    Sorry to hear about your babies. I'm going down to Milford on the 10th of next month. I could meet you somewhere and give you some eggs, OR I have some EE's due that day. If they come before I leave I could bring you some of them, If my daughter lets me put them in her new car that is. Let me know. [​IMG]

    I am doing ok! Thanks for all the support and kind words! [​IMG]

    DH just doesn't understand it, he says..it's just a chicken. Not to me it's not, I feel responsible for those babies. I brought them into this world, it is my job to make sure they are happy.

    It's just when I go out there, I get sad. Sometimes I feel like I should hatch out some more, but at the same time, they won't replace my Cutie (that was her name)

    Yes in just 2 weeks. I lost my first baby at 1 week and I thought my heart was going to fall out of my chest, now a week later another one??

    Like I said before....I thought I made it safe enough..

    I find that those that actually "get it" are right here @ BYC. [​IMG]
    We just hatched out a bunch for the very first time ever - and boy did I fret. Couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, I was a basket case. [​IMG] Didn't know what if things were ok and normal, [​IMG] or if there were problems. These people kept me grounded during hatching and those first few days. [​IMG] They are very understanding.

    Sorry about your babies...but I think everybody is right. Don't give up - yes, cry...we all do, but you will smile again when you see your next babies running around and trying to fly. [​IMG]

    Hang in there!​
