I did not know which section to post in so just picked this one. We had had no chicken losses for quite awhile. I was feeling fortunate. Today baby ( 4 inches tall was found in duck pool) I cry as I type. She was the only chick that hatched from a whole batch. About 3 weeks ago another hen cue drowned there also. Also in between 2 hens fawn and icy have disappeared. 4 and 3 hens. I do not know what the baby was yet, but it is always hens. I love my chickens but making me so sick that i almost do not want them anymore. Too much pain. thought I would share with people on here who care like I do. I love them and do not want anymore (especially hens or my pet scissor beak) to be taken. Thank you for letting me cry.Why my mom growing up on chicken farm said they were never pets. I am way too attached. - My baby.
