    Poor little miracle just did not thrive. Gotta hand it to her for spirit though. She died around 2 am in my hand...she could not even eat. But I was amazed that she stood up, opened her eyes and looked at me and then just sat down and was gone.

    But thanks for all the wonderful advice.

    Thanks all...I am okay with it but DD took it very hard. She cried and cried all night. I told her I thought it was far better for Miracle to make it here and know only love, affection, good care and a good home as opposed to being weak at the hatchery. I explained to her that they would have culled her or she would have died all alone. so she is handling it better. We took her over to our new house (we are moving next week) and she buried her under a shady Madrone tree.

    I knew I would eventually lose one but I was hoping it would not be for some time yet. She was a sweet little thing.
