My new baby girls!!!
packinaglock, do you have any birds?
Here is a picture of some of the big girls. They are retiring for the evening.
They are so sweet!
What is it about those baby pix that makes us all lose our senses and say "OOOOOH, I want/need some of those..." ?
Quote:Yes but Im a newbie, I have five RIR's and 4 BO's and one BR. I am thinking about getting a couple more BR's on Tuesday a new batch is suposed to arrive at my neighborhood feed store.
One of my new baby girls died last night. I noticed that one wasn't too perky so I took her in the house and held her on my lap on a heating pad. I tried to give her a little sugar water. She died in my lap. So sad. This is the first time I have ever lost a bird. All the other are fine and perky, eating, drinking and sleeping.
I am so sorry! I lost one once. I found her dead in the brooder....she had a limp leg so I was kind of expecting it. It was so sad because the other chick just panicked when I took her out.
I hope the rest are ok!
I just hate that. It just isn't right for them to go through all that trouble to get here, get hatched out of that tiny egg only to die. I hate it when I order them and they make the whole horrible trip, just to die once they get to a safe place.
