    Sorry for your loss I can't imagine what it is like to lose a chic.
    We just got our first chics two weeks ago,and not a single loss.
    I realize now that I was stupid for ordering so early in the spring???(I still have 2 1/2 feet of snow on the ground)

    Good Luck with your other chics,

    I am sorry you suffered a loss. It is a sad thing but very common with chicks shipped or not. I know that doesn't make it easier but sadly it is something we must accept. [​IMG]

    I am so so sorry.....In nursing my sick chicks here, I can honestly say, I have let a few tears fly.....

    You will remember her and the fact remains, that shehe was better off at your house than at a factory farm somewhere where she/he wasn't cared about! So put that in your heart and feel some goodness there....
