It's hard to find words right now that do at least equal justice to the theme of this article. The last year has been rather hard on us. One of our oldest rescue fur-kids lived 7+ years(into early summer) with us to approx 13+ years old. Of our 28 chicks, we've lost 3; all for significantly different stages and reasons. The time and effort & love we pure into them all is rewarding; even though it's for a short lifespan.
