    I just went to check everyones water again since it's been so cold all day and when i got to the pen there was a massacre of babies all over the pen [​IMG] [​IMG] KD apparently hatched her clutch (sooner than expected!!!!!) and took them to the pool. I am so MAD at myself for not taking her eggs sooner. All 9 babies were gone when i got out there, i tried to heat them up but it was just too late.

    it was her first clutch and i was so excited for them. I just lost her momma(kahlua) to a cat attack. All blue fawns and gorgeous lilacs.they weren't even peeping an hour ago....

    Oh, I'm so sorry. [​IMG] Losing baby anythings is always hard.
    Can you bury them wherever you buried the other? I know having the gravesites close together makes me feel better about it, for some reason.
    Those darned cats. [​IMG] I'm sorry for your loss.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. It's never easy to lose them. I'm still upset about my goslings we lost to a weasel this summer.

    It was terrible... I was just headed to check the water and was on the outside of the fence.. I don't think i've ever ran so fast. It really kills me that i was just out there not even an hour before and heard NO babies. you would think they'd been peepin over the cold. [​IMG]

    I just finished closing up all windows on the coop and adding a couple lights, also moved the cochins in with the ducks too. Mainly to ease my mind & heart but they all look much happier. I am just waiting on a couple heat lights to get home so I can replace the regular bulbs that are in there now.

    I am really glad i brought all the chicks into the house last night, i really woulda lost it if i lost all of them too.
