    Here's the info:

    I hatched a beautiful wonderful amazing little ducky on November 23,2010. I had wanted ducks for 2 year+ & I finally got her precious self. She absolutely meant the WORLD to me. I hatched her from and egg and watched her grown up and turn into a very beautiful girl. She started laying a few weeks ago. I was so proud of her and her eggs. Everyday I would go out there and yell "Weeeendylouu!" She would just "quack,quack,quack,QUACK!" Wendy just brightened my day everyday. I have no idea what happened.. I walked in on her on June 15,2011 and she was just sitting there and I thought she was laying an egg so I left her peacefully alone. A few hours later I walked down there and saw her head laying down,and she wouldn't answer when I called so I frantically walked inside and there was her body lying dead. I have no words to describe how awful I feel about this [​IMG] I can't stop crying because now I have nothing but memories.I have been crying nonstop and just can't get my mind off her. She was always healthy so I have no clue how it happened. She died peacefully.. I just feel horrible. I'm really sorry about this rant but I need to get it off my shoulders. I hope you will understand and won't think I'm overreacting.. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You definitely are NOT overreacting. She was your one and only and your precious baby! It is ok to cry. [​IMG]

    How awful and strange that she passed so young...I don't know a lot about ducks, so someone else may be of more help.

    I'm sorry this has happened, but I know she was very, very loved [​IMG]

    Wendylou sounds like she was a very special and beloved pet. Coming here to share your loss was a good idea, we will understand your loss as many of us hear have also lost a special duck. For now- cry all you need to - its good to get it out. In time your memories will no longer make you cry- and you will smile when you think of her and how she touched your life. She knew she was loved and quacking her head off when you called her was a way for her to show it to you- now your tears are your way of showing the loss you feel- dont hold them back. [​IMG]

    Sorry for your loss. It is always difficult to have a loss and to not know why makes it harder. Be kind to yourself and it is okay to grieve.

    Been there done that and it sounds like she was a well tended girl and we are not able to predict everything so think of all the warm fuzzy times you guys had. Glad she was a happy duck in your care!
