Dirty Birdie is dead. I took her to the vet and we had two choices: referring her for surgery at Texas A&M or putting her to sleep. The vet was far more sensitive about that. The vet said she had a very large mass blocking much of her cloaca. She had a fever of 108 and was losing feathers. I will miss her. She will be buried between Marty Poopins and Pocahontas.
