Xs2! My war with the gnats lasted months
So sorry for your heart ache.
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.
Please, if you are able... share a pic of her during a happy time to honor her memory??
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!
The one peeking behind her is Ruby.....she was one of the ones who died by the machine......
Shes gorgeous!! My oh my pretty girl!
I will probably get more when my family moves but I just can't handle them anymore.........and what if another one dies despite my efforts!?...........it's too many deaths in a row for me to handle...........besides............my mom already found someone who is most likely taking them.............................
So sorry for your loss
You have more chickens left?
Maybe I'm understanding wrong...I thought this was your last one?
