    [​IMG] Well my baby that came from one of my white leghorn eggs and it was a blue color died a bit ago. It just kept going to sleep and I keep giving it some water. It would perk up for a second or if another chick ran into it. But it just gave up just a minute ago. I wasn't going to give that one to my neighbor because it was not white like it was suppose to. But it was the one that had a bloody navel in the beginning so I'm guess I'm lucky it lasted as long as it did.

    I'm just glad my 11 yr old is spending the night with a friend.

    Thanks for listening,

    jackie

    [​IMG] Oh no!
    I'm really sorry!
    I'm eleven and would be really sad if any of my hens die.
    Sorry for your loss!

    We do all we can sometimes and it's just not meant to be.
