    Is there a support group thread for first time chicken euthanization? *sniff, sniff*
    We had to put down our very first chicken last night.

    It's always so difficult to do, but in the end you did what was right for your bird. That little comfort I know, but it's the only comfort I can ever cling to! So sorry for your loss.

  9. I know how you feel, salide. I just put down our first chicken the other day....I am still getting choked up. [​IMG]

    But I do know that it was best for my flock and that chicken. [​IMG]
