    So my dad calls up to me "im afraid one of your chickens has died"
    "well, which one?"
    "one of the grey ones" so i think its an auracauna and go downstairs, he said it was just laying there in the middle of the drive so he moved it to the side, i take one look and realize it wasn't an araucana but Baby my gorgous blue brahma who is about 12 weeks old [​IMG] she was my favorite chick at the moment. I turn here head and realize it was squished, my dad had just been out and picked my brother up in the car, so of course i realize, my dad managed to RUN OVER my favourate chicken [​IMG] how is that even possible!?!? so of course im mad at him because iv never got a chick like her out of my rooster before, she was almost lavander in colour and had golden lacing down her back, she was really pretty [​IMG]

    Sorry for your loss, but chickens should be smart enough to get out of the way of a moving car. Mine will be inches from the car when I move it, but they get out of the way. Are you sure she was run over? If her head was run over, it would be more than just slightly squished, it would be pancake flat and bloody. Something else might have gotten her and a dead bird laying on cement can end up with a "squished" side. So don't be too harsh on your dad.
