    I just got a heartbreaking phone call from a friend and fellow BYC member. JamesA lost around 40 of his birds in a flash flood that occured last night. I think we should all remember him in our thoughts and prayers. He is a super nice guy who really loves his birds and is very devistated by this horrible turn of events. All his French Cuckoos, wellies and brahmas are gone!

    James, I hope it gets better and you can recover quickly from this tragedy. Let me know if I can help [​IMG]

    Quote:He lives in northwest GA. His home is fine and his babies were in the garage so they made it. He had 2 little wellie hens that floated out the flood on a board or they too would have drowned. It's just so sad!
