First off...I'm not looking to invite trouble here. I'm curious to see what others think. I don't want to hear any debating, as I know some topics can get heated. I'd just like to hear if anyone is of the same mind. I'm not a religious person. I never really have been. I'm in high school and was raised really 'chill' to believe what I want but to be respectful about it. I never open up my values and beliefs to others. This post is really the closest thing. I'm not really sure what I am. But I do know that I had an interesting thing happen today. Firstly, one of my roosters had been ill a few days ago. I didn't know what was the matter, but when I gave him electrolytes in his water he perked up a little. I told my parents and they thought I was being silly. They saw nothing wrong with him. I stopped trying to explain myself and watched him silently for days. He was not himself. Today, we had been running around doing errands all day. I kept seeing crows. I know that they might accumulate in one area at a time for whatever reason, but I've never seen them in all places I went. I don't believe in much, but crows have always given me some chill. Brushing it off, I carried on with my day. They're just birds, so what, right? When I went outside to lock up the animals, I thought again about the crows as I walked to the coop. When I opened the coop door and saw my rooster was not roosting with his hen, I automatically looked on the ground and found him. His body was intact, almost like he just dropped. Although I had a small moment of 'I-told-you-so' to my parents, who suddenly seemed to grasp the notion that I don't need to be a vet to diagnose my animals as 'ill' I'm still feeling a little weird. I had pointed out the crows to my mom as we saw them today. She's pretty spiritual, so we toyed around with the idea of 'magic' for a minute-because to many, crows are omens of bad things and death. I knew my rooster was going to drop dead-obviously something was wrong. But I wonder if there are things out there that can seal fate, or show that things are coming? Ideas? Contribution? Helpful things, please. And mods, I'm sorry if this is not an appropriate thread. It's not my intent to cause any issues.
