    Well we had an awful day yesterday. One of the doves I was babysitting had a sort of seizure in front of my daughter and dropped dead. Poor kid was a bit traumatized to put it nicely.

    It had been fine earlier, even escaped with the other one a few times to go on big explores round the house and we had had to keep popping them back in their little run. Just before leaving for town I noticed it was sitting quite droopy on the perch then on the floor then I was in shopping and got a phone call from hubby to say it had just died.

    Its a horrid feeling to have a pet you are caring for die. I'm dreading telling my sister.

    Oh no Appps :( How horrible :( But unfortunately these things to happen.
    I lost a friends budgie a couple of months ago while she was in hospital :(
    We held a funeral service for him in the back yard, son lit a candle as well for him.
    Hope your little girl is ok x

    Thanks. She had a bit of trouble getting to sleep last night. Hard not to see it when you close your eyes I guess.

    Hi all. Just thought I'd post some new pics of the chicks I hatched. Now almost 3 weeks old.

    The first 6 hatched from Araucana Eggs, but the woman I got them from said they could be either pure or mixed. The 6th one I'm pretty sure is an Araucana X Blue Barnevelder. The last 2 Hatched from Barnevelder Eggs and are probably crossed with Speckled Sussex.
