I recently posted mentioning my birds were being really mean to each other. I thought my one bird had healed enough and sent her back to begin mingling with the other ladies. I was trying to do it gently as they weren't really letting her back in. She spent one night outside of the coop but in the run. By the middle of today, quite a snowstorm kicked up so everybody got closed up in the coop. Well, I went to go check on things and they had pecked her down to her skull. My poor girl, I felt so bad. I decided the most humane thing to do would be to put her down. I'd never done it before but did plenty of research on here the other night. I was prepared to do the whole thing with my hubby but he sent me away to take care of things himself. I just felt so bad that this poor chick went through being attacked by my dog (she healed from that), then getting beat up once (wasn't sure what had happened) to then have to get pecked at like that. Yes, I am a total softie but also realize when it's time to say goodbye. On the other hand, the other birds had me so ****** I was ready to just put them all down and start fresh....but I didn't 4 birds left now.
