@casportpony, @enola, @kharmon320, thank you all for your very kind words. My head knows we did our best but other parts of me don't always listen to reason. Sigh. It's just been hard to lose four of our babies this year on top of all the other things we have to deal with. I thought our chickens would live 8, 10, 12 years, but our girls were only 5. Was I wrong? Is this about the average lifespan? 3 orpingtons and 1 wyandotte, if bred makes any difference...
