......than to never have had and loved them in the first place!? Well....I'll tell ya, my heart still breaks, and my step-kids....since we had to sell our chickens.....My step-daughter is special needs and has epilepsy and I was just diagnosed with lupus. The chickens were my babies and gave me a lot of joy....BUT I then learned my husband was keeping the fact that we were 2 months behind on all our bills.....medical bills and the mortgage.... I was so upset because we needed to pay for 80 dollars of my step-daughters medications and we had 5 dollars in the account. So I sold my chickens....I knew I had to do it, we needed the money and we couldn't afford their food. So I haven't been on this site for a few months. It's just a reminder of what I don't have anymore! My step-daughter still cried and gets VERY upset over her chickens not being here. Every day after school she would go out, give them a treat, swing with them, chase them around and hold every one of them. And those of you who know special-needs children....routine is the BIGGEST thing in their schedule! My step-son says he will be getting a job so he can get a couple more chickens this year but we have to sell the house and will most likely not be able to keep the chickens with us where we move! SO SAD! So here is a little tribute to MY sweet chickens who are so dearly missed every day!!! We miss you Mumford, Miss Henny Penny, COokie, Daisy Doodle, BG, Cricket, BugAboos, Echo, Shadow, Trixie, Dixie!!!! Our dogs even miss them! I pulled up some youtube videos of baby chicks the other day and my dogs came to the computer and started whining! They and the chickens got along SO well! Even the chickens would run to get the dog toy we threw! LOL! And we had some BEAUTIFUL EGGS!!!!
