    i just had to cull a chick that had intestines and maybe another organ(liver)? on the outside of it's body. first time i had to do that myself. really sucks but had to be done. on a happy note i do have 7 happy healthy babies to make me smile.

    Never easy to do, but sometimes it is the right thing. Takes courage, good for you, being tough enough.

    Glad you have 7 happy, healthy chicks to help cheer you. [​IMG]
