I bought some tophats from a fellow byc'er. 4 of them, probably 3 months old. About 3 days after I got them home one seemed to get stuck in the rain. I found it outside soaking wet, took it inside and tried to warm it up but it passed after a while...hypothermia. 2 days later one drowns in the duck pond. Bout a week later, my frizzle pecks one to death, says my MIL. Frizzle never showed aggression to another bird before or since, but apparently my frizzle killed this bird. And tonight we get a rain and I come home to my last tophat from this batch, dead in the rain. Not like it had no where to go. Mere INCHES from shelter!!!!!! Seriously! Is this my luck or are these dumb birds and I need to quit trying. Did I just threw all that money away on DUMB BIRDS or is this my crappy luck?
