    Yesterday our sweet Twisty died. We knew she was not going to live as long as we wanted due to her twisted beak. We did our best to keep her healthy, grinding food and feeding her seperately, hand feeding, clipping her beak every couple of days, but Friday night she just seemed so weak. She never really could get the nutrition that the other chickens did. She was our favorite and followed us around everywhere. She would come into the house, jump on our lap and let us carry her like one of Paris Hiltons Chiuauas.
    Her beak just got worse and worse as hse got older and there was no trimming it back to make it even, plus her tougue dried out a little where it hung out. We will miss dear Twisted Twisty.

    if u have a sliding glass window? because if u do the black bird might have tried to fly in the house ans just brok his neck? so i dont think the bird would have caused it ,lik u said she probly passed from her not gitting the nutriens that she needed

    Godspeed, Twisty.
    You gave her the best chance at a normal life you could and she rewarded you by living as long as she did. [​IMG]

    wow. its hard hard to lose them. You were a great parent to Twisty and im sure she loved you! Just think of how much you've helped her in her life. If she had lived somewhere else, she might not have had such a devoted owner.
