    My baby bird Buff is dead! She was 10 months old!

    Buff was constipated and it got to the point where it was at least a 4 hour job getting her to poop again. She would try so hard to get it all out and she would pass out or get dizzy. She was sitting on the roost last night and passed out. All the chickens freaked out when they saw her fall and she broke her neck [​IMG] I hate it when things die!

    [​IMG] Sorry for your loss, she must have been uncomfortable though... It was probably for the best. [​IMG] At least it was quick for her.
    I'd hate one of my birds to die.

    It was probably for the best. It was sad. But I guess she was gonna die sometime.
