I sent Ana to let the chickens out of the coop since it is so beautiful out today. Hopper (Buttercup pullet) and Sasquatch (Silkie cockerel) were jumping into each other ... it was pretty funny. Hopper had her feathers all fluffed out and they were like chest butting each other (if that makes sense). Than out of the blue our dog Freddie went to the chickens and grabbed ahold of Hopper. I ran outside to find Ana and Jacob sobbing as Ana picked Hopper up off the ground, her neck flopping. Jacob said "we gotta take her to the vet". I knew she was already gone, though. By then I'm bawling my eyes out and hugging Jacob and Ana. Hopper was one of the first chickens we got. We are just heartbroken. She was such a neat girl. Very friendly. She liked to perch on our shoulders. We are gonna miss her so much. Sorry to post a sad story but I had to share with someone else who would understand our pain.
