You're welcome. No, she didn't. I'm so so sorry. I've lost birds before too. Several times to predators. It really hurts.
Do you have a roo? You could maybe try hatching one of her eggs if you do. I've done that before. It does help.
That's good that you blew an egg out to keep. Keeping feathers/eggs/babies from lost birds eases the pain.
I feel ya. I'm sorry. :hugs
Unfortunately no roo...I wish this didn't have to happen. I keep trying to think this isn't real but it is :hit. Its nobody's fault...its just life I guess.

I am so sorry to hear about your sweet Perri. Rest assured that one thing you will NEVER hear anyone say here is 'it was just a chicken'. She was a well loved bird and rest assured that her little soul is flying free.

I don't know how foxes are in Queensland but here once they know where the buffet table is, they come back for seconds. Good job keeping your remaining flock locked up. You will either have to eliminate the fox or reinforce your run and coop.

Here in Missouri, USA we can shoot predator animals that have killed livestock but I have no idea what you are allowed to do where you are. Maybe your parents can help you out with that.

Until then... :hugs

Thank you Laura. We have all lost birds at one time or another and understand the pain you are feeling. Try and remember the fun you had with little Perri. That is what she would want you to do.


The Rainbows Bridge Poem

RainbowBridge.com
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
