Or I will be when I break the news of one more little chick. So I was out driving and I see this feed store and I stop by looking for stuff for my chickens…. but these sexed chicks came in on the 18th so naturally I have to go look at them. And as usual I can't keep my paws away… but anyway... I see this poor little Buff Orp. chick and she doesn't look so good, I mean no nasal discharge or sickness signs but she's having some issues breathing. Sad, I pick her up and try to feel her neck; besides the gasping and tiredness she doesn't look ill. Her eyes are bright but she's just not kicking it. Then those… "UGH WHY ME!" feelings come and i massage her a little. She has water in her crop so she has been drinking. After holding her a bit she revitalizes a bit but does not cheep. it's like she can't. Then… she barks. A little attempt at a cheep. And then again and she seems to feel a bit better and eats a little when i draw the other chicks out with my tidbit call. (I'm sure the store owner was like…What is she doing…? 0.o) I talk to the store owner who ends up being a really nice guy who loves his own chickens and before I know it I have the chick with me in the car and i'm thinking. I am a dead person when I get home. So I don't think she's actually sick, maybe she has respiratory issues or has something in her throat. I don't know…. at least she cheeps a bunch now,even if it's still little hoarse bark-cheeps.. I know the chances are against her but i couldn't leave it there after seeing it like this at least it'll be comfortable right? (I didn't buy it for the going price either $5). Store owners can't sell dead chicks so he said $2 and of course, me as stupid as I am (because who in the right mind buys a clearly ailing bird) got her. I'm keeping her separate but seeing they came in 3 days ago from mc. Murray i'm not terrified she has a disease (but i'll be safe anyways) So am I stupid or what? Plus when my mother comes home I have to break the news that I couldn't stay away and have another. She's an animal person and will understand somewhere inside but I'm still due for a tongue lashing. Hey isn't being 18 great? Anyways I'll keep this up if people are interested to see if she makes it. She's only a few days old and is just so cute…. T_T I really hope she makes it, I could use a Buff Orpington hen around anyways.
