Tell me about it! I just love flushing money down the toilet but lets face it...with our addictions we will keep flushing lol. The flushing happens very rarely. Most of the time its gain.

I think she was probably straining to lay and got a bit too stressed with the heat. She's a special needs hen with a limp, so it takes extra effort and exertion for her to do just about everything. Sigh. She was an awesome hen.  


So sorry.  That's amazing that she did so well up to this point.

 

@chickencrazy21  sorry to read about your chick too.

We lost a 3-yr-old hen a couple weeks ago.  It sucks!  So sorry for you losing an awesome hen :hugs

The fire was scary but our 3 hens were troopers in the heat.  We were lucky the smokey fires were blowing away from the house.  The heat was bad enough and if there was smoke too it would've been bad.  I would've taken the hens to a park or somewhere without smoke but we got lucky to be able to stay home.  I just felt bad for the canyon residents that had to be evacuated with their livestock and pets.

Hi deb

 

TY!  We got lucky in that the fire and smoke was getting blown away from us.  Felt sorry for the canyon residents with livestock/pets that had to be evacuated though.  Transmission lines were in real danger.  I couldn't sleep and stayed up all night.
