    I lost two girls this week and they are the first pets I have ever lost. It was really hard for me and it just seemed wrong to bury them and have that be that. Agnes died a slow death and Peggy was killed by something. Both girls I did everything I could for.

    Anyway, I made these and put them at the sites that my girls are buried. It makes me feel better when I look in the backyard to see these in the ground. It's a good way to remember them. I'm no artist or anything, but I did my best an I think the likenesses are pretty close.

    Have you done anything special for the ones you've lost?

    That is so beautiful! I want to do something special for my rooster I lost, Carl. Right now it's just marked off where he is. =/ I was thinking of a little cross with his name and a little painting of his face on it

    Those are beautiful!
    I'm sorry about your girls, but it's very apparent that you loved them a great deal!
    You say you are no artist, but those are great.

    I painted a nice rock for the BR chick I lost, "his" name was Beepers...Tractor Supply was going to take him in the back and have one of the guys stomp on him...so I took him home and tried to help....He spent four days with me...I was up all night with him. Still paranoid about him crying even after he passed. I didn't get much sleep. He didn't die alone though...he was wrapped up in my scarf which I think he loved....so I buried him with that and made him a very nice rock memorial thing. I'm still working on the rock for Penelope and the Silkie Ameracauna X that didn't make it....I always try to save the weak chicks...I'm always worried that someone else won't even try.

    I unfortunately had to make a third one tonight. [​IMG]

    I have been searching high and low for a polish pullet to add to my flock. I just found this girl this morning. She is honestly the sweetest chicken I have ever met. She just wanted to be around the people o the house. She came inside and jumped back and forth from my and my roomates knees. When I went outside she was right at my feet immediately. Made me realize why I wanted a polish so bad in the first place, and why I never gave up in finding one.

    Within six hours of having and falling in love with this tiny girlie, I walked out back to check on her because I saw the back door had gotten left open. I found my dog on top of her. She was bleeding from her eyes. I had to hold her close to me as she flopped about and suffocated on her own internal bleeding. I think I'm the one who left the door open. I really hope this guilt goes away soon because I am already exhauste from all the death.
