I was changing out the paper towels for the night and made everyone move out of my way...only one of them didn't move. I think it was smothered by the others and I have since moved the lamp over several inches to keep them from piling up in a corner. It was one of my Barred Rocks so it could have been male or female since we got so many of them when ordering. I ordered 18 and got 22. It wasn't one of the specialty breeds that I ordered but still sad. I hated to tell the kids but the main thing they were concerned about was "Was it mine?" But they still wanted to tell that one good bye and said "Poor little thing..." Let's just hope we don't have a repeat.
