    Boogie died last night. I have no idea what from. I came up stairs after the boys were in bed, 3 hours later it was stiff as a board.
    #4 NoName, is still doing good. Not even close to fluffy yet though. ::sigh::

    I'm sorry Shellie ... it's so hard to lose a chick. It just seems to be even harder when there doesn't seem to be a reason.

    Sorry about your chick. Is this the one you helped hatch? If it is, that is one of the main reasons I try never to assist a chick to hatch. Usually there is a reason they can't make it out on their own and the few I did help in the past ended up dying in the first few days anyway. I know some find it cold hearted ( and believe me I'm NOT a cold hearted person) but if they can't hatch on their own I have to just walk away and let mother nature take over.
