I am so very, very, very deeply sorry, @BY Bob. That is all. Sending lots of love and healing vibes for your heart.Sylvie is Gone
She out free ranging and I turned my back to do something and a hawk killed her. It was over when I heard it.
I'm telling everyone this so you know. I do not want to hear that it was for the best, or that I should have done X, or anything else. If you respond in that way I will block you. I am beyond devasted and I just don't want to hear I told you so or anything that you think is constructive. Frankly right now I'm ready to give up the chickens all together.
I don't know when I'll be back to the thread. It could be tomorrow, it could be a week.
Oh no. I hope to read ahead and learn she improved.Emily isn’t good tonight. She couldn’t get up on her perch. She found a place closer to the ground inside the coop. She tried staying close to Jaffar, but he’s not in the mood, and pecked her (soft enough, but she got the message) I hope she makes it through the night.
Nice job figuring it out and taking care of her. I had to cut off some turds on a couple of my own girls recently (Lucky and Little Mill).Emily made it through the night. Her problem was pasty butt. (I had to do some pickin and grinnin) but now she is cleaner, and can perform her bodily functions unhindered. PS. (Nice though before breakfast isn’t it?)
