It seems with Spring there are not only wonderful little hatches going on, but a lot of things that happen that are an affront to all of us. I've noticed a trend the last couple of days and it bothers me enough to mention it. If one person sees a baby chick being abused, then someone else sees 10 and they have to describe it blow-by-blow. It's like they are trying to prove they can find an even more heartbreaking story than the last one. I try to avoid them, but sometimes it's like a train wreck, you just have to look even though you know you shouldn't and it's ugly, and depressing. Most of these are things that will break our hearts if we do read it, but things we can't do anything about because it's not in our area, or it's already happened and it's after the fact. Please, this is a place to come and celebrate our fowl friends, is there any chance we can focus on the good and try leave the bad alone for awhile? I know some of the responses to this will be ugly too, so I don't plan on reading them, I just wanted to say enough is enough, stop trying to find the most heart-breaking, heart-rending, stories you can to post.
