    [​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,

    [​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!

    Oh I'm so sorry about your baby. [​IMG]
    We do all we can sometimes and it's just not meant to be.
