The girls

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Have 6 girls, Barred Rocks, 3 baby Orpingtons arriving soon. Love them lots. I don't know who's more spoiled them or me.

I have one that is very sick and I'm thinking she may be the first one I'll have to put down. I'm really distressing over this. I know it's something I need to know how to do, I owe them a peaceful departure. But what is the best way? I'm so afraid I'll do something wrong.

Ugh.The hardest part.

Welcome to BYC :frow I'm so sorry to hear you have to deal with the euthanasia issue already. That is a very difficult thing to deal with, I know… There are many different techniques you can use, everyone does it differently, but here is a good discussion on the topic with some suggestions:

Best of luck :hugs

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
