Last night we lost one of our chicks. I'm not sure about Shelby being able to raise them. she got choked up when we noticed one bird was acting funny and she picked it up and brought it into the house. she gave it water and some chick starter, but I made her take it back to the coop to spend the night. Sadly, (as I suspected) she didn't make it, How can I get her to understand that sometimes animals die, and there isn't anything we can do about it. Hopefully she will understand in time. She always gets emotional when we loose an animal. (she has had an old Doe rabbit, she passed away after 6 years of having her) I just hope that if another one dies, we wont have to keep burying them in my back yard... with the other pets.
