    A very sad event occured this evening. As I went to check on the chicks, I noticed Fuffles, the black austrolorp, that hasn't had nearly as much growth as the others, in an uncomfortable state. He lied spread out with his body in a deformed manner. I quickly lifted the cover to the brooder and poked at him. Nothing. No heartbeat was in the poor lifeless chick. I fell into deep despair and I cannot stop my overwhelming feelings of sorrow and grief. It's life though, and it will live up to the name.
    RIP Fuffles

    Goodnight

    I'm so sorry Conner...I'm sure your little Fuffles felt very loved while he was in your care. It sounds like he wasn't right to begin with, and I'm sure there was nothing you could have done. Hope you feel better soon [​IMG]

    So sorry to hear about your poor baby chick. Your other chicks are very lucky to have someone taking care of them that cares so much. Good luck with the rest of your birds.
