    So sorry for your heart ache. :hugs

    Sounds like it's been a very traumatic experience.:(

    I know that poster came off as hurtful event though it was an attempt to connect... because it's ALMOST always our favorite bird that things happen to first. :oops: :he

    Please, if you are able... share a pic of her during a happy time to honor her memory?? :fl

    Oh. Good. Heavens! I am SO SOORY. Silkies are so sensitive to the heat - and the gnats are just AWFUL this year ... everywhere! I almost lost a young Nankin cockerel last weak to heat stroke. Luckily, we got to him in time and ran him under cool water. He liked it so much that when I took him out, he hopped right back into the sink to stand a bit longer! Another BYC friend suggested keeping a bucket of water nearby, just in case we have to dunk someone quickly. There is now a water bucket inside each door of my home - if I leave them outside, they heat up like bathwater!
    PLEASE don't let this be the end of your chicken-keeping! Your "fuzzy friend" taught you - and a lot of others, here, a very valuable lesson. Learn and move on ... they're SO worth it! :hugs:hugs:hugs
