  1. May died [​IMG]
    She was my last Buff Orpington and she was in the nesting box and was found dead. [​IMG] We think she may of died of the heat but we are not sure [​IMG]
    She was one of the last 3 originals that I had of the 10 I started out with 2 1/2 years ago. [​IMG] She was always trying to hatch eggs and really wanted to have babies but I never got the chance to let her do it [​IMG] [​IMG] She wasn't always the friendlist but was my little baby girl [​IMG]

    Rest In Peace May! You are missed greatly [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I lost one of my Buff Orpingtons this month from the heat. She was my best and biggest layer. Always weighed in above extra large.
    I kept telling myself that she was a chicken and get over it already, but she was also MY bird not just A bird. I know how you feel. I think that there must have been more that I could have/ should have done... and I didn't do it, what ever 'it' was.
    Don't be too hard on yourself. She had a good, safe, well fed life.
    I am sorry. I had chicken dreams for a couple of nights afterwards. Guilt I guess. But we can't control the weather. We try to keep them cool, and they have to have the instincts to do the rest.
    My condolences.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your sweet May. I lost two of my beloved birds to the heat last summer, and I'm really hoping not to lose any more to that same fate again. May she rest in peace. [​IMG] It's so sad losing a friend, no matter what species they are.
