Well I know I did the right thing , but that does not make it any easier.With all the gas drilling noise here right behind us my Americaunas were just totaly stressing and pulling feathers out, hiding in the coop and I knew they were not happy and thriving. So with a lot of thought and knowing what I had to do, I called a good friend , Ninjapoodles, and asked her to take them. She happily agreed to do so and came and picked them up today. I did not even have the heart to catch them, I feel like smuck right now, like I betrayed 5 babies that I have raised from 1 day old. I know that they will have a great life and enjoy the peace and quiet now and have a little girl that will love them. I feel bad for me, and I miss them terribly, but I know it was the right and best thing I could give them. I still feel bad, and I have cried tears for them, and my husband thinks I am silly " they are just chickens you know" but I feel like they were my babies and I let them down by sending them away. I know they will have a great home though and I thank Belinda so much for taking them in. It still hurts though and makes me sad.
