Over three years of keeping chickens that started out with a small flock of a trio of LF White Leghorns. Kernal-the roo and two hens Sandy and Krispy. Within months into backyard chickening Sandy passed away from eating three screw hole covers. My first chicken loss and it wouldn't be the last. I was left with Kernal and Krispy. Days and months went by welcoming in the new chicks. By then my love of "BYCing" had risen. Various breeds until I found the ones I loved and liked. The bantam wyandottes were here to stay. As months passed and so did a few years several of my little ones passed away. First it was Sandy- LF White Leghorn pullet, Newbie- a crossbeaked Bantam Blue Wyandotte pullet (her story is one of it's own, first chicken I've given CPR to), Coal- a Bantam Blue OEGB pullet , Diamond- a Bantam Splash Wyandotte pullet. This year I've lost two of the best birds I've ever had in my life, Coco a bantam rosecomb RIR hen. Her story was on here not to long ago. And now Krispy the last hen of my first trio of birds. I took her to the vet yesterday to see what was up with her. She wasn't feeling well at all. The xray showed her abdomin was full of something but not sure what. $173 that day and she ended up staying the night at the vets. She was more depressed today and was suffering in my eyes. Over the phone I made the choice to end it. I didn't want to but I didn't want my girl to die a painfull death. I couldn't talk over the phone I was crying so much and I still am. I feel like a murderer right now I just hope I made the right choice.. Rest in Peace Krispy babe. Krispy on the left and Sandy on right.
