Discuss, share and chat about all things relating to keeping Chickens including health issues
I'm sorry if it sounds like a platitude, but I'm so sorry to read your terrible news. There really isn't anything else I can say that will make it less bad. I'm glad you have the chooks and Carol to help you through such an awful time. Hugs from me too.
I am so sorry Jackie for your loss which must have been a dreadful and painful shock and I can only echo what everyone else has said. I can only imagine, not know what you are going through but my heart goes out to you.
So glad that you are finding help from caring for you chickens, especially your two new girls that your husband bought for you,
I am now a widow and live with my memories.
Thank you so much for all your kind words.they are much appreciated.
It is very hard at the moment but I thought by writing what I felt about the chickens being a great help helped me a lot.
On a brighter note I think Chelsea might be about to lay her first egg. She is squatting and in and out of the nest box .
4 lovely girls~~ Clover, the oldie and top chick Bonnie second in command .new girls Bluebell and Blossom.
2 lovely new girls 19-01-2015~~ Chelsea and Ruby.

The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.” - unknown
Jackian - I'm sure your Laner friends will always be happy to hear from you whatever you feel you need to say.
Ian must have been a lovely, thoughtful husband. He'd be so pleased that Chelsea is about to score a goal, so to speak.
Bea; 19 hens (most of whom I intended to get); 6 bantams (which I never intended to have); old Benji dog and young Toby dog (who I definitely wanted). Three years into country living and loving it.
Jackian I am so sorry to read of your sad news. I am so glad you have your hens to care for. It would be lovely if Chelsea could score an egg
