    so, I hatched chicks, and one came out -not good. So, I got up the nerve to euthanize it.. I know it was right.
    My brooder box has 2 mesh metal "shelves" covering the top. I was trying to decide if I should look in the bowl.. the "gas chamber" to make sure the chickie was not still alive. I couldn't bring myself to look.
    So I turn around, and brushed against the brooder and the metal shelf slipped off , and fell in. I was horrified. One chick was killed. One of the cute little silkies isn't walking well now, and I dunno if it's fear, or if the shelf mangled its legs. Almost all the babies were under it..
    I'm grumbly mad @ the hubby because the first thing out of his mouth was saying basically it was my fault for messing with the "lids".
    I am NOT gonna touch them... I'm afraid I'll knock the heat lamp in ot something.
    So, Im going to bed.. and I'll avoid the dog and cat. And hope the little chicks are ok..

    Go to bed that's the best thing when you have days like that.

    I'm having the same kind of day...find some chocolate, drink some water, and go to sleep. That's what I'm gonna do. [​IMG]
    It's not your fault...things happen....secure the shelves a little tighter next time. Again, [​IMG]

    Chocolate, sleep, and a new day tomorrow. Don't beat yourself up, dear, we all have days like that. (not fun, but true) Sleep well and feel better (and if you happen to slap hubby in your sleep, well, .....oops, I wrote that out loud)

    [​IMG] Sounds like you need a nice hot cup of cocoa and your husband needs [​IMG] At least that's what I would do to my husband if he made that remark to me especially if he knew how bad I felt already [​IMG] Go get some rest and I hope your day is better tomorrow [​IMG]

    Quote:Yeah, accidentally slapping hubby in the face while your asleep - that should help considerably. How dare he say anything to you like that.


    Here's hoping for a better tomoorow for you!
