    Have 6 girls, Barred Rocks, 3 baby Orpingtons arriving soon. Love them lots. I don't know who's more spoiled them or me.

    I have one that is very sick and I'm thinking she may be the first one I'll have to put down. I'm really distressing over this. I know it's something I need to know how to do, I owe them a peaceful departure. But what is the best way? I'm so afraid I'll do something wrong.

    Ugh.The hardest part.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Sorry to hear you have a sick bird :hugs It sure can be a hard thing having to deal with euthanasia. I too have agonised over these things before. Sumi has left you a good link to check out, I hope it helps you.

    Good luck :fl

    I'm so sorry. Unfortunately that's something anyone with animals faces at one time or another. Sumi has given you a good link, hope it helps.
