Our ailing bantam Wyandotte finally gave up the fight overnight. She was only 6 mos old, had never even reached maturity. What a heart-wrenching thing to wake up to this morning- a pet that died for no known reason. It's so frustrating to not know what happened or why. What a terrible, sad waste. She just stopped eating when she started to decline, so I suspect the final culprit was starvation. Our ::four little ladies:: are now three (until the 3 chicks are large enough to be introduced). My daughter was still crying a little when I took her to school. At least her suffering is over. Poor little thing. RIP, Wyandotte, you will be missed.
