    To all of you who have been encouraging me with Ernie through his " big lump" ordeal and are waiting for the news tomorrow of his surgery.... I am heartbroken to have to tell you.... he was killed last nite by a WEASEL that got into my barn along with 13 other Silkies and baby Muscovies.
    I am so upset.... i just finished burying everybody and I really wasn't looking forward to have to report this to you.
    The jerk was still in the barn when i went in there this morning and the dog tried to get it but is so fast.. i hope he will be back because if the dog doesn't get him the shotgun will [​IMG]
    Here are pictures of some of my beauties that are no longer with me....

    Aww, I'm so sorry. Crazy how we get attached to animals that some consider disposable. [​IMG]
