Chicks, 4-12-18,  3.JPG


This is designed to be my Coop page, rather than an educational article. However, perhaps others may find the images of how some of my chicks are maturing helpful.

To avoid having an extended page, I've placed the images behind spoiler tags. Simply click on the 'Spoiler', to see the image. Click the 'Spoiler' tag again to collapse them. Images are hosted on Imjur, due to the upload limit on here.

Images run up to 5/10/18, at which time my camera died.

Crookbeak: Silver Sebright
Unfortunately, Crookbeak's name arises from having Scissor Beak.

On 5/11/18 I noticed that Crook's beak was getting rapidly worse, and that the deformity of his nasal cavities was making it hard for him to breathe. On 5/12/18, I chose to end his suffering before it became any worse. I chose decapitation, as the quickest and most effective method. It was over in moments, for him. It'll take a bit longer, for me. Crookbeak was a pet, not a potential meat animal.

Speckle: Silver Sebright
