    my little blind chick peppino was attacked yesterday by another chicken, he was suffering alot and was too injured to really help ( although I would have tried ) . I couldn't do it myself so I had to get my DH to kill him. He was the most loved chick that I have ever had as we had all spent so much time with him, he came when you called him and loved just being with us. I am really cross with myself as I left him with the others when I went out, he had never had a problem before but I have a hen with chicks too so I think maybe it was her. I will miss him. [​IMG]

    Oh no, I'm sooooo sorry...I suppose you can take some comfort in the fact that he had a great (albeit too short) life with you, but I know you are grieving very deeply right now. Sending warm, feathery hugs your way...:aww

    [​IMG] I am so sorry to hear about Peppino. I do believe i read about him before, wasn't he a special chick? Just remember you gave him a very good life, he was a lucky chick for having You.Don't blame yourself.

    I'm so sorry you lost your little friend. I have to say...this is the part I'm really dreading...losing a beloved pet.

    I hope your memories of him bring you comfort.
