Our little chick did not make it, as I sit here and cry.

    Had to cull our little chick, We tried antibiotics, wonder dust, vitamins, gatorade and time. She had a tumor like thing growing on back of her neck that was getting larger. She was struggling to breathe, and just not thriving. I hate this part, only 3 weeks old. I am blessed that the other 26 are healthy and thriving.
    I suppose it does not get easier has we have to make this choice for our birds.
    Gotta love my DH.

    Thank you guys... I too am glad the others are doing so well! I imagine it does not get easier especially if one has tried and tried to save a chicken.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. Unfortunately this is a part of chicken raising. Glad to hear you have 26 of them doing great.
