Today has been another terrible day of winter here with my birds Today my male chiloe widgeon died and my female mandarin died and a modena pigeon died and 2 female muscoveys and to top it off my female blue muscovey i just bought for $40 dollars at the Poultry show 2 weeks ago dissapeared !!! And i have lost at least 40 birds in the last 3 months and 4 rabbits . They birds arent sick i just had them all tested 1 month ago . They always have food and water . They get bread ,lettuce,tomatoesand cheerios every day . I got into birds becasue it seemed fun to do and i really liked animals . I knew it was a lot of responsibility but i was up for it and really enjoyed it at first . First 3 years actually . NOw it just seems like a hassle . Seems like something is telling me times up . If its not birds dieing its my water pipes are leaking or frozen even with heat coils , Or its a nieghbor complaining to the town for no reason . I DOnt know if its just the cold getting to my birds or what but one of my barns is heated and the other barn had a good layer of hay down for them to go into and even with that the water freezes and ice grows on the cielings . Does any one else ever just get fed up and want to get rid of thier birds ??
