    We loved you, and we know that you were happy with us.

    Dumpling came into our lives on 5/30/08. She was initially named Frederick, then Frederock, and then Dumpling. She was always a hearty eater, and happily lived by the creed of "What's mine is mine & what's yours is mine" when it came to food. She was a good chicken: friendly, inquisitive, and eager to tell you about her day. First out of the coop, first to come running when called.

    We lost her to roundworms this morning.

    Sorry for your loss. [​IMG] [​IMG] What makes you think it was round worms? Do the others have them too? Please tell about the symptoms and what you may have seen in the poop so we can all learn from it.
