Amy enjoying the new fish pond
It’s been a rough week. Just as soon as we saw such a dramatic improvement in Amy (which made us so happy) there arose some complications – laying. Good news, bad news sort of whiplash. Good news she was looking and doing so much better but it’s been ages since she’s laid – it’s like not exercising and then having to use muscles that have been hiatus for months.
She hadn’t laid an egg since her injury last fall but with the warmer weather she laid her first egg on Monday and had some complications. Jordanne and I assisted her – coaxed the egg out but now there’s yet another egg and that’s having a bit more trouble coming out. We are trying everything we know – oil, warm baths, steam, liquid calcium.
We knew she would lay one day but didn’t expect so much trouble – another lesson learned through this experience.
Of course if egg won’t expel then things could get dangerous and even if we get the egg out will this problem continue. The situation, questions and “should have done’s” weigh heavy on our minds and hearts.
There comes a point when sometimes you have to step back and let nature take it’s course – and that’s tough.
So if you can say a little prayer for her (and us – because we got to really bond with her)
It’s all in God’s hands now.
