    I lost my little Dutch boy this morning.[​IMG]

    No rain all Summer, than no rain for the last 2 weeks. It poured this morning and flooded my chicken tractor. I had just let them out of their house 20 minutes before. Well the rain was fast and furious so there was 4" of water, which is gone now, and Chibi, being so small drowned. The other 2 are fine, thank the powers that be, but I feel so utterly responsible for this guy dying and I just want to bawl. He was the first baby we ever had hatch successfully. He was born on my daughter's B-day. She will be heartbroken.

    I feel like a terrible chicken mom

    I'm sorry for your loss. He probably went fast, before he even knew anything.
