The story with this starts off happy but ends sadly I guess I'm writing it here cause none of my family and friends understand. a few months ago, I had 7 little silkie chicks hatch, I bought them inside as it wasnt safe in my coop for them at the time. I watched them grow up from these tiny little floppy chicks into these beautiful birds. when they were about a month old,my mum had them free ranging in the back yard, she put a clothes basket over them so she thought they were safe. this crow comes along and sticks its beck through the holes in the basket, and rips off half of one of my chicks wings. I told my mum to never take them outside again. When i got home i went to see which one had been attacked, it was the runt of my hatch, I had been caring for this little chick since it had been hatched. I was awake all night helping this poor chick fight for its life. the next day i had them all outside and i was holding the one who had been attacked in my hand. 2 hours later,he passed away..in my hand, my mum heard me sitting in the yard crying. she dug a hole for me, and then said goodbye to him... Now I am down to 6. I'm going to miss these 6 very much, as im never going to see them again. I'm going to miss the way they all run out when i walk outside. I'm going to miss the way they make me smile I'm going to miss the way they follow me around the yard I'm going to miss their sweet little voices. I'm going to miss the way they jump around. I'm mostly going to miss the way they make me feel better when im having a bad day. I hope they are going to get a owner who loves them as much as I do. I hope someone is going to care for them... I'm going to have a hard time sayin good by to them. Tomorrow is my last full day with them. I'm going to cry so much Thank you for listening/reading.
