a few days ago a dog attacked my polish teenager, her hip was dislocated and she was scratched up but I worked on her and she was doing great , I thought.
This morning when I checked on her her eyes were a white gooey mass, just the sockets left and she was gasping for air. I put her out of her misery, I took a few minutes the longest minutes I could imagine, and it broke my heart.

This afternoon while working to fix a new coop for my girls, one of the babies had gotten out of the play pen I fashioned for them and came to see what I was doing, I didn't know she was there and stepped on her. She was eviscerated. I thought I was making things safer for them and i've killed 2 of them in one day!!!

I am a strong woman but not sure if I am strong enough to do that again.
Be careful with your precious babies and I hope you never HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT.

sorry about your polish! It is better for the animal, but harder for the person

as for your chick, I set a big waterer down on one as a tiny chick once, it was horrible and I felt guilty about it for a long time so I completely understand how you feel! You are not alone there

I stepped on a chicken once, I also dropped a egg while candling it, and saw the 17 day old chick move. I was guilty for days, plus cried everytime I looked at the incubator. It will get better, and you'll fell better too! Sorry for your losses
