    I lost my Chicken Little and Mystery to (I believe) a tree rat last night. They were the sweetest little things. :( I wasn't aware that rats were capable of this.
    My chick Sparkles has a hurt leg. I don't think its broken but she is limping. She let's me move it back and forth without complaining. She did drink water and ate a tiny bit of bread. She's very sleepy. I hope she makes it.
    I'm sorry this post isn't very cohesive.

    That really sucks! Rats are NASTY customers. NASTY. NASTY. NASTY.

    Sparkles ate and drank some more. She definitely has pain in her leg. I don't see any bite marks and it articulates normaly. It seems like it hurts when she puts weight on it. Should I just watch her closely or is there something else I can do to ease her pain?
