Lost my first today...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Picked up my babies on Saturday... 2 EE's and 1 Black Sex Link who are all 2 weeks old, and 1 Buff Orpington and 1 Dominque both only 3 days old. I couldn't help but pick a 2 week old Black Sex Link who was the same size as the 3 day old chicks, I've always had a thing for runts.

This morning my honey pointed out that he thought she was sick, and she was gone by early afternoon. So sad. Guess picking the sickliest doesn't come with the greatest survival rate. :(

Stan the Man will be missed.

I'm sorry you lost her. hugs.gif
It's always sad to hear about chicks who don't make it, sadly not all of them can.
My chickens: Silva, Peach, Trotsky, and one fat Chirpy which is slow-moving, unfit, doesn't lay eggs and contributes nothing to the activities in the garden. Chirpy presides over the diligent workers and steals the food they get in return for laying eggs. One fears humans may have a large imbalance to fight in the ways of the natural world... Hehehe.
