    had an oldtimer tell me once "you'll kill a few chickens before you figure it out". He was right, but that doesn't make it easy. You tried hard and that's what matters. Sorry for your loss.

    Quote:I like this...it's comforting. I've certainly gone through a few chickens, and no, it hasn't been easy. But this is so true.
