    [​IMG] On tuedsay night after almost 24 hrs of trying to zip out I helped the baby out. It seemed to be doing really great. Was eating and drinking with it's brothers and sisters and playing. Went in this morning to check on everyone and Chance had passed away. Maybe I should not have helped it. But I figured 48 hrs was a long time. Just needed to vent. I am so very sad. [​IMG]

    Oh, that's okay![​IMG]
    I help some and they do fine but most of mine don't. There is often a reason for them not to be born. It is sad and heartbreaking but that is the circle of life. Not always the way we like it though.[​IMG]

    The one we helped hasn't been thriving. It isn't in pain or suffering but it's not strong either. There is generlaly a reason they don't hatch by themselves.
