sorry for your loss.

A friend and i did a meat-bird project at her place. We just had them processed today, but we had lost 3 a few days ago, they just dropped dead. I am SURE it was the heat.
sucks to lose birds though.

Oh, by the way, my extra rooster has found a home---in my freezer!
Had him done with the meaties today. I figured, why not? If not mine, he'd probably end up in someone else's freezer along with other extra roos!

We aren't going to be able to make it tomorrow


I have not been feeling very well at all today, think it's just from the heat. Going back to bed now....

So you're getting David's buffs? I think I'll be getting his BBS.

Quote:OK, so I am getting the red cochin hen from you and the chicks right?? I need to see how many cages I have to bring. Probably more than I planned to because I am sure there will be more that I have to come home with! haha

I won't be able to make it today. I woke up this morning to tragedy in the coop. My automatic door closed on my two new Polishes who were apparently roosting in the door way and they weren't smart or quick enough to get out of the way. I am devestated.
Just when I thought I was done learning everything about chicken-raising the hard way...

Abby, I'll try to get your Ameraucana to you next weekend.

Quote:Oh how tragic! I had wondered about that ever happening with those auto openers, and I gues it can. They need to have a safety feature like a garage door that is something is in the way, the sensor will not let the door close down. Sorry for your looses.
