    I called her the next day after I had time to cool off because that's what I felt would be the right thing to do rather than call her when I felt so angry yet.
    She felt really bad and before I even asked her about paying for the birds she said she would like to replace them all plus whatever food and meds we had into them on top of that [​IMG] They are such wonderful neighbors. I didn't want to have to ask for money so I'm glad she offered first. I told her I may be placing an order for hatching eggs and she is paying for those for me plus I need to let her know what else she owes me. I told her it all depends on what hatches out...If I get six out of the dozen to hatch than we will call it even because I lost three and one is still missing so if I get a couple extra hens out of the deal that would be fine with me. I'm glad I have great neighbors..and she also told me she loves us for not being so angry with them about it [​IMG]

    It is good that the two of you were able to discuss it amicably. Sounds like you have a wonderful neighbor!

    It is good to hear a good neighbor story. I am sorry that you lost your girls and am glad that it is not being made worse by an unreasonable neighbor.

    what a blessing! and smart of you to cool your jets before speaking with her. you are a great neighbor yourself!

    i love the fact that our neighbors support our chicken farming! they LOVE the roosters! how amazing is that! it makes life wonderful. and in turn, i give them eggs and beautifully processed chickens. works great for all of us!

    I'm so glad it worked out okay for you. I mean, it's a royal bummer you have to start all over again with your chickens, but it's great it ended peacefully.

    Implement Golden Rule. :cool:check.
