    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I lost one of my barred rock hens this evening. She got her neck caught between two boards in the coop. I heard some commotion in the coop as I went out to check on them. I was able to free her but too late. She must have broken her neck. I held her until she was gone. I laid her on the ground for the others to say their good byes. So sad............[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    * I'm sad to hear about losing your hen to this accident. They do get themselves into some verx bad situations and sometimes you wind up wondering how any of them survive it. Bless you heart. I know you will miss her. All we can do sometimes is learn, and correct the problems as best we can and mourn our losses and work for better. [​IMG]
