i feel bad. My daughter's Grand Champion black silkie passed away yesterday. She was young, only 5 years old. she really was a good bird. Dumb as dirt and cute as a button. She was one of our two therapy birds. the 4H kids LOVED her and they all used her for educational display and public information at the fair. My daughter is sad, but doing fine. I think we'll have her cremated. it has been an odd couple of days. I hope her roo is going to be okay her loved her.
