I'm not sure. I did have to off a duck not long ago and it didn't bother me. It had a defect that couldn't be fixed it had to do with spine issues and it started getting really bad. We buried it and no tears were shed. I'm a huge animal person, but I'd rather my family eat the chickens I raise than but it from the store.
I agree.

No, but I've seen a very mad hen 😂 My polish got attacked by a hawk and I wanted to check her for injuries. She tore my hand up, but I didn't let go until I knew she was okay.

None of my chickens have gone broody yet but when they do I won't need my incubator anymore 😁
How many do you have and how old are they?
Last year I had three 14 mo old hens go broody, 2 multiple times. Then when the pullets started laying, 3 of them went broody... in early winter!!

Yeah I can't wait until mine can hatch some because I have a spare coop they can use that I can lock everyone away from. First broody I see I'm sticking her in it with some eggs 😂

Then they can hatch all my eggs for me and care for the chicks so I have zero Mama hen responsibilities and can enjoy the chicks more. Only thing I have to do is feed and water the hen which I do every day anyways. No worrying if the chicks are too cold or if I need to assist an egg!

I can't get out of bed without the little girl following me. She's my little white shadow.
My puggle is like a body growth. When I'm gone for a night she won't eat and stares out the window. My husband bribes her with burgers and everything. She rarely is left home without me being there. She's 10 and I've had her since she was 5 weeks. She was emaciated and full of fleas and ticks the day I got her. She ate a steak the first day I had her 😂 since then she's been my best friend.
