I've got them separate now. I cried a lot but it was a learning experience before both were killed.
Awww. I'm sorry to hear about your baby.

I'm sorry about your babies too.
Memorial Day my daughter-in-law and grandson came over. He was trying to see the baby chicks so we put
him in the "chickie jail." He would stand there and try to "call" them over. LOL
Well they eventually came over to him.
But that WAS NOT what he wanted.
So what does he do when they go away???
Tries to call them back again. And as soon as they came back over he
would be like "nope, don't want them near me." LOL
