Today I had to put down my EE Fred.She was a really sweet chicken but she managed to get herself stuck behind the coop and stabbed her leg with some wire. It looked fine at first but it bled a lot and the wound was deep. Her leg ended up swelling a lot and although it eventually went down her wound never healed. Fred couldn't put any weight on her leg and her wound, if anything, was getting worse. She had little want to drink and although she had appetite, would only eat if coaxed and she lost most of her weight. She slept most of the time. So today me and my family decided the most humane thing to do was put her down. Down to the apple tree I went and after she was dead we buried her by the tree. For a first time killing, well, anything, I think I did well. I succeeded my first try. RIP Fred.
