    Today was my first loss of my Buff Orphington, Tweety Bird.
    I have no idea why or how. I went out this morning and she was laying there dead. It was so sad to see her laying there.

    I took her out of the coop area and went back to check on the rest of the girls. The top three hens were right where I had removed her. They were quiet and somber looking. It really moved me. Later the rest of the flock went over to the same area also. She will be missed.

    I dread the day that I go out and see a dead chicken...again. My only chicken deaths were a baby chick, DOA and my 5 week old roo, killed by a snake. I feel your pain. I'm so sorry!!! It really hurts when a pet dies and yes other pets feel the pain too. She will be missed. :aww

    I'm so sorry to hear about your Tweety Bird. I dread the day! Lost one as a baby but not since. Again, so sorry about your loss.

    So sorry for your loss of such a gorgeous creature. Man, I lay on the bed and sobbed after my first loss.

    My sweet DH (the man is a mensch X 10) reminded me so gently that this is what we buy into when when raising pets. Then he poured some eggnog heavily laced w/ bourbon so I could stop crying.

    Hugs to you.
