Scary and bad update

by Elizabeth Jardina, Sunset researcher

Ophelia is in surgery.

Her crop was worse this morning, and after consulting the vet, two Sunset staffers took her in. The vet who saw her said that the mass in her crop seems to be starting to ferment, so surgery is her best option.

She’ll be under anesthesia, which is very risky for a chicken. She very well might die.

I’ll post more when we hear back from the vet.
