    I feel your pain.

    It's a hard thing to do.

    My husband would rather spend the money and have the vet do it. He gets upset at the thought of us doing it!

    [​IMG] Nothing worse about owning a pet then making this decision. To have to actually do it is even worse. I am so sorry.

    Oh, I'm so sorry. [​IMG] You're right. It is so hard to cull them. I had to cull 9, twelve-week olds back in July due to Coryza and it was horrible. I really do feel for you and am so sorry for you loss. Lots and lots of cyber hugs are coming your direction. [​IMG]

    I'm so sorry. It's part of being a responsible chicken owner at times, it's hard but has to be done. We know how you are feeling.
