Sorry to hear Casper's not feeling well.

Has she laid many eggs this time yet or is this her first?

What is she usually fed?

When did the droppings become loose?

Is she eating at all?

Expert:  Edele Grey replied 1 year ago.

I'm not familiar with that food, is it a pelleted, complete diet?

Is her calcium supplement in food or water?

Has her abdomen swelled?

Has she been trying to lay?

Has she had anything different in her food recently? or a new treat?
