    [​IMG] My littlest chick died today. [​IMG] She was a bantam Brahma and her name was Baby. She was alright when I checked on her last, then when I checked the brooder again, she was gone. I think she might have gotten smushed by the other chicks as they were all standards and so much bigger than she was. [​IMG] She was the one that I was having the most problems with as well, with pasty butt. The only one of my chicks to have it. But she was a real fighter! I shall miss her terribly. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Goodbye Dear Baby, RIP. [​IMG]

    It helps to talk to people who understand.

    Aww, I'm sorry! It's never easy to lose one! But it does help to share. Baby had a great chicken mama, she was loved~[​IMG]

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your "Baby". Sometimes they are just too fragile for this world.
