after she was drained and back to normal size.The vet found a lump.She also has cancer.So right now she is the most spoiled chicken in the world.And I plan to keep it that way as long as she is comfortable.
I learn about life from these girls.

Rusty, sorry to hear about your chicken. Sounds like she is a special girl and you hate to lose her. Best of luck, Lori
