Aw man so Im a mess right now I recently ( in the past hour) lost my 6th chicken this year. I am a chicken owner who grows very attached to them because they are like pets to me. Ivy was a speckled sussex and was my *favorite* chicken. She would always follow me around and stand there until I picked her up, and would follow me into the house if I'd left the door open. My mom thinks my little seven year old brother accidentaly killed her- but he said a hawk got her. This sucks majorly.
