    Today I lost a good friend. [​IMG] She was a Dark Brahma named Angel. She had not been feeling well the last few days and was on antiboditics and isolated from the rest of the flock. I had talked to the vet on friday and she told me to put her on the medication and keep her warm. Angel was one of my favorites from the time she was a chick. She would always greet me at the door. As a chick she would jump in my lap and stay there until I put her down. She would have been a year old this week. She was one of my first chickens. So far everyone else is fine. I hope it stays that way. I guess the weather here fits the way I feel, dark and gloomy.

    Thanks everyone! I knew you would understand where others don't. I found this picture of her taken a few weeks ago (she is the one in the front).

    I'm so sorry. She was a beautiful girl. I love my Brahmas, but I never got a Dark one.
