I just found my 9yo ds's RSL hen dead. She was only a bit over 2.Found her in the coop. I will tell the kids once we are home. Hopefully the excitement over the baby guinea pigs will distract them from the death. Do you just tell it like it is,give a hug,and move on? I got the bird in the garage.Going to bury her once we are home.Thankfully it is a quirky day of warmth and rain,so I can dig the hole easy. I am glad she died fast,and did not linger with illness like my other RSL hen. My dd takes it well,but my son is always so emotional.Dreading it!
